Safari fun

Wednesday, May 28th, 2008

Here’s how to enable the developer mode in the Safari web browser. This is good for web developers who want to test the website with various browser user agents. I’ve also heard it’s good for hacking at certain bookstores/coffee houses, but I wouldn’t know anything about that.
Apple Safari
Go to the Apple Terminal and type in this:
defaults write com.apple.Safari IncludeDebugMenu 1
Safari in Windows XP
With Microsoft WordPad open
C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Application Data\Apple Computer\Safari\Preferences\com.apple.Safari.plist
Note: Application Data is a hidden directory by default, therefore unhide it or type something like
wordpad C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Application Data\Apple Computer\Safari\Preferences\com.apple.Safari.plist
<p>at run or the command prompt.

Before the last </dict> type in the following:

<key>IncludeDebugMenu</key>
<true/>
