Affiliatizer For Safari: An extension to earn money for other people

Another day, another new Safari Extension.

Affiliatizer For Safari rewrites Amazon links around the web so that they include the affiliate code of your choice. (Affiliate codes let folks earn tiny kickbacks from Amazon when they refer buyers to the site.)

Affiliatizer only rewrites an Amazon link if it doesn’t seem to contain an affiliate code already. And, of course, you get to set what affiliate code it uses.

As noted on my new, barebones Safari Extensions page, if you don’t enter in an affiliate code for Affiliatizer to use, it will randomly pick either mine (thelexfiles05-20), John Gruber’s (daringfirebal-20), or Jason Snell’s (intertext) — once per pageview. 

If you or someone you love has an Amazon affiliate code, install this extension to earn them a little extra scratch when you buy stuff.
