 These Safari extensions, which work similarly to extensions for Chrome and Firefox, are being phased out in favor of Safari App Extensions, a much more limited type of extension that must be distributed as part of a Mac app. Legacy Safari extensions will no longer work in Safari 13. These Safari extensions, which work similarly to extensions for Chrome and Firefox, are being phased out in favor of Safari App Extensions, a much more limited type of extension that must be distributed as part of a Mac app. Legacy Safari extensions will no longer work in Safari 13.

Chrome and Firefox provide powerful extension frameworks that allow us to offer advanced functionality such as automatic proxy detection and automatic RIS/BibTeX import, features that weren'​t possible in Safari even before Apple further restricted what Safari extensions can do. For the best Zotero experience, you may wish to use the Zotero Connector for Chrome or Firefox instead.
