Long Description

This application changes the behavior of standard "zoom" button in the Safari web browser. Default behavior of this button is to modify window dimensions basing on the size of content page. It can be useful for some applications like "Finder" or "Pages", but many people consider such behavior to be annoying when applied to "Safari". Most often you click this button to see the whole page content and the best representation in this case is screen-wide window size, like in FireFox. After SafariZoom installation, Safari would maximize its window size on "zoom" button click. Second click on "zoom" button will cause window to restore its previous size.

You can disable or uninstall this add-on any time your wish from Safari Preferences window.

Works with:

  • Safari: 2 – 5


  • Now, SafariZoom 1.5 is working perfectly for Safari 4.0.5 on MacOS X 10.5.8 PPC. I can highly recommend it.

  • 1.1 works, but 1.4 doesn't. Mac mini PPC, Leopard 10.5.8, Safari 4.0.5.

  • I've searched for exactly this functionality and was very happy to find SafariZoom. The plug-in does exactly what I would expect when clicking the zoom button. Perfect! Unfortunately, after installing it, I had frequent crashes. It seems that SafariZoom has problems with tabbed browsing. The crashes always occured when opening links in a tabbed browser window. I could nail it definitely down to SafariZoom. After uninstalling (what was a little bit tricky, because there is no uninstaller and searching for "SafariZoom" on my HD wasn't successful) the crashes where gone. Putting the plugin back, the crashes were back as well. I'm using Safari 4.0.5 on Mac OS X 10.5.8 I hope there will be an update that fixes this crashes, then it will be my favourite plug-in for Safari!
