Browse the web, customize your browsing, shop securely, read articles, and stop interruptions.
Customize browsing for each website
Choose how you browse on a website-by-website basis. For example, a website might have small text and images, so you can zoom in to make them larger. To customize websites, choose Safari > Preferences, then click Websites.
Shop securely with a touch
Shop securely on your Mac using Safari. When you’re ready to check out, look for Apple Pay, then complete your purchase using Touch ID on your Mac, iPhone, or Apple Watch.
Read articles clutter free—every time
Get rid of the ads and links on webpages so you can focus on the words and pictures. To read all your webpages this way, Control-click in the Smart Search field, then select “Use Reader Automatically on [website].”
Stop interruptions from noisy websites
Get some peace and quiet while browsing by shutting off the audio and video that seem to come out of nowhere. Control-click in the Smart Search field, then click Settings for This Website. Hold the pointer to the right of Auto-Play, then click the pop-up menu and choose Never Auto-Play.
