Safari Stand

Posted by Tejus Parikh on April 5, 2008

Safari’s really fast. It blows Firefox 2 and my previous favorite, Opera away.  However, I’ve held back from using it as my primary browser because the one thing that bothers me more than slowly loading websites are websites that insist on playing music or showing a video as soon as I load them.  

This was a complete deal-breaker until I rediscovered SafariStand.  SafariStand is a small set of plugins for Safari that includes little features like colorizing html source, a sidebar that shows the thumbnails of all open tabs, and a way to block flash animations from automatically loading.  

It’s mac only, and if I read the broken English right, will be that way for the planned future. If you want your Safari experience to be even better, it’s worth checking out.
