Safari Beta 2 trick: open multiple bookmarks in tabs

Safari Beta 2 (v73) features tabbed browsing. It would be nice to be able to open all of the bookmarks in a Bookmark Folder as individual Tabs. You could do this one-by-one, Command-T, navigate to the site, Command-T, navigate to the next site, etc., to create a bunch of Tabs with sites you visit often, but there’s a better way:

In Safari Beta 2, create a new Bookmark Folder using the “Add Bookmark Folder” command from the “Bookmarks” menu (or Command-Shift-N). Name the folder, for example, “Mac News,” and populate the folder with Bookmarks like MacDailyNews, MacCentral, MacNewz, Apple Hot News, etc. Now just drag that “Mac News” Bookmark Folder to Safari’s “Bookmark Bar” and Control-click (or right click for multi-button mouse users) the folder and choose “Open in Tabs.” Or you can choose “Open in Tabs” at the bottom of the Bookmarks list. Presto, all of the Bookmarks within that folder will open in individual Tabs. Nice!

One caveat: any existing Tabs you have in Safari’s Tab Bar will be removed.


  1. once you have the bookmarks in a folder on the bookmarks bar, you need only command-click the folder to open each one in tabs ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”grin” style=”border:0;” />

  2. yeah, great features we were all so long expecting.. but what if (say) I want to select only one particular link from the addressbook bar to open in a tab (while I have other tabs already opened). Shouldn’t CMD+click work the same for these links ?? It’s rather intuitive and convenient.
    Anyway, I love them as they are so far. probably next versions would deal with other minor details like this one.
