iOS 8 and Mac OS X Yosemite have come with a number of features that have sorted out quite a lot of annoying issues. Not too long ago users had to take the pain of deleting entire previously visited pages from Safari history if they forgot to delete any individual pages. It was rather irritating as they didn’t have any other alternative. Get rid of all browsing history or nothing!

    The instructions for deleting pages from one’s history in Safari (Yosemite) aren’t working in Safari 8.0.7.

    I’m working on a web site that’s hosted at easy-server.com, and I’ve always accessed it in Safari by typing “easy,” then hitting return. Unfortunately, I recently followed a link that took me to a tumblr blog that begins with the word “easy.” Now, whenever I type “easy,” Safari defaults to the tumblr site instead of my wordpress site.

    So, I followed these instructions and deleted the tumblr site from Safari’s history—and it’s definitely gone from the history. However, when I type “easy” in Safari’s address bar, Safari STILL autocompletes the name of the tumblr site.

    So, while the unwanted site no longer appears in the history *list*, these steps apparently have no effect upon the autocomplete function in Safari’s text bar.
