Is there any way to set Safari to open two home pages as two tabs when you open Safari? Or is there a way to when you un-minimize (or whatever it is called) Safari to tell it to reload all currently open tabs?

Safari problems

This can always be done using an Apple Script. I don't want to deprive you of learning AppleScript, so I would just say write a script that opens Safari, then tell Safari to open a new tab with the second homepage URL.

I know Applescript pretty well, so I guess I could do that. Thanks!

What about closing Safari, and having it save all the open tabs, and back histories so that they open liek that when you start it again. I hate having seven tabs of on going stuff open, only to have to quit for a restart due to an update or some thing, and then I loose all the trails that I made getting to those points... A quick bokmark fo each tab doesn't do anything for keeping the back history, and looking at the histry list doesn't make any sense because it's just in time order, not tab order, and then time within each tab. Tabs are really great, but it seems that the programmers have missed keeping the feature set up with the new ways of using a browser.

For you tab lovers

I've been using Shiira instead of Safari. As far as I can tell, it's Safari, but better. Shiira has a tab expose function, so if you want, you can see all your tab windows at once. You can see an example on this page:

Possibly Shiira has some capabilities you could use. You might want to check it out.
