+# Privacy Redirect for Safari
+Privacy Redirect for Safari is a web extension that automatically redirects Twitter, YouTube, Reddit, Google Maps, Google Search, and Google Translate to alternative front-ends like Nitter and Teddit. These front-ends provide users with ways to access the content of popular sites, without exploiting your private information.

+Until now, extensions that could do this were limited to users of Chrome and Firefox. Privacy Redirect for Safari expands this functionality to Safari.
+Unlike other browsers, for many years Safari did not encourage the development of extensions. However, recent updates from Apple have signaled a change in direction, and useful extensions for Safari can finally be developed. Privacy Redirect for Safari is one of the first of this new wave of extensions.
+Privacy Redirect for Safari is the first step in creating a wealth of high-quality extensions for Safari. It's built with the latest and greatest in Apple technologies, like SwiftUI and Safari Web Extensions.

+Privacy Redirect for Safari is a fork of Simon Brazell's Chrome and Firefox extension, porting the extension's functionality to Safari. It solves one of the most frustrating problems with front-ends like Nitter – the need to manually edit links – by having the browser edit them for you.
