You Need to Increase the Speed of Safari by Enabling Extensions
Safari has been redesigned in many ways in iOS 15 and iPadOS 15. There is a new tab bar , a new start page, and support for Safari extensions. Browser extensions are a huge part of the desktop browser experience, but they are much less common on mobile platforms. The Safari extension ecosystem on Mac is nowhere near as good as Google Chrome or Firefox, but with the introduction of this feature on the iPhone and iPad, the popularity of these add-ons on mobile devices could be overwhelming.
After all, iOS and iPadOS are some of the most popular mobile platforms in the world, and since they are all preloaded with Safari, there is a huge market for developers to take advantage of. Let’s take a look at how to install and enable Safari extensions on iPhone or iPad so you can start making the most of some of the great add-ons available right now.
