Any plans for those who use gmail through Safari? Seems like a very glaring ommission as a supported browser

 

Thanks,

At this time, HubSpot does not plan to build specifically for Safari because we are not able to bring a comparable experience to Firefox that we have for Gmail and Outlook. As we evaluate other enabling technologies like Google add-ons, we will revisit this idea in the future but for now we are not planning to build a Safari specific solution.

I'm facing the same issue with my JBBATTERY personal browser but still, I have not found any solution.

This is very poor from HubSpot and with Chrome being so resource heavy on my Mac and me fully buying in to respecting my own and my team's privacy (Chrome is an ad machine) as a company we seriously need to reconsider our HubSpot subscription. 

Come on guys, the HubSpot Gmail extension is so useful. Stop cutting out a large chunk of your market and make it available on Safari ASAP!!!!

Apple is now supporting porting of Chrome extensions to Safari. Is that something that will make the transition and support of a HubSpot extension for Safari easier?

Hi there, as stated above, Hubspot keep asking Apple users to use Chrome, non native iOS products.    Second all above comments. 

 

Any update when Hubspot can create extension for Safari?

Hubspot?? - we've been waiting for this for 4 years so far, can you at least indicate when you will add this?

Please HubSpot, do something about this. Safari is optimised for Mac users. Chrome is not.

Could not agree more! I started using Vivalidi instead of Chrome and saw a slight jump in performance. At least I can use the extension in that becuase it's based on Chromium. 

 

But nothing beats Safari for the cross-section of privacy, performance, and ease of use.

+1 for Safari

 

Apple has just announced some nice looking enhancements so I'd love to use it with HubSpot.

 

They've also improved the way that they work with extensions.

 

Now's te time HubSpot!

This is becoming increasingly relevant for our team. As there is a general trend of users moving away from Chrome and both Apple, Google, Microsoft and Firefox have joined forces to draw up standards for browser extensions, I hope the HubSpot team will consider bringing an extension to Safari.

I'm shocked that you still do not have this done already.  Hubspot's internal system randomly deletes the content of my email at times, so I prefer to work inside my companies gmail.  Typically didn't bother me, but I now have a new Mac, and I'm baffeled at the lack of support  from you for Safari.  Do you have any udpates to this?

Hi, Any news on the Safari extension? This is a much more enjoyable experience for users and now due to changes to extension in Safari it should hopefully be easier to use.

Any guidance on this?  It appears nobody understands why this hasn't been done?

I would be very keen to see this product built. Manually typing in the BCC alias on every email I send is painful.

There is some hope: a workaround converting the Chrome extension to a Safari extension through Xcode. This gets in into Safari, however, I am unable to get it set up since the content won't load:

Curious to see if anyone can find a fix for this!

 

Update: I got it to work one day later, after I logged out & in of Gmail!

Converting a Chrome extension to Safari is now piece of cake, as Safari is supporting Safari Web Extensions.

 

"A Safari web extension adds custom functionality to Safari using JavaScript APIs and common file formats from extensions for Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Microsoft Edge browsers. "

Source: Apple Developer Documentation: https://developer.apple.com/documentation/safariservices/safari_web_extensions

 

Could you package the existing Chrome extension so that it works with Safari?

 

Thanks a lot!

If not for hubspot, I don't think I would have been using Chrome for work. Please, add support for Safari. We are coming to the end of 2021.

Hey team,

Are we looking to re-explore this?

We do have quite a large user base using Macbook and Safari - would be nice if we can provide extensions for them too. Thank you!

Thank you, YiRui Chua! It sure would be great to have this extension for Safari, and I’m excited that someone from HubSpot seems to think so, too!
