It looks like with macOS Big Sur releasing tomorrow it's giving Safari the ability to use Firefox / Chrome with little to no code changes:

"Apple is shipping an extension converter to let you port your extension (from Firefox to Safari) quickly. When you run it, it’ll tell you if everything is going to work as expected. You can then package it in an Xcode project, sign it and submit it to the App Store."

I love the concept of LocalCDN, but I use Safari - do you see this as a possibility for you? If not, when I get a dev cert, I'll see if I can just one-click convert it and publish it on Safari! ☺️

Safari is only available on Apple's OSes (macOS, iOS, iPadOS), so I guess this is only possible when the developer has access to an Apple device.

Well, yes, macOS specificially. I have a Mac, but don't have a dev cert. But when I get one, I'll see if I can turn this into a Safari extension.

Generally yes, but the HTML filter isn't supported by Safari: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Add-ons/WebExtensions/API/webRequest/filterResponseData

This is the same as for Chromium. I don't know if fonts can be replaced. You just have to test it.

If not, when I get a dev cert, I’ll see if I can just one-click convert it and publish it on Safari!

Yes of course you can do that. Just send me a link that I can integrate into the README.md. I don't have an Apple device or account and cannot test Safari.

@Lonk: If you have a link that I can add to the README.md, just open the issue again 😊
