Safari New Window
Previously I have written AppleScripts to open new windows for TextMate, Sublime Text 2 and also Safari. But the latter was somehow corrupt when using with Mac OS X 10.8.3, so I rewrote it based on previous two, adding features in the process:
- Checks if Safari is already running and creates new window (without switching spaces)
- Activates Safari if it’s not running yet.
The full source code is here:
-- quickly check if app is running.
-- Thanks https://discussions.apple.com/message/13184433#13184433
tell application "System Events" to (name of processes) contains appName
property appName : "Safari"
-- Open new windows or If app is not already running, start it
if appIsRunning(appName) then
tell application appName
make new document
tell application appName to activate
