Safari install

Note: Apple has stopped supporting “Legacy” extensions completely.  They have done this by choosing to no longer issue Safari Developer signing certificates.  Due to the way Safari securely installs extensions it is impossible for any extension developer to continue supporting Safari 5-11.1.  We have contacted Apple about this issue and they are unwilling to continue issuing Safari Developer signing certificates.  Because we have lots of users that are not using the most recent version of Safari, we will continue to provide the final Options for Safari installer until it’s basic usefulness no longer seems relevant.

We have continued development on a version of Options for Safari 11.1+, but the development is progressing slower than we would like.  We have submitted a version to Apple App Store, but they are convinced we need to use their licensing and subscription infrastructure.  We are currently trying to find a way to make the two subscriptions work together so you can continue to use your Options on any browser on any platform.  January 5, 2020.


If you would still like to install the final version of Options for Safari 5.1 – Safari 11.1:
» Download Options «



Note: Options only works with Safari 5.1 – Safari 11.1.

Note: Safari 7 and greater require you to not have Block cookies and other website data set to Always.

Note: As great a browser as Safari is, all versions before Safari 9 have certain browser limitations and are not as capable at things like blocking ads. Please make sure to upgrade to at least OS X 10.11 and Safari 9 to block ads like Chrome, Firefox, and Opera.


Depending on your settings and your version of Safari, you may need to find and open the Options download in your Downloads folder.

Install: When you see something similar to these:

License: you can subscribe for a license now, or apply for a trial license.

Uninstall and Update: please see the Safari section of the manual.
