If you’re in need of a powerful browser that also does a great job when it comes to the private area, it means you should definitely give Safari a try. This browser will bring you robust customizations, exciting privacy protections, as well as battery life optimizations.
In other words, your laptop’s battery won’t drain too fast if you use Safari to navigate online, compared to how your ‘juice’ will run out if you activate other browsers. That’s a huge ‘plus,’ and the dev team responsible for the Safari browser knows it very well.
Accessing the browsing history can be very useful even if you have a great memory. Nowadays, when we open up countless web pages every day for our tasks, it’s simply impossible to remember everything we do each day. That’s why checking the browsing history from time to time is a ‘must.’
However, it can be a bit challenging to check the browsing history on the Safari browser, but it’s certainly not impossible. Let’s learn how to do it, depending on what device you use:
- Open the Safari browser.
- View the History area: You need to select the open book icon that appears in the bottom area of the display in order to access the bookmarks. After that, tap on the clock icon.
- Browse history: A list of the websites you’ve recently visited will appear to you, meaning that you are free to scroll down on the list to see your browsing history. Easy as a walk in the park!
If, on the other hand, you’re using the Safari browser from a MacBook computer, the process of checking your browsing history is a bit different. But don’t worry, as it’s nothing impossible. Here are the steps you need to take:
- Launch the Safari browser
- View history by selecting the ‘History’ tab from your top menu bar.
- An option known as “Show all history” will appear in the drop-down menu, and you will have to click on it.
- When the new window opens, your complete browsing history will unfold before your eyes, along with all your past mistakes. Enjoy!
Top alternatives to Safari
Although Safari is one of the fastest browsers out there, it’s certainly not perfect, or you may just become fed up with it after a while. This means that you should look for alternatives, and lucky for you, we know a few that we’ll be exposing below:
Firefox is a great browser, even though a lot of people seem to have forgotten about it. It’s known for its speed and clean and friendly interface, which means that you won’t get caught wondering how to use the app.
Mozilla Firefox is also highly versatile, as it works for Windows, Android, macOS, Linux, and iOS.
Edge is the successor of the old Internet Explorer, and it’s light-years better. Similarly to Chrome, Microsoft Edge has also been built on the Chromium engine. This also means that the browser offers performance and compatibility with Chrome extensions.
Edge is also very adaptable, as it works on Windows, macOS, Android, and iOS. Although it’s not available for Linux, that shouldn’t be a strong reason to neglect it.
While Apple has been pretty active in supporting and advocating for web standards, the Safari browser, which is owned by the Cupertino-based tech giant, has been an early adopter of emerging web technologies and standards endorsed by various organizations such as the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).
