Hey there, Mikah Sargent here! If you're like me, you're always on the lookout for ways to improve your browsing experience on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac. Well, I've got great news for you – Safari extensions are here to save the day! These powerful add-ons can boost your productivity, enhance your privacy, and make browsing the web a breeze.

In the latest episode of iOS Today, my co-host Rosemary Orchard and I explored the world of Safari extensions, and I'm excited to share our top picks with you.

With just a few keystrokes, you can search Amazon, DuckDuckGo, or even our very own right from Safari's address bar. No more navigating to each site individually – Keyword Search streamlines the process and saves you precious time.

- 1Blocker: A content blocker that prioritizes your online privacy. As someone who values my privacy on the web, I appreciate how 1Blocker prevents ads and trackers from loading on pages, not only protecting my information but also potentially speeding up my browsing experience.

- Redirect Web for Safari: An extension that's perfect for anyone who regularly navigates between different versions of the same website. With this tool, you can create custom redirect rules to ensure you always land on the desired version of a site, like instead of It's a simple but incredibly useful extension.

- PayPal Honey: This extension automatically finds and applies coupons and deals while you shop online, and who doesn't love saving money? While it's important to be mindful of privacy concerns, the potential savings make PayPal Honey worth considering.

- Vinegar and Baking Soda: Two extensions that work together to enhance your video watching experience. By replacing native video player controls with iOS's own controls, these extensions offer a more seamless and intuitive way to watch videos on YouTube and other sites.

- Opener: Even though it's not technically a Safari extension, this app is a must-have for anyone who wants more control over which app opens when they click on a link.
