    Hello Christopher D,

    You may not have the Status Bar selected in your Safari. Go up to View > Show Status Bar menu command, or use the Command + / keyboard shortcut. It will bring down the Status Bar at the bottom of the Safari screen. This is where you see the URL or whatever you move your mouse over. It's great!

    Best of luck.

    CoolIris is the only plugin I know of for Safari. The home website is unavailable right now. There is a coolirirs and browster plugins for Firefox on a mac.

    I use Firefox ( on a mac almost all the time. It has more features and stability than Safari.

    Coolirirs does 'call home' Read the disclosure on the link below.

    You put your curser over the hyperlink, and it says right at the bottom, just like a PC! lol!
