Safari contextual menu enhancement.

What is Safari Extender for Mac

Safari Extender adds functionality to Safari in the form of a contextual menu item. It can re-arrange the order of the Tabs, Save or Load a Tab Set, Print a page with the address, date and time or compose an email with the current Web address in your browser.

It can also temporarily turn images off, which helps when you have a lot of browsing to do in a short time. After you found what you need you can then turn graphics back on easily.

Other convenient functions in the contextual menu allow you to quickly go back or forward in a page, reload the page and increase or reduce the text size. Mail the selected text or tabs. Search for selected text in Google, Yahoo, MSN or Wikipedia. More features will appear with further development.

To open the "contextual menu" in Safari, hold down the control key while you click the mouse in a Web page. Note that if you just installed Safari Extender you may need to quit and re-run Safari before the Safari Extender menu shows up.

What's new in Safari Extender

Version 1.6.6:
  • Try and avoid a crash for some people upon startup.
  • Fixed 3 javascript commands related to displaying dialog boxes.
  • Removed a message promoting extender at the bottom of emails.
  • Added a delay of 1 minute before we start auto-saving sets, because some people have slow loading home pages.

No news has been posted by the developer for many months. Is Safari Extender a deaend app, never to be updated for Leopard?

Installed program and immediately had problems with Safari crashing regularly. Decided not to purchase and now can't find way to remove it from Safari menus. Still getting 15 day trial expiration notices. Emailed Author with no reponse. Anyone help with removing this software?

PROGRAMHAPPY, Safari Extender and Saft are not quite compatible sometimes. I know that you run Saft but the two of them together is cause for trouble sometimes as they both try to do some of the same things (in different ways). As for only 3 context menus, well there are actually a lot more and the screen shot is outdated. Somethings are actually quite complicated. Note: Any registered user who downloaded version 1.6.2 please get version 1.6.4 thank you. Ricardo Batista (sup@batista.org)

Every time a new version gets released, I install it. Each new version crashes Safari almost instantly, and 1.6.2 is no different. As soon as I uninstall it, Safari is perfectly fine again. Is this not something that should have been fixed LONG ago?

Safari Extender was working fine with Panther - no longer with Tiger, it seems. I have been on Tiger for two months, never any major problem with Safari. But since I reinstalled Safari Extender (which I had not installed after making a clean install of Tiger), I experience problem after problem: Safari quits again and again, URL, date, page, do no longer show if I want to print without using Safari Extender. I am considering uninstalling Safari Extender. There is absolutely no doubt the problems are caused by Safari Extender, since trouble began the very time I relaunched Safari after installing Safari Extender. Too bad! It used to be a nice tool...

Wow, I love this little program. It fills in gaps to make Safari a functional browser. Being able to mail URL's and selected text, turning cookies on and off, moving tabs around. I think $10 isn't much for something useful. Maybe I'm new and it's "shareware inflation," but until Safari's updated to meet these basic functions, I'll be glad to have programs like this. I also do recommend Saft and SafariSorter for reloading the windows you had open when you quit, and sorting your bookmarks alphabetically (more basic functions I wish Safari would hurry up and add.) Anyway, I like the way S Extender adds basic stuff easily. "It would annoy me if it was gone." Best kind of positive review. peace b

So far so good. $10, big freakin whoopty. I'm full time college student and I've bought Saft, Pithhelmet, & Safari Extender. I haven't found their equals in the freeware world and IMHO Safari is better than IE to begin with. Safari Extender does just what its name says. The program works dandily but maybe the licensing needs retooling. Oh well, Just freakin buy it if you have $10.

" i don't use safari simply because i think it's ridiculous i have to move my mouse all the way up to the top just to go back a page. " How hard is it to use shortcuts??? "You would be better off getting Saft. Does the same thing and much more." Yes unfortunately, and if I'm right, some things are missing in Saft: Image on/off, cookies on/off A lot of things that Saft has and not SE can be found for free too: Shortcuts with Sogudi, Url launch with IceCoffe (and in all apps) Saft is much more worth the 10$ though. "I wish I coulf find out how to uninstall this program. I have emailed them twice, but not response. Any ideas. " Just make a search for Safari extender before mailing the dev! You'll find: ~/Library/Contextual Menu Items/Safari Extender.plugin (just trash it) And even: ~/Library/Logs/Uninstall Safari Extender.app (just 2X clic) "I haven't used it much, so I can't say anything about it, other than it duplicates most of the things I'm already doing with my mouse. Not very useful." Not using your mouse is the all point! And you can't save a tab set with your mouse! SE can be useful, but I agree it's a bit expensive...

heck, for the back/forward option alone i'll pay $10. i don't use safari simply because i think it's ridiculous i have to move my mouse all the way up to the top just to go back a page. yeah, apple, when i'm browsing viewing source, printing or saving page as really is high on my needs. with this i might start using safari full time but camino has been my browser of choice for this reason alone. an incredible waste of time not to have back/forward in the contextual menu. good job extender people!

$10... is it April Fools yet? Would be monetarily worth it for $2 or $3. Take a look around and see what Panic, Chaotic, or Unsanity do for their money. This isn't close.

I would like to publicly thank the author of this program for his invaluable support and willingness in solving an issue I experienced with my registration. Ricardo even offered to make me a special edition of the program if the problem persisted! Thanks to his interest and perseverance we could finally solve this issue and make the program run on my computer. Regarding the functionality of Safari Extender I should say that for people like me who still use a slow dial up modem the "hide image" function speeds up downloading pages noticeably and is a real manna from heaven. Add to this the Tabs functions and you come up with a nifty utility you can't do without. Fariborz Amirshahi - Verona (Italy)

$5 maybe. $10 is too much for this functionality. good idea, but I'll pass unless the price comes down.
