Browser extensions let you do things like block ads, fill in passwords and find coupons while shopping. Try adding that to an app.
Apple’s Safari has beatenGoogle’s Chrome to the punch with extensions that customize your browser on smartphones and tablets. The software add-ons will be available in Apple’s upcoming iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 operating systems, which are expected to arrive this fall.
Extensions expand browser capabilities, allowing them to block ads and prevent online tracking, for example. Others fill in passwords, translate text, spruce up Wikipedia and track down original photos online. Extensions are already available for the Mac version of Safari.
