When using safari and surfing the net it keeps on the last page of a site that I have visited so eventually I an left with a number of pages open. How can I set this so old page are closed when moving on to a new site. Cheers

Thomo, is the next site opening in a new window or a new tab in the existing window?

that’s usually set within the HTML of the site your visiting which forces the link to open in a new window or tab.

Seems to be layering as in a new window. As I close the open window with the red button the last site I visited is behind as it would have been when viewing the page.

Install "Glims" it will give you more Safari options under Preferences.
