Furiganify! is a lightweight extension for Safari that adds Furigana reading aids (Ruby characters) to Japanese text.

All processing occurs on your device to ensure maximum privacy. Furiganify only reads the content from webpages you explicitly select. No data about the webpages you visit or their content ever leaves your Mac.

Both Latin characters (Romaji) and Hiragana can be used.
Furigana can be added to the whole webpage or only to a selected segment.

What’s New

Version 1.1.1

- you now have the option to add Romaji (latin character) furigana annotations to all Japanese characters (Kanji, Hiragana, and Katakana) on a webpage.

Works now!

This is an update to my firs review below. It seems Morten managed to fix something as the version 1.10.0 now works for me! This is a pretty cool extension, thanks for your work!
It even works on my iPhone's Safari!
Sorry but this extension doesn't seem to work, at all. (No furigana shows up.)
I'd be glad to be proven wrong though, as this is something I could really use.

Developer Response ,

Dear TokyoSto,
the latest update (1.10.0) should improve stability and performance, especially for longer webpages. Please give this update a try and let us know if things are working (or still not working) for you.

Cheers from Tokyo
