How to uninstall or disable an extension in Safari

Today we use the web browser to carry out a number of procedures, since in addition to looking for information in it, we access different content, we connect on our social networks or download different programs on our computer..

 

 

The extensions are add- ons that have been developed to increase the productivity of a browser. There are extensions of all kinds. In Safari we find hundreds of extensions, both free and paid, to have more work options and it is normal that at some point it is no longer required to use these extensions. For this reason, we have the option of disabling the extension or uninstalling it completely.

 

getFastAnswer will explain how to do this in Safari for macOS..
