Hidden preferences in Safari 4

Nearly every browser has “hidden” preferences. Options that you can set by running a command, editing a file, or changing an entry here or there. The Safari 4 Beta, which has only been out for a few days, is no different.

Caius, of Random Genius, recently published some of these hidden preferences including:

  • A way to restore the old tab bar.
  • Turning off the auto-complete search bar.
  • Removing Coverflow.
  • …and much more.

I am not sure why you’d want to change some of these preferences (as I feel they are some of the best features of the new version of Safari), but they are there, you can if you want, and Caius shows you how.
