Apple brings Safari web extensions to iPhone and iPad | Engadget

Along with a raft of privacy updates, Apple announced more features for Safari during its WWDC keynote. Among them is bringing web extensions to Safari on iPad and iPhone.

It’ll be easier to manage your tabs and windows thanks to a redesigned tab bar as well as tab groups. Tabs are more compact and you can tap the address bar for more info about the active web page. The tab bar combines your tabs, the toolbar and the search field into one space. It also adopts the same color as the webpage you’re using. 


From the looks of things, tab groups will act like active bookmarks and help to reduce clutter. You’ll find them on the left sidebar on Mac. They sync across all of your devices and you’ll be able to share tab groups with others. 

On iOS 15, the revamped tab bar will appear at the bottom of the screen. It appears with a tap and your iPhone will hide it again when you start scrolling. You’ll be able to swipe to different tabs from the bar as well.
