My Favorite Safari 5 Extensions

By | December 8, 2010

One of the best features to come with Safari 5 is the addition of Extensions. If you’re unfamiliar with Safari Extensions, they basically add functionality – either to Safari itself, or to specific websites.

Here’s a list of some of my favorite extensions:

  • Lucidica: Restyles and simplifies Google Reader.
  • Pure Reader: Similar to Lucidica, but it gives Reader more of a desktop-app feel.
  • Flickr Original: Right-click on Flickr thumbnails to download the original file.
  • Pure Flickr: Removes clutter from Flickr.com
  • YouTube5: Replaces YouTube’s Flash player with an HTML5 player
  • YouTube Video Downloader: Adds a button to download YouTube videos.
  • TinEye: Right-click on any image to search for that image using TinEye.
  • SaveTabs: Saves all open tabs in the current browser window and allows you to reopen them later.
  • Mail Open Tabs: Creates a new email message containing the addresses of all open tabs.
  • ExifExt: Right-click on any image to view it’s EXIF information.
  • BetterSource: Styles, color-codes, and numbers HTML source code.
  • Facebook Neue: Cleans up Facebook (removes ads, etc…)

There’s a wide variety of Safari Extensions out there. Two good resources for finding them are Apple’s Extensions Gallery, and a Tumblr blog aptly named, Safari Extensions.

If you know of any other resources, or extensions that you find useful, leave a link in the comments.
