Safari toolbar button for window configuration.


Developer website: Six Foot 1

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 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.

What's New

Version 0.4:
  • Added new icons - much prettier now!
  • Added buttons for each setting to the Resizer Bar.
  • Added option to configure the toolbar button - it can either cycle through your enabled window settings or show/hide the Resizer Bar (default).
  • Added option to automatically close the Resizer Bar after clicking one of the buttons (off by default).
  • Added keyboard shortcuts for each setting - hit Option-1 (⌥1 for setting 1) through Option-0 (⌥0 for setting 10) to resize your window via the keyboard (thanks go to Serge Sander for showing me how). Note: you may need to restart Safari before this will work.
  • Added option to enable/disable keyboard shortcuts (on by default).
  • Changed some of the default settings.
  • Removed the special characters acting as mini icons in each setting name.
  • Fixed the update manifest so automatic updating should actually work now.
  • Massaged the code again.


  • Mac OS X 10.5 or later
  • Safari 5.01 or higher with support for extensions.
