Safari 6 (OS X Mountain Lion): Visit Bonjour websites

Visit Bonjour websites in Safari

You can quickly visit websites of nearby devices, such as printers and other computers, by adding Bonjour to your bookmarks bar, bookmarks list, or Bookmarks menu. Then Safari can detect Bonjour website announcements and include them in your bookmarks list automatically.

Bonjour connects your computer to nearby printers and servers, shared music and photos, Messages users (or iChat users in OS X Lion), and more. For example, a printer may use Bonjour to “announce” its website to your local network. Other shared resources, such as music playlists shared by people on nearby computers, can also announce their availability in this way.

Some Bonjour websites and devices require a password.

For more information about Bonjour, visit the Apple support website for Bonjour.
