How to Install And Manage Safari Extensions

Safari has much less extensions than, say, Chrome or Firefox, but there’s some really useful extensions, and this article will teach you how to install them easily.

How to find and install extensions

First, open up a page with the list of available extensions. Using the main menu, click Safari > Safari Extensions

Browse through the gallery and choose the extension you want to install. The extension installation is easy as clicking on a Install now button.

After that, you will see the status of the extension: first “Being installed,” then “Installed.” After that, you will be able to manage the extension via Preferences window (more on this in the next section).

If applicable, right after the installation the extension will open a new page automatically for you to log in or sign up – if it’s a service like Pocket, for example.

On the main Safari toolbar, you will see a new button for the extension you just installed.
