Will the web clipper work with Safari?

Operating system


Joplin version


What issue do you have?

I'm a MacOS user dedicated to using the Safari browser. I'm very interested in being able to use this to create notes that include web clips which I can sync through Dropbox to all my Apple devices, but only if I can use the Safari browser. I saw a post about a plugin from 2020, but the post mentioned that there were going to be new add-ons coming from Safari.

Hi @brownelfin, welcome to the forum.

For Mac, check out the Safari App Extension thread for related discussion and a link to the latest extension version.

If that doesn't work, maybe try the Safari extension or conversion instructions included in this thread: Safari Mac OS X web clipper extension 2

For iOS, the Web clipping on iOS thread is the latest discussion, while the Mobile Web Clipper companions thread lists existing workarounds.

I would like to ask a question unrelated to the topic. What could be the reason for wanting to use open-source software like Joplin in a closed-source and quite restrictive browser like Safari?
