    Hey there! There are many people who do like the new Safari 4, but don't like the new tabs. I am one of them, and if you are too, follow this tutorial

    Here is a fast tutorial on how to change the tabs of your Safari 4 to the tabs that were below the Bookmarks Bar in the previous versions of Safari.

    Let's get started.

    To ENABLE the old Safari tabs:

    1. Quit Safari.

    2. Go to Applications --> Utilities --> Terminal.app

    3. Run the following command in Terminal:
    Code:
    defaults write com.apple.Safari DebugSafari4TabBarIsOnTop false
    4. Quit Terminal. (Optional).

    5. Open up Safari 4 and enjoy!

    To DISABLE the old Safari tabs:

    1. Quit Safari.

    2. Go to Applications --> Utilities --> Terminal.app

    3. Run the following command in Terminal:
    Code:
    defaults delete com.apple.Safari DebugSafari4TabBarIsOnTop
    4. Quit Terminal. (Optional).

    5. Done. You can now use Safari with the default Safari 4 tabs.

    Hope this helped.

    Thanks,

    I heard about this elsewhere and have been using it, but I'm sure it will be useful to some.
