Adobe Flash Player is a lightweight browser plug-in and rich Internet application runtime that delivers consistent and engaging user experiences, stunning audio/video playback, and exciting gameplay.

If you have a newish Mac and a newish web browser about the only thing you need this for are sites that still use it (namely, HBO and Hulu). Even Pandora now uses HTML5.

Icon Ka-Block! 3.2

A Safari browser extension that blocks an artisanal selection of advertisements and trackers for a faster web.

This extension's goals are modest.
* Block most ads and trackers.
* Never contact a server.
* Never slow down a page.

Some ads will get through this filter, and that's ok. We already have extensions that block every ad that's ever appeared on the web with a completionist zeal that must be admired. Provided we accept the tradeoffs described above, those blockers work great.

This ad filtering code makes zero network connections. The only way for the list of blocked domains to be updated is to release a new version of the extension itself.

The filtering extension has no access to the pages or sites loaded by the browser. No code from this extension even runs while browsing the web. Ka-Block! provides the list of filtered domains to Safari and the browser does the rest, maintaining your privacy.

icon Markster 2.9.2

Markster keeps your internet bookmarks in a central store. There are two reasons you might choose Markster. Either…
a) The internal bookmarking facilities (Bookmarks Bar, Bookmarks Menu, Favorites Bar, etc.) in their web browser(s) are too primitive for you.
b) You use more than one web browser, and prefer to keep all your bookmarks in a separate app, independent of the web browsers, instead of syncing the browsers’ internal bookmarks facilities together. (If you prefer to sync those together, check out Synkmark or BookMacster.)
When Markster users want to visit a bookmark they have previously stored, or add a new bookmark, instead of reaching for the Bookmarks Bar or Bookmarks Menu in the browser, they bring up Markster’s Floating Menu to access Markster directly.
