Many prefer to use the older Reddit design. It's sleeker, faster to load, and easier to skim large amounts of posts with.
You can set your preference in your profile to use the old Reddit design, but it doesn't automatically push you to it - you'll still wind up waiting for a behemoth of a UI to load if you click a random Reddit link while not on old.reddit.com already. Chrome and Firefox have convenient extensions to force-rewrite the URL, but Safari is lacking... maybe due to the APIs being different, or maybe due to the up-front cost for the developer program.
So we built one, because it should exist. Once it's installed, check your `Safari preferences` -> `Extensions` list and enable it, and it should "just work" from there.
The software is released as-is, and by using it, you agree that you understand this. It records no data, and has no analytics beyond anything Apple provides in terms of download numbers. If you find anywhere that we've errored in this, get in touch.
