Safari Top Sites

The Top Sites feature in Safari allows you to quickly bring up previews of the sites you visit the most and jump into any one of them. You can manually pin sites to appear in Top Sites and arrange them as you like. This is a good alternative to keeping many tabs open at all times as some users do.

    So clarifying! Great stuff.

    Learned something new today. But isn’t this kind of the same thing as Favorites?

    Karl: Several differences. Favorites are icons, not previews. And favorites have the Favorites Bar. Plus, Top Sites will get added to automatically, if there is room, based on what you visit frequently.

    Gary… I don’t see Top Sites in Safari on my iPad? Does it work there too… and sync with Safari on Mac?

    Rick: This tutorial shows Top Sites on the Mac. There is no Top Sites for iOS.

    Gary,
    My point exactly. Top Sites doesn’t work on iOS, so it might be better just to use Favorites so your “Top Sites or Favorites” copies across all the platforms. Thanks

    Hi. How come after I click on the left side, I get the icons for favorites and frequently visited, nothing you say to do (hovering with the mouse, etc) seems to happen? Also, when I go to bookmark, I do not get all those options – just to name and folder choice. I’m confused! Thanks!

    Jim: Make sure you have Top Sites enabled in Safari, Preferences, General, “New windows open with.” Not sure what you mean by bookmarking options. All I show are name and folder choice, and a description too.
