    Safari question
    I just got my new Mac mini and I am trying to get familiar with the OSX interface. Pardon me if I don't sound to bright but i have been an avid PC/windows guy for over a decade.

    MY question is how do i make the Safariscreen (or any screen for the matter) bigger? I've noticed if i drag the bottom right corner i can stretch it out but is their a quicker way?

    Do any other browsers support the OSX interface or should i just stick with Safari?

    What you are doing is exactly what you need to do to make the window bigger.

    Camino, Firefox, and Opera all have OS X versions, and they're all nice in their own way. Saft, a $12 add on for Safari does provide a lot of extras, including full-screen mode.

    I went to our local Apple store and did a one on one training with one of the experts and learned some good stuff. One thing i noticed is that on the stores Safari it had an option that said Open new tab. I don't see that on mine. I even bought the Saft extension but dont see it. Am I missing something?

    Edit: I found it in preferences.

    Here is a link to a piece of freeware that I can't live without. It adds a "new tab" button to your safari toolbar. Enjoy!
