I downloaded a Safari plugin called XML View Plugin.webplugin and have
no idea where it should be placed to work in Safari 5.

It did not come with an installer and I have not found Safari Plugin folder.


 24" iMac and 13" MacBook Pro both w/4GB , Mac OS X (10.6.4)

    for all users : in HD/Library/Internet Plug-Ins/

    or for just specific users : Home/Library/Internet Plug-Ins/

    In either case, Safari will need restarting for it to become active.

    Thanks I was not searching on Internet.... no wonder I could not find the folder.

    Interesting there are all kinds of plugin in HD/Library/Internet Plug-Ins but zero
    in my user/Library/Internet Plug-Ins folder. I just dropped the new plug-in into the
    user folder.

    Thans for the tip... I was having a brain freeze.

    I copied the file to the Internet Plug-Ins folder and restarted my MacBookPro. But, I'm still not able to view the XML file with the formats - it's all text without any breaks.


    I'm using Safari 6.

    Hi Meera


    safari from 10.7 on doesn't support  webplugin types, if that's what you're using


    you might look for a suitable extension

    or a more up to date plug-in
