Safari Mac Plugins
There are a lot of us Mac marketers out there (Mac Marketer Defined: people who do internet marketing on an Apple computer). We are a special bunch, because for the longest time we haven’t had access to many of the great tools, plugins, and software that are especially for online marketers. And then came Firefox…
Yet a lot of us don’t necessarily love Firefox or prefer it because honestly – Safari is faster – and in our world, we need to move at the speed of light. There is so much to do in the span of a few hours and the faster our browsers, software, and everything else moves – the more productive we can be.
Then came Safari Extensions
Finally, Apple has seen the light and recognized that if they opened Safari to developers – that a lot of cool and really useful plugins and extensions could be created for their beloved browser. Now you can find a list of cool extensions and plugins for Safari at Apple’s new: Safari Extensions Gallery.
There aren’t hundreds of extensions like Firefox yet, but it is growing and there are a few extensions that I like for online business owners and marketers.
