Safari Snapback: Go Back To Google Search Results with a Single Click

The Google search field in Safari is convenient when you want to find something on the web. Enter a few words into the search field and press return to instantly see search results.

Sometimes though, when you've clicked links taking you deeper into one of the web sites from the search results, you decide you haven't quite found what you were looking for.

This is where Safari's Snapback feature comes in. Instead of clicking the Back button a bunch of times to return to the search results, click the Snapback button (the orange circle with the arrow in it, in the search field).

SnapBack remembers the last Google results page you viewed, making it as easy as a single click to get back to the search results to explore another web site.

Google Pacman in Mobile Safari

Google celebrated the 30th anniversary of the classic arcade video game, "Pacman", (first appearing in arcades on May 22, 1980 in Japan) by creating and hosting a Google-ized version of the game on their home page.

The brilliant part is that you can play it in the mobile version of Safari on the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. To control Pacman, swipe your finger in the direction you want him to go.

Google continues to make their version of Pacman available to the public at google.com/pacman. Give it a try. It's fun.
