I can't find any extension that allows me to switch between open tabs every x seconds..... Before I 'dive' into extension development I have to ask....:

  • Is there a limitation in Safari's extensions system which would block the development of an auto tab switcher?

This should be possible. The extension API gives you access to the SafariBrowserTab class, which allows you to activate a specific tab in a specific window. So adding an extension toolbar button that started/stopped the looped switching should be pretty straightforward.

  • Thnx. Turns out it was very straightforward indeed. Took me a couple of hours to get what I need. Feb 11, 2017 at 18:24
