Clear Safari 5.1 Cache

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

When working on projects – I generally need to refresh pages multiple times (to see CSS changes, etc). I generally work with my browser’s cache disabled (Develop Menu > Disable Caches in Safari) but I noticed that simply pressing the return button on a page/site in Safari 5.1 did not work. It was driving me absolutely crazy. I then decided to click on the reload button in the address bar (far rich side) (looks like a circular arrow). This actually reloaded the page properly. I am not really sure why simply pressing return (to reload the page) did not work… Read More »

Developer Menu in Safari 3.1!

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 2 Comments

My preferred browser is Safari but when I need to do any serious debugging, I use Firefox because of the web developer, firebug, and yslow (for firebug) addons. In the most recent update of Safari (Safari 3.1), we now have the option to show a “Developer” menu (without any hacks) when using the browser. There are all kinds of goodies in the “Developer menu – one which I will end up using quite a bit: Web Inspector which is helpful for a number of things (viewing code for errors, optimization, even CSS editing if you want in the snippet editor)….

I have a busy few days coming up so I am not sure how much I can post. I decided to post a few random things that I find cool: I have officially gone through all my bookmarks and moved everything to de.licio.us so if you ever want see what I feel is bookmarkable…take a look. This is potentially really cool because you could get a RSS feed of all my bookmarks to see my latest additions or you could get a RSS feed of a specific tag or tags that I use for my bookmarks. Pretty slick. I have… Read More »

I have officially outgrown Safari’s RSS feed reader. I subscribe to around 100 RSS feeds and I need something better than what I have. My short list of I would ideally like: Mark as read. I use roughly three to four different computers a day and looking through the same news items because Safari cannot tell which I read is a pain Browser independent. After deleting all my bookmarks in Safari (that I used to sync between computers) I am using del.icio.us with all my browsers. I am using Flock more and more and absolutely loving it…but I also use… Read More »

troubleshooting rss feed problems in safari.

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

I now subscribe to almost 100 RSS feeds and use Safari to manage my them. Over the last year, I have run into problems with some of my RSS feeds where there is an error with one RSS feed and the error text seems to leak into other feeds. The blog/news entries still appear correctly, but all the summaries repeat the error. I tried emptying the cache, resetting Safari, deleting all the RSS feeds and re-importing them, but no luck. The solution: Quit Safari and delete ~/Library/Syndication/Database3. (this is the SQLite database that Safari stores all the RSS feeds) Since… Read More »
