macOS: Safari’s Secret Open Recently Closed Tabs Tip

Watching Apple since 1999. I don't say what they should do. I say what they might do. They sometimes do.

    Jonny, thank you so much for the tip. Also, thank you for a perfect example of how Apple fails big time today with UI. Apple has forgotten the very principles it pioneered that gave rise to the personal computer revolution as we know it. Had we stayed stuck with the CLI, computing would have never gone mainstream; at the very least it would have severely hampered progress. The failure with the CLI is not with its lack of power or flexibility, but rather discoverability. What good is a feature if a user is not aware of its existence? The big distinguisher between Apple and Microsoft was the UI, specifically the elegance of the interface. As time goes on, Apple is digressing, succumbing to complexity while Microsoft treads water, dog paddles maybe. Apple can do better and it should. Learning from its past would be a good way to start.

    No need to control-click, just click and hold.
