Many Mac users prefer Google Chrome over Safari. (If you’re one of them, you can select Chrome as the default browser in System Preferences > General.) But there are actually several settings hidden within Safari that make it a much more attractive option.
Do you hate those auto-playing videos spread across various websites? We do, too. Luckily, you can have Safari put an end to them by going to Safari > Preferences > Websites > Auto-Play. In the dropdown menu in the bottom-right, select Never Auto-Play.
Safari also supports website favicons, though it’s typically off by default. You can enable it by going to Safari > Preferences > Tabs and hitting the box next to Show website icons in tabs.
