    The extensions may be useful, but it sure is hard to locate them to install when there is no search field on the Safari extensions page. Is there any easier way to locate the Widgets extension, for example?

      It is frustrating, isn’t it? I find the fastest way is to just do a Google search for them. You usually come up with the developer’s home page pretty quickly.

    I found this comment in Apple Support Community:Mar 21, 2011 1:01 AM
    “I installed this extension called “Print Plus” from apple.com Safari extension page and noticed that when I was browsing amazon.com, I started getting popups for something called “Best Price” – which showed a balloon window with a link to another site.” Gary did you have the same experience, the comment goes on to advise to avoid extensions by “slice factory”. Thoughts?

      They mention this right on their site:
      http://www.slicefactory.com/browser-extensions/print-plus/278
      It says:
      Print Plus includes The Best Price, our revolutionary price comparison engine. It can be deactivated should you really not want to get notified of better offers while browsing a shopping site
      So I guess just turn that part of the extension off.

    I installed the widget extension for the weather and time.. Now with Lion, when I do the full-screen mode it disappears. How do I keep the extension with the full-screen mode. Thank you.

      So, different extension than the default one? Perhaps it simple isn’t compatible with Lion.

        It is the widget extension you showed in the video. When I put Safari on full screen it disappears.

          8 years ago

          Ah, I see. The developer hopefully will update it soon to work with Full Screen Mode.
