Make the most of Safari with these extensions


Safari is the default browser that Apple offers on its devices, both in iOS and macOS and really works great. If we compare it with the competition, like Chrome or Firefox , we find that it is much superior in performance. So, according to Apple , we can:
  • Better autonomy.  2 hours of browsing and 4 hours of video playback on Netflix extras compared to Firefox or Chrome.
  • Faster.  Web applications, JavaScript performance and animations work much faster than the competition.
  • Security.  Thanks to a series of benefits you can navigate more safely.
With these advantages offered by Apple and following this series of tips to optimize it , you will get one of the best browsers on the market. Even so, Apple offers us a series of extensions that will further enhance it .

Extensions for Safari, boosting navigation

In this site you can review all available extensions , below we will see some of the most outstanding.

Translator

In many occasions we access sites that are not in our language , with this extension we will be able to translate any site to our language using the Google translator or Microsoft . 
Once installed the extension, when accessing a site that is not in our language, just below the navigation bar we will see a menu that offers us to translate the site into our language .

TrafficLight

Thanks to this extension, we can surf more safely . Once installed, we will be able to navigate normally and we will see an icon that will show us a series of alerts , indicating if the site that we are visiting makes some follow up of our navigation or if it is a safe site or not.

Custom Quest

With this extension, performing searches will be a very simple task. Custom Quest gives us shortcuts when searching . 
For example, if we want to search for the word MacBook in Amazon, in the navigation bar we write "m macbook" and the extension will be in charge of searching for that word in the Amazon web , thus showing the final result. 
Each of the shortcuts is set up, so we can create custom searches easily.

Pied PíPr

This extension you will not find on the Apple page, since it is an independent development. What you will get with Pied PiPr s visualize videos in Picture in Picture mode (as in the iPad Pro). This extension is compatible with Netflix and YouTube . 
Once installed, you will see in the options bar of YouTube videos a new icon that will allow you to play the video in a floating window , so you can enjoy it while continuing to browse other sites or doing other tasks.
