    Hi all - I just switched to Mac and have a quick question. Does Safari support traditional browser toolbars like Google toolbar? If not, is there limited support for add-ons like Firefox has? Thanks.

    There aren't as many add-ons or plug-ins. There is a Google search box built in though. If you tell us specifically what else you're after, we might be able to point you in the right direction. :)

    Guys - thanks for the quick replies! I am a developer and as such am really just trying to get a feel for what Safari has to offer. I want to try to write a "toolbar" but was told that Safari doesn't support them. But now that I see some of the screenshots on, it seems that it would support at least some kind of hybrid app.

    One question would be, what are the limitations of Safari extensions compared to FF extensions? Isn't the concept the same for both (the browser GUI is part of the DOM that you can manipulate)?
