5 Best Mac Safari Extensions for Students

Extensions have long been used to improve the user experience of browsers. Most users install their favorite extensions for a tailor-made web browsing experience. However, students’ needs are different from most others because they focus on learning and developing new skills.

They need extensions designed to simplify, optimize, and make their workflows more efficient, which is why the extensions we’re going to talk about are particularly advantageous. And if you are a student, you can install one of these applications and enable the corresponding extension in Safari on your Mac.

1. Raindrop.io


If you’re looking for an excellent bookmark manager for Safari, Raindrop.io might be for you. It’s an all-in-one bookmark manager that allows you to easily access articles, videos, PDFs, photos, and web pages. This extension offers a large number of features, the most notable of which are favorites, tags and filters, full-text search (a paid feature), and note back up.

Bookmarking allows you to group similar information into the same bookmark, which makes it very easy to subdivide information into highly specialized groups. Plus, you can choose from thousands of unique icons so you remember where your information is.

Tags and filters are how Raindrop.io categorize individual projects and media clips. If you can’t remember which bookmark or favorite it’s in, this allows you to find specific pieces of information. In addition, with full-text search, you can easily view the full content of any saved website or PDF.

Raindrop.io is great for students because you can organize your saved materials in a variety of ways. Students often have a lot of content to flip through, and having the information neatly stored and readily available is important to keep the work on track.

Finally, you can use Raindrop.io for free, but you can unlock pro features that cost $3 per month or $28 per year.

Key Features


Instant preview (browse content without leaving Raindrop.io)

Multiple views (change how Raindrop.io displays content)

Edit together

Permanent backups (Pro feature)

Full-text search (Pro feature)

2. mymind


MyMind is a note-taking and memorization system that allows you to quickly and easily record or collect information on the web. It serves a similar object to Raindrop.io, but in a completely different way. Instead of using categories or folders, it relies on machine learning’s artificial intelligence software to organize your work for you.

The features offered by MyMind are especially useful for students who prefer a freer and easier way to take notes. Because MyMind is optimized for different note-taking methods, with special emphasis on short note-taking methods, you can effortlessly and quickly save short content for later use.

In addition, the artificial intelligence software in MyMind will save you time, otherwise, you will spend a lot of time carefully organizing your notes, which anyone can benefit from.

Unfortunately, the benefits of MyMind are not free. So, once your trial period ends, you’ll have to subscribe to one of the paid plans. The ‘Life Student’ option is priced at $5.99/mo, the ‘Master’ option is $11.99/mo, and the ‘Newton’ option will soon reach $299/year.

Bitwarden is great for students trying to better protect their accounts in an easy-to-manage way. By being able to generate new passwords and store existing ones neatly, you won’t have to rely on using the same password for everything or have to worry about the insecure storage of many passwords.

Bitwarden offers three price levels. The free account includes unlimited passwords for unlimited devices and Bitwarden’s core features.

The premium account is $10 per year and adds advanced two-factor authentication, emergency access, security reporting, and Bitwarden-specific authenticators.

The suggestion is visually comparable to other built-in writing features of document editors like Google Docs or Microsoft Word.

Grammarly is perfect for students who write a lot of content for their classes. There’s no need to rely on the default word processor’s limited built-in features, providing a lot of potential for improvement in your day-to-day writing work.
