Safarific Browser Add-ons
Safari may not be your default browser, but if you have Jaguar or better, you have it. Now, you can get more out of it with great add-ons and enjoy cool new features in the beta. And, for those of you stranded on Windows you can finally join the party.
We know its fast. And its given that the beta will be buggy. But there are some other lesser-know but cool features. Tabs can be dragged between windows. Inline find and resizable text fields add Apple suave to your browsing.
While its not a 100% Mac experience, Safari on Windows is a nice change and very fast. Finally, Safari is a cross-platform experience.
Safari doesn’t support extensions like Firefox, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t usefull add-ons. Take SafariPlus: with it you can take control of your cookies and block annoying animations. And don’t worry, there’s already an alpha version compatible with the 3.0 beta.
Enhance your image browsing experience with this great add-on for Safari. PicLens transforms Flickr and other popular image sites into a slick light-box style full-screen interface with instant image loading and even Apple remote support.
We’ve featured this project before. This user script add-on for Safari has matured to .9 and added support for more Greasemonkey functions – making it more compatible with user scripts hosted at userscripts.org.
Want to alter the display of webpages without user scripts? SurfRabbit supports the whole family of WebKit browsers, and allows you to reshape how pages display in your browser. Cleaning up sites littered with clutter is as easy as selecting the elements you don’t want to see.
Happy surfin’ Safari!
