This week’s mac techmail is Enhance Safari with Glims plug-in which discusses the free Glims plugin for Safari. This plugin adds a bunch of features that should have been in Safari to begin with as far as I’m concerned: automatic re-opening of tabs when you start Safari, auto-closing the download window… it also adds some extras for searching; with Glims you can customize your search box to build pre-defined queries of other sites or create shortcuts to sites, etc. I used to use Saft for this, but every time there is a new version of Safari, it seems like Saft trails a few days holding you back from upgrading (or losing the functionality it provides), and Saft isn’t free. Glims is free and provides almost all of the functionality that Saft does. Definitely a worth-while addon for the Safari browser.
