Announcing 3 new extensions for the Safari web browser!
1) Search All.
This extension installs a new toolbar to your browser from where you can search up to 15 sites simultaneously from 1 search box. By default the extension comes configured to search the following sites:
- Google Images
Each site can be searched individually or, by clicking on the “Search All” button, you can search all at once.
The extension is also highly configurable: want to search stackoverflow.com?* Open the Search All preferences and add it to the list! You can also control exactly which sites to include in the “Search All” results.
* in this case, the site url would be: stackoverflow.com & the query string would be: /search?q=
This is a fairly simple extension. You may have noticed that the standard Safari text rendering tends to result in ‘fat’ looking text. This is especially noticeable when the text is light on a dark background. In some cases it can be difficult to distinguish between bold and normal font weights.
The Typesetter extension resolves this problem by enabling -webkit-font-smoothing. As well as improving the font rendering, the Typesetter extension also enables advanced typographic features such as ligatures.
3) Web Radio.
This extension adds a toolbar for accessing your favourite internet radio stations. The ‘radio’ can hold up to 5 stations which cab be configured by entering the URL and station name in to the preferences panel. The rest is pretty intuitive.
‘Out of the box’ it comes pre-configured to the following stations:
- Planet Rock
- Absolute Classic Rock
- Jazz FM
- Classic FM
- BBC World Service
And finally – I’ve moved all my Safari Extensions to a sub-domain so here’s the place to get them: http://safariextensions.midwinter.dg.com/
