About

what is Pimp My Safari?

It was started as a reaction to the sites cataloguing Firefox extensions. Many excellent plugins for Safari have been developed, but because Safari doesn’t have an official ‘extension architecture’, many don’t know of these extensions.

what makes it into Pimp My Safari?

There are a lot of excellent extensions, plugins, and apps to enhance Safari, but equally there are some awful ones too. There are also many apps that do single tasks (such as enable the debug menu) that I haven’t considered worthwhile. The emphasis is on plugins that work within Safari, but occasionally I have included apps that I feel are essential. I don’t have a rating system here, as I only include those that are decent enough to start with.

I filter out a lot of the junk out there. If I think its not worth the cost, too limited in its functionality, no longer being developed or just plain useless, I don’t include it.

I consider the 3 essential extensions are Saft, PithHelmet and Stand.

why ‘Pimp My Safari’?

The idea came from an MTV series on car customization called ‘Pimp my Ride’.
