How to Restore Safari Last Opened Tabs (Session)

By | June 30, 2009 | 3 Comments

During Safari 4 browsing experience on Windows, I couldn’t understand why Safari won’t restore my last opened web pages during the launch nor do find a way to do that. Fortunately, I have found a solution to do that and it’s really simple.

If menu bar is hidden, hit Alt to enable it, then click:
History > Reopen All Windows from Last Session

WebKit Vulnerabilities Fixed

By | June 11, 2009 | 0 Comments

WebKit Vulnerabilities FixedThe latest Chrome version 2.0.172.31 and Safari 4.0 has fixed one of the vulnerabilities which was exploited in WebKit earlier this month.

As H Online describes: A vulnerability in WebKit can be exploited by an attacker to crash a tab or execute arbitrary code in Google Chrome due to a memory corruption issue in WebKit’s handling of recursion in certain DOM event handlers. For an attack to be successful, a victim must first visit a maliciously crafted website. The malicious code, however, will be sandboxed, limiting the damage that an attacker can do when exploiting the vulnerability.
