[Webinar] Take Control Of Social Publishing Using Browser Extensions

A web browser is probably the only thing that compliments the Internet the most! In fact, web browsers are windows to the Internet world and provides every possible information you'd want to look for. But there is more to these browsers than just the power to surf the internet. Yes, we're talking about Browser Extensions. Extensions provide additional features and integrate services within your browsers. They also allow us to access those features without even opening the respective web page.

For instance, the Grammarly extension integrates spelling and grammar checking services into your web browser without opening the website in the other tab. Whereas the Statusbrew extension adds features like posting content on your social media that you come across while surfing without even switching the tab.

So let's learn how to manage and add extensions in our browser and make the best of them in our daily lives.

During the course of this blog, we'll answer your questions about:

Choose extensions carefully, don't confuse them with apps. Sometimes, Google shows apps as well with the extensions. However, it is a swift and easy process to install an extension. Later, you will see that extension in the address bar of your browser. You can go back to the extensions window if you want to enable or disable it.

Sometimes, applications that you run on your computer can also launch a web or browser extension if you choose to enable it while installing. For example, if you download a file and all of a sudden your browser starts behaving abruptly, that's often because something has been installed unknowingly, and you may or may not have given the permission.

That's one of the reasons why you need to know about extensions on your system and toggle them on or off.

Mac users you need not worry, we have covered you too! Let us see how we can add extensions to Safari browser.

How to add browser extensions in Safari?

  • Navigate Safari -> Safari Extensions.
    It launches the official Apple website for extensions and allows you to install them.
  • Select the extension you want to install and click on the Get/Install button.

Now if you want to manage your extensions in Safari browser, you have to go through a different process as listed below.

How to access or manage extensions in Safari?

  • Select Safari option from the menu bar.
  • Click on Preferences and select the Extensions icon from that window. You can enable and disable extensions from this window.

So regardless of which browser you're working on, the extensions work pretty much the same way. The thing to focus on is which extensions are currently enabled in the browser. Use the desired ones and turn off the ones that you don't use, even if they don't seem to be bothering you because they may be using your system resources. So your computer will run faster if you have less of these enabled.
