Chrome Extensions Can Be Used In Safari Browser With Apple New Tools

Apple is making more upgrades in all of its operating systems and applications. Everything is to bring more users into the platform along with preventing the loss of its users. Moreover, with all the updates they also made some changes in its own in-house browser Safari. The upgrades include faster webpage loading and enhanced privacy configuration. Although, more exciting than all these features is the new WebExtensions API. Through which, Safari browser will support more plugins and extensions if you use Safari as the primary browser.

There are some differences in extensions that we see in browsers like Chrome with Safari. These extensions can be programmed using Javascript, HTML, and CSS. However, converting the extensions into Safari compatible mode is also easy. Apple provides a converter app to convert extensions from Chrome, Firefox, or Edge browsers. Besides, users can find and download new web-based ones through the App Store.

After all, Apple will provide some security precautions before activating some extensions in the browser. Some extensions or plugins will ask for multiple permissions before they run. Moreover, Apple notifies users about risky plugins multiple times before granting permission. Beyond all, you can prevent any extension from working on any websites or active tabs. Along with that you also can decide how long you want to run any extensions in a single day.

All these years, the extension features were too weak in the Safari browser. That lead to the fall in the number of Safari users on a large scale. However, the evolving changes are giving hope to Apple to regain its browser’s popularity.
