Among the slew of announcements during this week’s 2021 Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple said that extensions are coming to Safari browsers on mobile devices and tablets. The addition of extensions will allow users to customize their mobile browsing experience by adding password fillers, text translators, and other convenient apps.
Safari will be the first mobile browser to offer extensions, beating out other browsers like Google Chrome. Right now, you can only download separate apps that act as extensions or use the few built-in ones like Safari’s popup blocker and Reader View, but this will be the first time extensions are built into a mobile browser.
The addition of mobile extensions means users will be able to use popular Safari extensions like Adblock Plus, HoverSee, WasteNoTime, Honey codes, and more.
