  • TabLinks 3.0

    I haven't been using Safari much for a while, but after Sierra came out I started getting a lot of requests to update my TabLinks extension. I hadn't planned to, but then looked into it and realized it was just a codesigning issue. But you know me, I had to update everything else, too.…

  • Sponsor: MailMate

    MailMate is the most powerful email client available on the Mac market. The thing that always kept me clinging to Apple's Mail was smart mailboxes (pseudo-mailboxes based on search criteria), but MailMate took those to a new level. I've been a happy user for months now.…

  • My favorite New Tab for Chrome

    I've been looking for a decent plugin to add a few features to my New Tab Page in Chrome. I found "the one" recently: Humble New Tab.…

  • Yes, I spend too much time tweaking PopClip

    I made a few changes and additions to my PopClip extensions early this morning. The GitHub repo is current and the project page is updated.…

  • It's a blue period, but with PopClip instead of paint

    I recently put version 1.8 of "Brett's PopClip Extensions" up for download, and added a project page with the latest information. It's become quite a collection, I figured it was time. Here's a rundown of some of the most recent changes.…

  • PopClip hacking

    I've obviously been on a PopClip kick lately. I run a lot of my little scripts through Services, but there are only so many shortcut combinations on a keyboard (and in my memory) and right clicking to run a Service is cumbersome. PopClip streamlines it for me, so I'm exploring...…

  • CopyPLUS for PopClip

    > Update: I somehow completely overlooked that this extension already exists (see Append on the main extensions page.) The differences are minor, though mine does account for some additional (rare) character encoding issues. Nothing you should swap out for if you're already using Append. > > I need to spend more time searching before I decide to solve problems. And sleeping. More sleeping.…

  • Comment extension for PopClip

    I added a new extension to my PopClip collection this morning. It creates comments of various syntax from selected text. It's called, creatively enough, the Comment Extension.…

  • More Markdown for PopClip

    I wrote a few new PopClip extensions over the weekend. There were several features from the Markdown Service Tools that I thought would be really handy to have right after making a mouse selection.…

  • TabLinks 2.0 is live

    Apparently I missed the memo: TabLinks 2.0 was actually approved by Apple in September. I've been sitting on my hands and just recently bothered to write them and ask what was up. Miscommunication, I guess, but it's live in the updater now, so if you have 1.3 installed, it should update to 2.0. If you have automatic updates turned off, just check the updates section at the bottom of your extensions preferences.…

  • TabLinks 2.0

    TabLinks 2.0 is finished, and it's a total rewrite. The changes have been submitted to Apple, and if all goes well, TabLinks will be updated in the Extensions Gallery shortly. Here's an overview of the changes:…

  • gleeBox gets prettier highlights

    Primer: gleeBox is an amazing extension for Safari (and Chrome and Firefox) that gives you keyboard navigation of links, bookmarks, bookmarklets and more. If you haven't tried it out, you should.…

  • Instapaper Beyond microsite

    Due in part to the inclusion of Instapaper Beyond in Apple's Safari Extensions Gallery, I've put together a dedicated "microsite" for Instapaper Beyond. You can check it out at .…

  • Instapaper Beyond in the Safari Extensions Gallery

    I just got word from Apple that Instapaper Beyond is being added to the Safari Extensions Gallery! That's great news, for the most part... it means that I'll have to run all future updates through Apple before releasing them, but I assume that will just be a minor formality in the grand scheme of things.…

  • GReader Instapaper 0.2

    I just pushed a tiny little update to the GReader Instapaper extension. It shortens the default speed at which the notifications disappear, and adds a settings item in preferences so you can adjust it if you want to. I think the 1300ms delay is a pretty good one, it was 5000 before (and everyone complained). All better.…

  • Single-keystroke Instapaper in Google Reader

    This was a quick plugin I put together last night when I got too frustrated to work on my actual jobs. It lets you define a single shortcut key which, after you input your Instapaper username and password, will let you send the currently-selected article in Google Reader straight to Instapaper. It works fine with themes like Helvetireader (Safari extension), and functions in both list view and expanded view.…

  • Instapaper Beyond 1.8.9

    Instapaper Beyond version 1.8.9 is another small release with a couple of usability enhancements. Thanks to everyone who's been submitting ideas and bugs, I'll do my best to keep up!…

  • Instapaper Beyond 1.8.7

    Update: I just pushed out version 1.8.8 with a minor fix for some spacebar-in-forms issues. The download link and auto-update file have already been updated. Thanks to John P for the bug report!…

  • Fixing Gleebox

    If you haven't tried it, gleeBox is an amazing extension. I have it installed in my Firefox and Chrome setups, and I'm more than thrilled that it's finally available for Safari. It lets you do a lot of crazy (and useful) things with keyboard commands on any website. There's a great writeup over at PimpMySafari.com, so I won't go into depth on the wonderful parts. I'll concentrate on the one thing that bugs me about gleeBox: the highlight colors on found and selected elements. They are, in my…

  • Instapaper Beyond: fix for text style controls

    This is a bugfix release of Instapaper Beyond for Safari which brings the version up to 1.8.6. It fixes a few visual glitches, but most importantly it restores the functionality of the text style menu at the top of a read page, allowing you to set and remember the font, size, width and line spacing of your text view.…

  • New Safari Extensions give good source

    A couple of very cool Safari Extensions came down the pipe today, both geared toward web developers and code monkeys. The two of them combined make viewing source in Safari a whole lot better. I love doing web development in Safari, and the Web Inspector pretty well covers the Firebug front for me, but these two extensions are going to make life much easier.…

  • Minor TabLinks update

    I just posted version 1.3 of TabLinks. It doesn't fix all of the things I eventually want to fix, but it does do some rudimentary entity encoding that allows you to actually use HTML tags in the templates. I had said that %t would work as a template, but it didn't. Now it does.…

  • RedirectBuster, another late night Safari Extension

    Okay, this one has a little refining left to go, but it seems to be working pretty flawlessly. I ported most of the code from a greasemonkey script. All I really want to add is a toolbar item that lets you easily turn it on and off, and maybe a whitelist feature.…

  • TabLinks Safari Extension

    TabLinks is a quick experiment, designed to meet my own needs. It needs some work, but it does the trick: it copies the link information for every tab open in Safari, and outputs them as a list, based on a user-defined template. You set up your template in the Extension settings, and use the following variables to define your link style:…

  • Instapaper Beyond Bugs (fixed)

    I've found a few bugs in Instapaper Beyond since releasing the Safari extension this morning. I've updated the extension to version 1.8.3, but I'm not convinced that my update manifest (the automatic update) is working yet. If you're running into issues (the biggest offender being an error when closing the help menu), try downloading the latest version and installing it over the existing version.…

  • Instapaper Beyond for Safari

    Instapaper Beyond is officially available as a Safari 5 extension! For Safari users new to Instapaper Beyond, it's an extension which adds full keyboard navigation and Ajax loading to Instapaper. For example, when the page loads, the first article in the list is highlighted. Using up/down arrows, or j/k, you can navigate forward and backwards. Right arrow or "o" will open an Ajax view of the article from which j/k will continue to navigate articles in text mode.…
