    If you want to close all Safari tabs at once, hold down the option key and click the X on any tab. All will close except that one.

    1. for often visited pages I use a startpage, which is available at all browsers, like http://www.start.io
    2. the most used pages I visit every day are on pinned tabs, which also canā€™t be closed by mistake. They are available in every new window (but load only when actively accessed) - very handy.

    How do I make the tabs of fixed maximum width?
    I do not like the way 2 or 3 tabs expand to the width of the window.

    Al: Tabs will fill the space. So with 2 tabs, each takes up 50%. With 3 tabs, each takes up 33.3%. And so on. That's just how it works. Otherwise, there would be blank space to the right.

    I prefer the way the maximum tab width works in Firefox where there is that blank space to the right of tabs.
    The 50% or 33% tab requires a greater excursion of the cursor just to move to a new tab.
    For me, a smaller fixed maximum tab width is aesthetically superior when there is more than one tab.
    I'd like to have the option to set it.

    I guess its what one gets used to.

    Thanks for your quick reply. You have been, and are, providing a great service to the Mac community.
