What it says above. Extensions are now super easy to make, just need to port your code.

I don't use Stumbleupon anymore because I can't use it with Safari, but I really miss it!

Brilliant, well done. Works great, non-obtrusive, and I have already found loads of new films to watch...

So how about an iPad stumble bar, I guess we are waiting for Apple again?

Hi Monica, what are the plans in terms of having a toolbar in safari (a la firefox)? Having a button just doesn't cut it once you've had the toolbar in firefox. Thanks.

Brilliant? It's a bookmark. It's not a way to suggest pages for others. So far, SU is not usable in Safari, and this doesn't change that.

Thanks for your reply CH,
This extensions has been around for a while, correct?
Because when I launch it, should it show up as a toolbar feature or in my Apps folder.
I had this situation last time.

It's a brand new extension, @CircleTwelv



The StumbleUpon extension shows as an icon beside the URL bar, and can be managed via Safari → Preferences → Extensions

We need a toolbar like Firefox has. We still don't have that. This is not a solved problem, folks!

Until the date, the reason why isn't possible to create a Safari toolbar equal to the Firefox one is because Safari's infrastructure doesn't allow it. Same as Chrome.

I figured that. Really, I just wanted to point out that calling this "the SU extension" is misleading. It's a bookmark, that's all.

As far I can see, the chrome and safari toolbar are almost identical.

edit: Ok, there's a considerable difference, you can't embed the toolbar to submit a site. But you can do that with this: http://www.stumbleupon.com/submit/

The Web Toolbar is a fad. Firefox's and IE's toolbars are the best, and the web toolbar doesn't even come close to being as intuitive as the real deal. I understand that Safari is very closed regarding the browser's design, making it impossible for an "extension" to create a new, full-fledged toolbar. That's why you should ditch "extensions", ditch the "web toolbar", and make a plugin that actually changes Safari's code so that an extension like Firefox's can be implemented. Same with Chrome.

Or you could at least make it so that the web toolbar is a one to one copy of the real toolbar. For instance, sending stumbles to friends through the web toolbar sends an email by default, which is horridly annoying and beats the purpose of the toolbar altogether. It makes no sense! If I want to send an email, I send an email. If I want to send a Stumble to a friend with StumbleUpon, this should never go outside the boundaries of Stumble and its toolbars. Either make a PLUGIN for Safari, or improve the web toolbar a great deal. But whichever way you choose to go, what is certain is that as of now, the web toolbar is a fiasco.

How's that possible?

@Carlos - Clearly, louis2292 is not a software developer, but that's irrelevant.

The main point is that StumbleUpon is driven by user-generated content. If it is LESS CONVENIENT for users to submit sites, Photoblog, etc., then that detracts from the usefulness and the business value of StumbleUpon.

So, YOU figure out how it's possible.

The onus is on YOU to come up with a fully-functional StumbleUpon toolbar for Safari and Chrome. We are not a community of developers. We are a community of users telling you what we need in order to continue adding content to StumbleUpon.

That's the purpose of this forum. If you want our continued contributions to the community, then it's up to you to figure out the details.

The web toolbars for Safari and Chrome are missing features included in the Firefox toolbar. And unfortunately Firefox has turned into a slow, crappy browser.

It's very simple: We need a fully-functional toolbar for Safari and Chrome. The details are up to you to figure out.

I am not a software developer. That doesn't mean I don't know what I'm talking about. Save your rants for someone else.

That aside, you do make a good point in saying that since we are a community of users, all we have to do is tell StumbleUpon that the way things are right now isn't working for us. The real toolbar plugin is possible, but it's ultimately unnecessary if the web toolbar is improved to the point of being identical to the real toolbar. As Ryan said, sadly Firefox has devolved into a slow browser, especially on the Mac, and beta testing of Firefox 4 isn't very promising, in my personal experience. StumbleUpon is the only reason I have Firefox installed, and it's the only reason I use Firefox. Should the web toolbar reach the quality level of Firefox's toolbar, then I'd be a very happy Stumbler.

Hi Lorilynn, If I'm understanding your Q correctly, you want to know what the SumbleUpon extension is? The website SumbleUpon.com is a site that allows you to post on your your own StumbleUpon page any media the you like & want to share that you "SumbledUpon". Including websites, photos, videos....etc.
Windows & Firefox have a stumbleupon toolbar that allows you to stumble anything on the net directly to your stumbleupon homepage without having to copy, then go to your "SumbleUpon" homepage then paste the website, photo etc that you want to share. Safari lacks this SumbleUpon toolbar. Or at least it did. However I have been unable to successfully install the Safari 5 SumbleUpon extension myself. Frustrating!

I hope that this has answered your Q. If it hasn't I've possibly confused or frustrated you a bit more.
Pologies in advance.

Search "StumbleUpon" in the Productivity section.

Thank you Carlos, but it gives this result when trying to install "This developer’s server appears to be busy. Please try again later."

I do have a version of the toolbar installed on Safari, but it disappears every time a new page loads.

Also seem to have gotten into a bit of trouble with an unauthorized app, sorry, I didn't know third party extensions were illegal.

The same message is reading. Can you confirm or deny that app will be unavailable until after the Oct. 24th changes?

Any 3rd party apps should not be available or used. If they are still up and running and you're using them, it is very likely they will be shut down sooner or later. Therefore, we strongly recommend not using them.

This isn't a third party app. It is the SU tool for Safari, and it is not available, again "This developer's server appears to be busy. Please try again later." This is after following the link that Carlos provided, from the Productivity section where it lists the SU extension. It is not available. I've been trying to communicate this for two weeks, in the meantime tried to install a third party app and you threatened legal action against them. Never mind. I'm deleting my Stumbleupon account.
