I feel impressed on many new features of Safari 4 and I believe you feel the same. However, some of the features are not essential for us and may even break our usual workflow. This creates the urge to disable some of the features.
In this article, we will discuss with you new features of Safari 4, as well as Terminal command lines that can be used to disable these new features.
Note. For using Terminal command line provided, you follow these steps:
In Safari 4, the tab bar is totally redesigned and put to top of the browser, just like what we see in Google Chrome. It takes time to adapt to this change, but you can always change it to old position using following Terminal command lines.
defaults write com.apple.Safari DebugSafari4TabBarIsOnTop -bool NO killall Safari & open -a Safari

Like the autocomplete form, now Safari 4 provides autocomplete menu for its URL bar. By typing a few letters for the URL, Safari 4 can help us search through History for matching URLs.
