Now that iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 are moving the ability to have Safari extensions on iPhone and iPad, it doesn’t hurt to see what extensions are ready to install and test how this new feature works. Let’s go with a list of the most interesting extensions we’ve seen in the App Store.
Browser extensions are now mobile too
- StartPage.ai is for those people who work with dozens of tabs open constantly and the tab groups feature included in the new versions of the systems does not convince them. The extension shows you the tabs you have opened most recently, leaving the rest in the background so that you don’t lose focus. You can download it for free.
- Noir is perfect for those who want a dark theme across the web. The extension modifies the appearance of those pages that do not have a dark theme and adapts them, to avoid a white background that dazzles us. You can download it for $2,99 on the App Store.
- Amplosion is an extension that removes all links to websites in AMP, the format created by Google, so you do not have to see it even if you use Google very frequently. If you are a web developer, you may be interested in downloading it for $$3.99 on the App Store.
- Cardpointers is ideal for anyone who shops online. This little tool searches for discount codes and promotions from the website you have open, to facilitate any savings you can apply to the final purchase invoice. The download is free, but to enjoy all the features you need to subscribe to a payment plan through integrated purchase.
- 1Password now integrates like a glove through a Safari extension, making your user experience more seamless with the system. Access the entire database of passwords and keys of this service directly from the browser. The 1Password download is tied to a $35.88 annual payment plan.
- Web Inspector brings something to the mobile version of Safari that it doesn’t have: a web inspector so that developers can check everything that happens on their pages in detail. Best of all, this extension is completely free to download.
- PrettyWeb is the extension that lets you move away from Safari’s new tab page and invites you to create your alternative, with the photos and elements you want. The download is free, although for certain customization elements you have to pay an integrated purchase of $1,16.
- We finish with Simple Refresh, an extension that allows us to reload all Safari tabs at the same time and even set an automatic reload period of up to 10 minutes. Perfect if you want to constantly check the availability of the iPhone 13, for example.
