So there you are, trolling through the listings at fanfiction.net. Everything would be just fine, some nice new stories, but there’s this obnoxius character you just can’t stand paired with your personal favourite character. It burns your eyes, yes it does!
Fear not. This extension for Safari will hide any and every story from your eyes, if the hated character shows up in the pairing.
Download and install Block Fanfic Characters to avoid brain bleach and eye-gouging.
If you put your mental health at risk by reading fanfic, I imagine this will come in handy.
Notifier was broken for a bit after Tumblr changed they way they handle new post notifications. I’m happy to report it’s now back up and running. If you have Safari and love getting notified when new content appears in your Dashboard, grab it! You don’t even need to enter your credentials anymore.
ReCloudApp is a simple redesign of the my.cl.ly interface (for CloudApp available at getcloudapp.com). This extension is based on a design by Fares Farhan that was first posted to dribbble.com. All props to Fares for a great design.
Sweet, but only applied to the main page. Click on Account and you’re back to the normal Cloudapp design.
Make “Navigation Bar” static: Option to make the Tagged menu bar fixed at top.
Use “Browse Bar” as a dock: If you use “Browse” to search, this option moves the browser at bottom-right, it’s also auto hidding like a dock.
Move “Footer” to bottom in Home: Moves the page footer to the bottom only on Home page.
Use arrows as navigation keys: Option to browse photos using the arrow keys: left arrow and right arrow. Works on the old “Photo gallery” and “Browser”, not needed in the new “Preview photos”.
Skins: There are times when the background color and text doesn’t contrast, the extension offers an option to change “Skins” globally, the choices are: default skin, 4 skin designs, and of course the option to not replace it.
Boxes: Option to hide/show several boxes on profiles.
It also fixes the “Change Skin” module in Safari if you use AdBlock.
Snipe is a Safari and Chrome extension that allows you to quickly sift through the sea of open tabs you accumulate throughout the day. Simply invoke the keyboard shortcut and up pops a Quicksilver-like input field allowing you to search through your open tabs and select one, without ever leaving your keyboard.
This is extremely clever. The search is fuzzy, too, so you don’t have to get the title or subject exactly right. If you wind up with lots of tabs, you want this.
Does the vulgar “Oops! You haven’t given 37 Signals quite enough money yet!!!” yellow sticky on your Basecamp dashboard annoy you as much as it annoys me? I’ve created a little Safari extension that removes their vulgarity and restores some semblance of order to your dashboard. It loads a little bit of CSS that makes their used car salesman nonsense invisible, so you can concentrate on your work.
Safari Extensions recommends Basecamp and also encourages users to stay current on their payments so they don’t need this extension. The views expressed in the above description are not those of Safari Extensions.
Many of us love Slashdot.org and its soothing green color. Tragically, a recent redesign has left the amount of green at crisis levels. Fear not, geeks: Soothing Green Light, a free Safari extension, restores the green color to a degree beyond what we’ve ever seen! The Slashdot homepage and story pages are stylishly recolored to give you more of your favorite green.
Enjoy Slashdot in all its green glory without sacrificing legibility or function.
If you have ever accidentally closed a tab containing form information, or loading a video, this is the extension for you! Discretely distinguishing locked from unlocked tabs, TabLock notifies you if you try to close a locked tab, giving you the option to keep it open.
This extension allows posting the shortened url to several services like Twitter or delicious, and also enables to save the original url in the great service provided by our friends of Blogmarks, a social bookmarking platform.
Moreover, this extension has been open-sourced, and is available on GitHub. Feel free to contribute!

Ticker Tool is a Safari extension for stock quotes and more:
Stock quotes from Google Finance
Conference call transcripts from Seeking Alpha
S.E.C. filings from sec.gov
Psst! Ticker Tool displays results in the active tab. You can display results in a new tab by holding down the Command key when you submit your query. You can also set Ticker Tool to always open results in a new tab via the settings panel in Safari > Preferences… > Extensions > Ticker Tool.
Post to Twitter is a Safari 5+ extension for Mac users. This extension, coupled with Twitter for Mac, makes your Twitter experience on the Mac a whole lot better.
What Post to Twitter does: - Installs a toolbar icon in the Safari browser, and once clicked on, you can post to twitter the current page you are on with a title and link. - Allows you to post to twitter the current page with a title and link by right clicking anywhere on the page and clicking on “Post page to twitter.” - Allows you to post to twitter a selected text that points to a link by right clicking on the selected text/link and clicking on “Post link to twitter.”
If you’re a user of Instapaper, you might miss the auto-archive feature they used to have. It would automatically archive an article when you clicked on it to read it. At the time that they removed the feature, I created FIFO Links, which uses HTML5 storage to accomplish the same thing. The catch with FIFO Links is that it didn’t provide shared storage; it only worked in one browser.
Recently, I decided that I should give Instapaper another shot (driven mostly by support for Instapaper in Reeder, the excellent RSS app for iPad). So as a result, I created a Safari extension that revives Instapaper’s auto-archive feature.
After Google Reader Styles, which even is mentioned on Apple’s Extension Gallery, I’ve finished my second Safari Extension today. It’s called Facebook Chat Sound Changer and changes the annoying new alert sound of the Facebook Chat to the old and familiar “pop” sound. Just download, install and activate the extension and you’re done! The old chat alert will be automatically replaced with the old one. If you want to revert to the new alert, just deactivate the extension.
I have come here to redeem myself with another text replacement extension (the easiest ones to make). The last one I made was called ChalkItUp, and we can both agree it was pretty horrible. I liked it at the time, but looking back, that font is so ugly.
Helvetica Neue is a great adaptation to the incredibly popular Helvetica typeface, so why not make it default on every site? Well, like my previous safari extension, ChalkItUp (Which I have now “killed with fire,” as was recommended by the author of Safari Extensions. Since Helvetic Neue is an adaptation of Helvetica, I figured I would do an adaptation of HelveticaTheWorld.
SSL Everywhere is a Safari web browser extension to force SSL encryption for many of today’s popular websites. It was originally designed to protect against session-hijacking attacks initiated by Firesheep when using an open public WiFi connection like those found in coffee shops and airports.
Due to limitations placed on Safari extensions, SSL Everywhere will not completely protect you from session-hijacking attacks. However, it does enhance security by automatically redirecting you to secure versions of many websites and rewriting insecure links to their SSL-encrypted equivalents. If you must use Safari to access popular websites when connected to an open WiFi network, you’re probably better off doing it with SSL Everywhere.
The authors don’t currently offer a pre-built version of the extension for easy installation, stating that they don’t want people to casually install it and forget that it’s not secure for all websites. However, the code is open source and is available for download and manual installation.
If you decide to build this yourself, definitely read the developer’s disclaimer/explanation first. In fact, if you’re wondering why there’s no binary to download, you should probably read it too. And consider reading up on the session hijacking tool Firesheep, the reason for this particular season. It may come as a huge surprise—although I sincerely hope it doesn’t—but your information is often not safe on the internet.
The G-bookmarks extension for Apple Safari offers a great way to access the Google Bookmarks right in an active tab. You find your bookmarks quickly by selecting one or several labels. G-bookmarks tells you labels crossing as you select them with a blue color highlighting. The extension remembers your last choice.
I would like to sincerely apologise for Safari Extensions’s recent downtime. As you probably know, Tumblr recently experienced (and continues to experience) some severe issues; since this is a Tumblr blog, Safari Extensions went right down with them.
Now that Tumblr is back on form—or at least, hopefully getting that way—we’ll be able to catch up on some delayed posts and post new extensions as they’re submitted.
Factotum is a “search assistant” for Safari. It opens a small window next to your active Safari window and loads a search page in it. So far, that’s nothing you couldn’t do by yourself. The unique feature of Factotum is that when you click an offsite link in the little search window, the link opens in your main window—not the search window.
To open Factotum’s window, just click the Factotum button on Safari’s toolbar. If you select some text in the current window first, Factotum will immediately perform a search on that text in your default search engine. If not, it will open your default search engine’s home page.
This is a little Safari extension that lets you delete (“nuke”) any element on a web page quickly and easily. Deletions are only temporary; if you reload the page, the deleted elements will be back. It’s really only useful for removing annoying elements on pages that you visit once, or once in a great while.
To use: Point at the thing you want to remove, hold the mouse button down, press D, and release the mouse button. You can keep pressing D while the mouse button is down to remove ancestors one after another; press E to undo deletions one at a time; or press R to undo all deletions.
LinkThing is a Safari extension that enhances your control over how links on web pages are opened.
Choose where to open new tabs when Command-clicking links: To the left of the current tab, to the right of the current tab, or at the end of the tab bar (the normal behavior).
Have Safari open all links on a specific site in new tabs by default (when you click them normally). You can apply this to all links on a site or just offsite links. When this is in effect, Command-clicking opens a link in the current tab.
Lightweight “pseudo status bar” option. Reveals the link URL in a small bar when you move the mouse over a link. You can hide Safari’s status bar to save space without losing the ability to peek at link URLs.
AllPagesZoom lets you easily set one zoom level for all websites, and have it remembered. By default AllPagesZoom overrides the shortcuts for page zooming on Mac, this can be changed in the preferences.
Rightsizer is for myopic fussy people—like me. It’s basically a better replacement for the “zoom text only” feature of Safari. Unlike Safari’s built-in feature, Rightsizer lets you zoom text in specific parts of a web page instead of all the text on a page. More precisely, it lets you zoom specific kinds of text on a page. And it can remember your font size settings for a web site and reapply them the next time you visit that site, if the page has the same kinds of text. You use modified right-clicks to tell the extension what to zoom—hence the name “Rightsizer”.
Facebook recently made the text of people’s friends’ updates quite tiny. It is incredibly hard for both the young and the old to read friends’ feed now without being frustrated. readableWall solves this by enlarging only the text Facebook shrunk. Rest of the page stays in perfect order with absolutely no distortion. No more clumsy resizing of pages either!
