Most web plug-ins are no longer supported by Safari. Safari is designed for content that adheres to the HTML5 web standard, which doesn’t call for a plug-in, to load webpages more rapidly, consume less energy, and increase security. Instead of using browser plug-ins, use Safari extensions to improve and personalize your browsing experience.
