Safaricon for Mac2.7

17 January 2006

Changes Safari user interface.

What is Safaricon for Mac

SafarIcon allows you to change Safari's user interface by installing icons as well as other application resources such as nib files and localization files. SafarIcon automatically downloads and installs a set of high quality icon themes. SafarIcon copies all graphical elements of Safari's user interface from its own themes into the Resources folder of Safari.app. The application previews the new icons in a simulated browser window. SafarIcon also gives you the option to install Brush Metal, Aqua or Unified appearances of both the browser and download windows with optional installation of a New tab button. In addition, it allows you set various hidden, but useful preference settings for Safari that are not accessible to the user through Safari.
  • Features over 20 high quality icon themes
  • Previews theme appearance before installing (WYSIWYG)
  • Flexible install options (full themes or individual icons)
  • Installs Aqua, Brushed Metal or Unified appearance
  • Option to install a New Tab button istead of Bug Report
  • Customizable preferences, including custom themes
  • Option to enable Safari's hidden Debug menu
  • Option to specify link styles and colors in Safari
  • Option to disable Safari's page and site icon caches
  • Option to instruct Safari to download PDFs instead of viewing in browser
  • Option to enable Safari to print page background images
  • Option to istruct Safari to show URL tooltips when hovering mouse over links
  • Option to specify Safari's history limits (in days, number of items, and menu items)
  • Optional auto-update of SafarIcon application, icon themes and appearance files from website

What's new in Safaricon

Version 2.7:
  • Compiled as Universal Binary
  • Updated Safari default theme
  • Updated nib files for Safari 2.0.3

A great program as being a business owner who has had staff visiting unauthorised web sites, it is very important to have Safari's history go further back than 7 to 14 days. Being able to extend this is a great benefit. In order for Safaricon to install the icon themes on OS 10.4.9 with Safari 2.0.4 I simply needed to download the icon theme called Safari, which is offered as an option when Safaricon is first installed. The history configuration worked without this download. Thanks again for a brillian program. One suggestion for those needing to obtain more detailed information such as time stamping and tracking duration of time spent on each web site, is to use WorkTracker from www.geocities.com/work_tracker

Excellent application. Easy to use, and updated as soon as Safari is updated for compatibility. Personally, I am surprised that Apple doesn't buy this and use it as a standard issue with Safari. Essential. I preferred the round buttons on the Oahu and Molokini interface/skin which are changed in this version. I emailed the author, Reinhold, and shortly after he emailed me the theme files for the round buttons! He also mentioned these will be available on his website if anyone is interested (go to the link for "More Information" for access).

I've been using this app since it first came out, and it just keeps getting better. The developer stays on top of Safari updates as Apple releases them, and his tech support is the best I've ever experienced. Would you believe a response within MINUTES to an email question? Oh, and it makes Safari look great, too. :)

I had the slowness problem but I did the following 1. Start program 2. Select theme and click install 3. Wait about 30 seconds or so 4. Authentication request dialog box came up. 5. Click Cancel 6. Dialog sheet appear asking for admin password 7. Enter password and check the save password in keychains check box 8. Click Ok. 9. The program started to apply the new theme without asking me for the password again. This one took about 30 seconds. The strange thing is that the Safaricon did not store the password in the keychains. Anyway, you may not experience the same thing I do.

Okay, I now have a version that returns the permissions to their original state. There are two caveats: 1. it is in fact considerably slower (22 vs 8 seconds on my Mac). 2. Since each and every icon needs to be modified using admin privileges (at least when changing the owner), it may trigger the dreaded glacial slowdowns that some people have observed in the 2.3.1 version. On all my Macs, this slowdown is not present and although the permissions fix slows down to 22 seconds for me, I cannot see the glacial speeds of 30 minutes or more that some people have experienced. In other words, I need beta testers (preferably those people who had the very slow transfers). I have placed a version of SafarIcon at the following URL: h**p://homepage.mac.com/reinholdpenner/SafarIconFix.zip. Please test theme installation with and without permission fix enabled (this is set in the Preferences) and let me know how it works.

Lamentably only the metal theme worked for me on my emac (10.4.3 with Safari 2.0.2) When I tried the aqua, my bookmarks menu wouldn't work. It would disappear and reappear as I ran the pointer over it, but nothing could be clicked on. Putting back the (ugly) metal theme fixed it back to working order.

I realize that some people are experiencing glacial speeds of icon transfers. I cannot reproduce this problem on any of my three Macs, so it's hard for me to troubleshoot this. I have compiled a modified version that may or may not fix this for those affected by the authentication problem that seems to be causing this on some sytems. Please download the modified version of SafarIcon at and email me back if this version behaves better for you.

Bug in Safaricon 2.2.2 on Tiger 10.4.1 If you click on the scrollbar to move down the list of themes to be downloaded while they are being downloaded the app gets stuck (not hung, since you can still open the About Safaricon window and it doesn't eat all available CPU, it just freezes in terms of theme download progress). Console generates this error: 2005-05-18 15:53:33.889 SafarIcon[3461] *** Assertion failure in +[NSEvent startPeriodicEventsAfterDelay:withPeriod:], AppKit.subproj/NSEvent.m:1446 2005-05-18 15:53:33.909 SafarIcon[3461] Periodic events are already being generated

Now that Tiger has introduced the new "Unified Titlebar/Toolbar" theme it would be nice if Safaricon would support this as an option. This is the new look that is used in Mail, System Preferences, Dictionary, and Help Viewer. I personally think this theme would look nice on Safari.

As long as I stay with Metal everything seems to work just fine. However the Aqua option seems to be broken - resulting in a skinless Safari, poorly interrogated buttons and broken tabs. However, since I've have not previously rated Safaricon, I'll leave ratings to reflect my past experience.

If you have the latest version of Safari, this program has disabled features. You cannot switch between aqua and brushed metal when you have 1.2.4. This means that if I set Safari to aqua while using 1.2.3, and then upgraded Safari to the latest version (that has been out for a long time now), there is no way to switch back. So Safari is now stuck in aqua, and because the developer put in a "feature" that cripples the software, I can't switch back. Moreover, this has happened TWICE! When I upgraded to 1.2.3, the feature was disabled until the developer released an update. Now, I'm waiting for the developer to release another update to support 1.2.4. By the time that happens, 1.3 will probably be out, and I won't be able to change anything back. So essentially, if you keep your software up to date, you now need to rely on some developer to get around to fixing their software every time you update it. I would be one thing if you had to wait a couple days... but my Safari has been stuck in aqua for MONTHS.

SafarIcon 2.0 works well, as always, but it displays the admin password instead of cloaking it with asterisks. On a home computer like mine this isn't a big problem, but it could be a security risk for someone using a Mac in a less private environment.

It says that the requirements are "Mac OS X 10.2 or later, Safari 1.2"... but Safari 1.2 ONLY RUNS ON 10.3 [which I have issues with, but I won't get into it here]. This seems to be causing a lot of confusion for people trying to install the app on 10.2.8. "Caveat emptor" [uhhh... though it's free & you're not buying it... :-P]

Tips: Be sure to download the extra themes in the Preferences. Click off the "copy to Safari". Then you can mix and match icons from several themes. Click "view custom theme". Then click install. (I think I got this right.) Don't click too fast.

Use the version check to install extra themes to avoid the -link (and the annoying OSX message that believes it know better than you how you want to name your files) for every single theme you'd otherwise download from the Safaricon site.

I've loved this app (despite its quirky interface) since the beginng, but I had a problem getting version 1.8 to quit under Panther. Finally had to Force Quit to get it to go away. Not exactly confidence-inspiring.

I loved this app when I ran 10.2.6 and 10.2.8 but I haven't tried it yet to see if 1.7 works with 10.3 and Safari v100. Has anyone tried it yet?

it has problems for me. it says at app startup "could not find SafarIcon in app support folder". It says that it'll move it automatically (in the read me) but it doesn't. Also manually moving it will not work neither. Help me. Using OS X 10.2.8, safari 1.0 v85.5 bsd installed

The Japanese localization of SafarIcon indeed has a small bug that creates this error message. The error only appears with certain Themes that lack a specific icon (that's why I didn't catch the bug). I will release a bug fix version soon. In the meantime, just click the message away and keep using SafarIcon. The error message will not cause any problems when installing themes (it's just annoying). HTH, -Reinhold

This works perfect! Is this done by same person that did it for Camino? It worked perfect also, would still be using it but Camino needs an update before I start using it again. I miss that browser, to bad, so so sad.

Delete the SafarIcon.plist file in your Preferences folder to solve the "file not found" error. Alternatively, just re-set the path to Safari in the Preferences tab.

I really like the tweaks you can make with this simple utility, and the developer is very generous to give it away. I downloaded a later version like the developer suggested and Aqua works now... but I had to take a coupla points off because the program won't quit through normal means. Can't quit via menu or keyboard command --- have to force quit. This means that SafarIcon preferences won't stick, but the program does do what intends to do. (Using eMac w/10.2.6)

version 1 beta 2 of Safari. Safari Icon 1.5 build 11:55 am. Threw away prefs, restarted. Still no Aqua -only brushed. Note: when I choose Safari Default the note to the right says v73 by Apple. Is this comment yours or is it a sniff of the version on my HD?

By mistake, I initially uploaded the wrong version of the SafarIcon archive. I caught it right after I downloaded the archive myself. I immediately corrected the mistake, but the very first few downloaders may have gotten the wrong version. There's nothing seriously wrong with it, except that it won't install the Aqua appearance. So if you were an early bird and want Aqua, please redownload the file (if you don't care about Aqua and always use the Metal appearance just keep the version you have). A note about the greyed icons in practically all themes: It's not a bug, it's a feature. Those icons are from the default Safari theme and they are disabled (greyed out), because the particular theme does not contain the corresponding icon.

1.3.1 is not designed to work with Safari v73. If used, it my cause pages to load improperly or not at all. If you plan to use this with v73, wait until a new version is released that is compatible with v73. Otherwise, a wonderful product. Could have more themes though.

Very nice application. It has good theme choices. Great looking interface. And easy to navigate. I would recommend it if you don't like Safari's current theme. Aqua look feels more like home. I'm giving it a 5 all the way. Don
