Quick Tip: SnapBack in Safari 6 on Mountain Lion

In Safari versions up to 5.x, there was a SnapBack button sitting at the far right in the URL bar. When you searched and clicked on a link in the results list, you could navigate further from site to site and still quickly return to your earlier search results. That button is gone in Safari 6 on Mountain Lion.

But the good news is that the SnapBack feature is still available; only, this time you’ll use a keyboard shortcut, which is even better. If you type Command-Option-S, the SnapBack feature will take you back to search results just as in the “old days”.

    Le raccourci (flèche orange) était plus pratique. Dommage !

    This is a great tip thank you. I prefer the click on a link approach but at least there is something.
