Want to develop your own extensions? Click to join Safari Developer Program.
Here’s the official notification to consider before adding Extensions:
Extensions can modify the appearance and behavior of Safari, and access your private information at websites. Apple is providing links to these extensions as a courtesy, and makes no representations regarding the extensions or any information related thereto. When you download and install an extension, the file is delivered by the developer, not by Apple. Some of the extensions listed here may require payment to the developer for use of the extension; this transaction is between the user and the developer. Any questions, complaints, claims, or support requests regarding an extension must be directed to the appropriate software developer.
On the Safari menu bar go to File > Share. You can choose to email this page, message, Twitter, or Facebook. Go to Safari Help and note the categories there for additional ways to use Safari.
In Help note some useful tips: have you used Reader? You can print an article without all the ads in the sidebars. Do you bookmark and then organize those bookmarks. Read about this under Help, too.
Have you used any of the Safari features and extensions? Improvements can be both challenging and rewarding. Want to share ideas with PMUG? Write me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Learning with Mac is fun! And productive!
