In Safari, as well as other web browsers, you can find built-in bookmark service to help you surf the web and take your surfing result as reference easily. Today, I'm going to share you some of the tricks in using Safari browser bookmark.
Let's get started by familiarizing with two kinds of Safari browser bookmark.
Bookmarks Bar is located just above your browser tabs. Bookmarks that are placed in this bookmarks bar are meant to be accessed quickly as future reference. I usually put my recent bookmarks on the bookmarks bar first before moving them to my bookmarks menu.
Tip: There is an easy-to-remember shortcut to access to bookmarks stored in bookmarks bar: Command-1, Command-2, Command-3, etc. These shortcuts are automatically assigned according to the order of your bookmarks from left hand side of the browser (exclude bookmarks folder).

Update: Apple has uploaded WWDC 2008 Keynote Address.

Safari has been optimized for Mac and because of that, it becomes the best browser for running on Mac. However, with Firefox empowered by plenty of plugins, it's confusing to determine which one to choose: Safari or Firefox?

Usually, what will you do when you want to start new search with Google search bar on the top-right corner of your web browser? There are three ways to do that.
This is the least advanced way. However, most of my friends still use this way. First, you open new tab (keystrokes : Command-T), followed by typing in the url address "www.google.com", filling in the search term and Google will return you the result.
