Safari Session Save & Restore with ForgetMeNot

My foray into the Mac OS X world is fraught with daily challenges as I try to learn my way around this new environment.

Firefox has long been my browser of choice on Windows and Linux. So now, I’ve used it on Mac, and while I still like it, I’ve felt the urge to try out “Mac native” apps such as the bundled Safari web browser. For the most part, switching to Safari meant learning new keyboard shortcuts, but one thing that was really killing me is that if I closed Safari or it crashed, I lost all my tabs. I am a pretty heavy user of the auto session save in Firefox.

So, I found ForgetMeNot. This great little GPL’d plugin for Safari does exactly what it says, it saves, then reloads windows and tabs when I relaunch Safari. No frills, no extras, no money (but please feel free to donate). I’m a fan of tools that do their job well. This one does it.
