Apple OffNet iPhone and iPad for Browser Extensions

Classic browser enhancements can be placed on iPhone and iPad: the iOS version of Safari supports from autumn with iOS 15 WebExtensions as Apple announced. WebExtensions are a browser-changing standard for the development of extensions that set up web techniques such as CSS and JavaScript. iPhone users and users will be able to expand the pre-installed browser for the first time to extend additional functions, developers get access to a hitherto closed platform.

Extensions need user permission

Since the extensions can take far-reaching insight into web content, the use of an extension requires only one consent by the user – for each website to which they should be used as Apple announced on the developer conference WWDC. The consent can be restrained on a day or granting the long term. In addition, Safari in the address bar will show a small note as soon as an extension can access content of the already approved website. This protective function makes typical extensions such as advertising or script blockers little practicable, for this type of extension, Apple continues to see the long-standing content blocker path.

For simpler browser extensions that can not read sensitive data, no consent of the user will be required, Apple notes. These then only work for the requested website in the currently active tab. If this is closed or called another URL, the extension loses its access authorization – the user must then re-enable them as needed.
