Play videos in a floating window

When you watch a video, click and hold the Audio button in the Smart Search field, then choose Enter Picture in Picture. The video floats on top, so you can always see it. Drag the video to any corner of the screen, and resize it to see more or less of what’s behind it.

A Safari window with the first part of a website address entered in the Smart Search field. The same website appears in the results list under Switch to Tab, because it’s already open in another tab.

Avoid duplicate tabs

If you start typing a website address in the Smart Search field, and the website is already open in another tab, Safari shows the website in the results list. Choose the website to use the existing tab.
