The new Safari 15 update for macOS has been greeted with plenty of complaints, with its new design confusing users. But as more Safari users become frustrated by the update, one third-party extension has risen to the occasion to fix the perplexing design. 

The Safari 15 update has made it difficult to tell what tab is currently active with its minimalistic redesign, but a third-party extension aptly named ActiveTab is solving the issue. Using simple colour blocks, ActiveTab marks what tab is active in your Safari browser so it is easy to navigate your way around the Apple search engine. Safari is available for both Mac and Windows computers, but if you are looking for an Apple upgrade, why not check out our best Apple deals
