    "There are hundreds of Safari extensions and plugins that are targeted at users who have a specific problem or capability they are looking for when they use Safari. The Shut up Extension is one of them that offers users the ability to hide comments by default. This helpful tool allows users to toggle the comments on popular websites. Based on the users preference, the toggle can be set to either hide or reveal reader comments. Set it once and it will remember your preferences each time you visit those websites. It's a free service and is very simple to use. "

    "I love browing with safari, but it's a cruel cruel world online. Theives are always looking to separate you from your money. So one essential extension/plugin I investigated first thing is this one as it helps you generate and "remember" strong and unique passwords for each site. This simple step gives me a much more secure computing environment."

    "The WasteNoTime site was helpful to me. I looked over the webpage of this site, and it now offers a Safari extension of their product. The page gave me some information about the extension's settings and the Time Tracker part of it at the top of the main page. It provides a solution to a safari extension."

    "I looked over the Session webpage for help with my problem of needing a safari extension and plugin. The webpage is easy-to-read and quite concise too. I think Sessions will be useful to me to keep up with all of my information in different tabs when online, and then I can look at information later on when I need it, so Sessions does solve my problem of needing a Safari extension and plugin."

    "Website Opener is a free extension for Chrome and Safari. If you are like me you open the same web pages every day. I added this extension and put in about six web pages. Now, with one click, my day begins and all the websites I need are loaded. Easy to use and so nice to have you will wonder why you didn't do it before."

    "ResizeMe makes it easy to check how a website will look in a different size. Some sites that are mostly mobile only have a hard time becoming full sized desktop sites so having this makes it really easy to read through dense website text."

    "Getting the itunes popup is super annoying on Safari, and I didn't think there was a way to prevent it since its an Apple service and I'm on an Apple computer. The plugin works and the annoying popup is no more."

    "I'll be honest, I sometimes do things that I shouldn't online at work. So, Panic button has saved me more than a few times. It's the best safari extension, hands down. One button press and I instantly close all my tabs and don't have to be raked over the coals by my employer."

    "It's a nice plugin for zooming into things on Safari (i.e. pictures, thumbnails, links to videos, et cetera). That way, you don't have to click links as much!!! It's easy to use too--you just hover the cursor over things & it magnifies them."
