Resizer adds a single button to your Safari toolbar. The extension has 10 user configurable window settings (that can be named and enabled/disabled) and clicking the toolbar button will cycle through them in order. Alternatively the toolbar button can be used to show/hide the Resizer Bar giving easy access to your window settings. You can also select any of your enabled settings directly from the contextual menu or via keyboard shortcuts using the option key (⌥1 through ⌥0).

Why? Using a bookmarklet to resize a Safari browser window with more than one tab doesn't seem to

Ugh... found one glaring flaw. You can't change the keyboard shortcuts that conflict with some keyboard characters. For instance, if I make a bullet with option-8 like this "•" it causes my screen to change size.

I don't have Window Setting 8 enabled or anything and I tried clearing everything out of that settings but then it just shrinks the window to the size of a postage stamp.

So my crappy workaround is to make Window Setting 8 settings the same as Window Setting 1 so it keep my window the same size as I normally have at setting 1 - but that stinks if I want to keep my window where it's at if I've moved it or resized it for any reason.

This extension needs more options for the modifier keys. Like add another checkmark so you can use a combo of option-shift-8 or something.

I love this. I used to just use javascript to position my Safari windows with bookmarklets I made, but those stopped working in windows with multiple tabs open a long time ago after some Safari updates.

Now I just use Resizer and it works no matter how many tabs are open because it's an extension which is great.

This is also better than the competition because it allow me to position the windows where I want them along with the size. I also really enjoy how there's options to customize various features to make it work the way I want it to.

So glad someone really smart made something like this.

Color me clueless if you must; but since Safari can quickly be resized manually, why do I need a complicated extension like Resizer? Especially since I still need those two extra buttons anyway to adjust the font size.

Web Designers need to test their output with specific window sizes for example.

Sorry about the triple posting. MU's error message after all my post attempts implied that there were bugs that prevented completion.

Why? Using a bookmarklet to resize a Safari browser window with more than one tab doesn't seem to work very well but a Safari extension can solve this problem. If you're like me then you've probably installed a bunch of Safari extensions and now have several new toolbar buttons. I wanted to keep the clutter to a minimum with just a single toolbar button that can switch between a number of window sizes.
