Safari extension highlight: SnapBack and Reload


With the addition of the Safari Extensions Gallery to Apple's website, TUAW will be highlighting extensions that we think are special, useful, or just plain fun.

Today we're highlighting two extensions that restore functionality to Safari that's been lost: the reload button and the snapback arrow.

Reload Button is a Safari extension that puts a big, healthy reload button back into your toolbar. Safari 5 moved it inside the address bar, and many users (myself included) liked it better in the toolbar.

SnapBack adds a button to your toolbar that emulates the old snapback function. It'll let you jump back to the first page in a tab or window's browsing history, or let you designate which page should be the snapback point. Give it a click to jump back, or right-click to bring up a helpful contextual menu.

If you aren't an old fuddy-duddy like me who fears "the new ways," you probably won't try these out. But the rest of us will be happy to. Now get off my lawn.
