Canisbos has released another extension called gDirectLinks, which is a more efficient subset of LinkThing focused solely on the task of removing the hidden redirects from Google's links.

There are many extensions not listed on Apple's page. However, if they're not on the main page, they're not on Apple's site at all. Your cmd-f solutions is the best option if you want to search just the extensions that Apple has listed.

Yes, There is an extension for this called ZoomBySite. Here is a description of the software from it's website: ZoomBySite is a Safari Extension that will automatically zoom each site to the zoom level of your last visit to the site.

If you are using Adium, you can send the current Safari link by clicking on the toolbar item "Insert link to active page in Safari" on the chat window with a contact. If you need to send it directly from Safari, you may need to create an automator action or applescript service.

There is now a Safari extension for Safari 5.1 called Safari Keyword Search by Arne Martin Auerlie. It uses new API calls in 5.1 to reproduce all the functionality of Keywurl without the need for a SIMBL hack! It is still an early version, so the interface is still a little rough, but it works wonderfully. Get it here: ...

It's primarily a matter of parsing the output of defaults read ~/Library/Safari/Extensions/extensions and formatting it in a user-friendly way. The result actually answers both of your questions: defaults read ~/Library/Safari/Extensions/extensions | awk ' /Bundle Directory/ { split($0, t, /\"/); sub(".safariextension", "", t[4]); sub("-1", "", ...

Try SafariKeywordSearch. It allows you to set up custom searches triggered by keywords preceding searches. For example, I have it set so that goto Ask Different uses Google's "I'm Feeling Lucky" to send me to the first Google result for "Ask Different". There's a good set of built-in defaults, and it's pretty easy to add almost any site-specific search out ...

It's not something you can do out-of-the-box, but there are ways to hack around that. This article will give details: http://www.andrewsavory.com/blog/2012/2423 Essentially, the trick is to create a series of scripts and use something like FastScripts (or something like Alfred or LaunchBar) to run the scripts.

As far as I know, there's no way to do that in Safari or Chrome, but in Firefox you can select ranges of cells by holding option and command. You could also copy the whole table and paste it to a spreadsheet application or use something like pbpaste | cut -d $'\t' -f3. But it might not work if there are cells that contain br elements or rows that start ...

So to summarize: History — Reopen All Windows from Last Session or History — Reopen Last Closed Window SafariRestore, Sessions or SaveTabs Glims or Saft Bookmarks — Add Bookmark for These ␣ Tabs... In Lion there's Safari — Quit and Keep Windows (⌥⌘Q)

Safari will use the language(s) that you have installed when you installed you operating system and it will try to automatically determine the language you’re typing in (provided a dictionary exists). Since you’ve mentioned Safari, I assume you are having a lot of red underlines when typing in forms in Italian. Make sure you have Italian in your system (do ...

bmike's comment prodded me into actually, y'know, reading the manual, which led me to find that the whitelists are in fact substring matches. Therefore these settings work: I had to find the /v/ URL by looking at the source of a page with a YouTube embedding.

One solution is to use Google docs — unless you hate Google :) Install the NinjaKit extension so that Safari will be able to use GreaseMonley scripts Install the Google Docs Viewer script from userscripts.org Now Safari will show a small icon next to Office documents that redirects to Google for online viewing Incidentally, NinjaKit is a great extension ...

This is spam, introduced by an extension, through superfish.com. AdBlock is not the cause! AdBlock blocks the injected ad, so the extension inserts the text equivalent. Disabling AdBlock will remove the text, because it allows the original injection to take place, and will decrease page load time as the secondary text injection is no longer required. ...

Yes, all Safari extensions run equally on Windows and Mac OS, so you do not need to look for platform-specific versions. All Safari extensions (that use the official extension API) are required to be written in pure Javascript, so they will work on all platforms.

The Quickstyle Safari Extension has served this purpose well for me. In particular it allows changing only the font size or virtually any other very detailed change. Click the toolbar icon (or use the keyboard shortcut) and select the element on the page that you'd like to apply changes to (or any element) to bring up the editor pre-filled with a rule that ...

I've tried to figure this out myself, and haven't yet come up with a way to load safari-resource:/Reader.html programmatically. If necessary, I fall back to Readability, the 3rd-party Safari add-on Apple used as their basis for Reader. Combined with Safari Stand, I can modify the appearance of pages when they load.

I know what you want because I had that in Opera a long time ago, but then I switched to Mac full time and dropped Opera. Safari lacks in that aspect. I don’t know if there’s a specific extension for that, but you might want to take a look at tools like LaunchBar ($$) or Quicksilver (Free). I use Launchbar and I type ‘goo’ and then whatever I want to ...

May I suggest, the free extension, Sessions. It restores last session and even saves sessions for later retrieval. It's stable with useful features like search, export, remove duplicates, micro-management, KB shortcuts & startup behavior settings.

Disable the extension. Run Safari for an hour (normal use) and note the kind of cpu/memory usages you get from it (using activity monitor or top). Enable the extension. Repeat.
