Social Plus can frustrate you at times. Know how to uninstall Social Plus on Facebook Safari and get rid of the addon permanently
What Internet Explorer is to computer safari is to mobile phones. Safari is the most popular browser for mobile phones beating other browsers hands down. It was developed by Apple for its products. Later on Mac made Safari its default browser. So, iPhone, iPad and other users of Apple products will be familiar with Safari. It is also available on other platforms like Android.
One reason for Safaris popularity is the Safari Extensions. These are add-ons and plug-ins provided to help you in various ways. These are developed by various developers and are digitally signed for security. Of course, sometimes it so happens that the extension doesn’t work like you expected it to or you feel it might be a virus or malware of some kind. Sometimes the software is not well written. It might clash with other plug-ins or it may slow down the operating system. Then you want to remove it but don’t know how.
Unless you absolutely don’t use a computer or mobile phone at all it is highly unlikely that you don’t have a Facebook account. Just like internet changed the history of the world, Facebook changed the way we interact with each other. Its popularity has many reasons but foremost is the ease of use and the various features that come with it.
