Quickly Clear Safari Website Data

Often times I find myself needing to clear the website data stored in Safari, and while Safari does provide a mechanism for accomplishing this task, it is a (minimum) three step process that first waits until the data is loaded before allowing to remove.

Cumbersome. 🧐

Thankfully, there is a little trick I use that speeds up this process, which only requires enabling and disabling ‘Block all cookies’ setting instead.

Personally, I find this method much faster for resetting Safari, but honestly wish there was a programatic method for performing this type of privacy cleanup.

Keep Safari Pinned Tabs Open

One of the most annoying things I experience when closing a tab in Safari is when it is the last tab and closing closes the entire window (including pinned tabs).

Thankfully, there is a simple remedy to fix this. In System Preferences go to Keyboard > Shortcuts > App Shortcuts and add a new shortcut for Safari, with the menu title of Close Tab and the command of ⌘W.

Done and done.
