Safari Hierarchy-list

Command clicking the Title bar in Safari used to produce a dropdown menu that let you see the current web pages hierarchy. You also used to be able to click on the list items and be taken to that part of the site. But in recent updates to Safri this option has gone.

I wanted to get back, but could not find a way to re enable it.

So I wrote my own in the form of a Safari Extension.



Hierarchy List Safari Extension


 This extension displays a Popover with the currents tabs/windows website’s folder hierarchy.


HIERARCHY List now has a dark mode.

Go to its extension settings and toggle to the one you want

Each listed subdirectory is a clickable link which will take you there, if the site allows the subdirectory to be displayed *.

(*if the subdirectory cannot be displayed due to normal permissions you will go to the sites 404 page or any redirect they supply for no-access subdirectory or pages. )

  1. Hi, I just realised that the error you were getting was not to do with the changes made by apple. This should be fixed now. Please re download the plugin.

  2. Hi,

    Apple has changed the way extensions work. I am just waiting for them to approve my update and then I will update this post with a link to the updated version.

  3. I, too miss this functionality greatly. Thanks for bringing it back! But I get an error trying to install this extension in Safari 9.0 on OS X 10.10.5 🙁

    A dialog pops up and says “Safari can’t install this extension. An error occurred while installing this extension.”

  4. One request for this. Your screenshot above is a good example. Besides offering the hierarchy back to the root, also offer “www.”. Sometimes you navigate to some subdomain of the site, and there’s no obvious way to get back to the main site.

    Thanks again.

  5. Thank you so much for this! I really missed this functionality from when Apple changed the toolbar.
