Four power tips for Safari 6

There are some tools that help in this direction (including some Safari extensions), but their success rate is far from 100% (I could easily deliver dozens of examples of web pages that don't print correctly).
It turns out that many web sites define a printing stylesheet which is outdated and not matching to the stylesheet used to display the content in the browser.
I was hoping that Safari 6 would offer an option to ignore that stylesheet, and print an exact hardcopy of what is shown in the browser, but unfortunately, that didn't happen.
I use Paparazzi! for this and have been very satisfied.

Couldn't agree more. Safari without Glims is like fries without salt. To be honest, without the additional features Glims adds (especially search engine choices) I would probably have defected to Firefox by now. Safari still needs to fix the terrible bookmarking system (I just don't get how having to open a tab to see your bookmarks is a benefit) and that dumb Google-me-too unibox (which forgets your original search term).

To each his own. I used to have glims, but it added very little actual functionality, so I removed it (according to the principle of "the fewer barnacles, the better").
For glims features, see: http://www.macupdate...mac/27708/glims
See how many are already in Safari.

The benefit is that you can drag any url directly into your bookmark collection and place it precisely where you want it without having to scroll a list in a drop-down menu that reaches from here to China. Personally, there's no way that I could manage such a large bookmark collection without Safari. No other browser even comes close. Different strokes for different folks.

This doesn't exist in Safari 6.0.2 for OSX. Lion 10.7.5 Not even in Customize Toolbar.
There is a "Mail" button in the Customize menu.
There are File menu items with shortcuts called -
"Mail Contents of this page" and
"Mail Link to this page".
But no "Share" button anywhere.

The problem is 10.7.5. It doesn't support the function, so it doesn't show it. On 10.8.2, the function is exactly as described

That's right, the "Share" button in Safari 6 only works with Mountain Lion, not Lion or Snow Leopard.

Just an FYI: If you're a keyboarder, you can use Command-Shift-[ and Command-Shift-] to cycle back and forth through the tabs in a window.
Additionally, Command-[ and Command-] will perform the "Back" and "Forward" functions in the frontmost Safari window.
Happy New Year!
