Search tabs using the "Tab Overview"

The Safari Tab Overview screen includes a built-in feature that lets you search all open tabs in the current window. The only downside is that if you have multiple Safari windows open, you will need to perform this action in each window.

To get started, open Safari on your Mac and visit several sites on multiple tabs. Then click the Tab Overview button in the upper right corner of the Safari window.

(Alternatively, you can select View> Tab Overview in the menu bar or press Shift + Command + \ on your keyboard.)

You will now see all your open tabs in a grid view that Apple calls "Tab Overview". If you are using a modern version of Safari on your Mac, you will see a “Search Tabs” bar in the upper right corner.

(If you do not see the search bar there, scroll up to reveal it. We recommend that you update Safari immediately as using an older browser poses a huge security risk.)
