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

Doesn't work with Leopard. Any chance this will be updated?

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As for only 3 context menus, well there are actually a lot more and the screen shot is outdated.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.

Ten bucks for 3 contextual menus? You've got to be kidding.

Version 1.6 comes with great features:
- copy selection, titel and web-address
- mail selection and web-address
great value if you do a lot of reporting from websites

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.

Firefox is overhyped, especially on a Mac.

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.

zj! Are you kidding me? You can get much more for 10 bucks. And this program really sucks. It works but is not worth it.

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?

To uninstall:

As per the Read Me included with the installer -

If you like to uninstall the software, quit Safari, then look in your local Library/Contextual Menu Items folder and trash Safari Extender.plugin

ProgramHappy had trouble on 08 Dec 2006
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?

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.
