Homecoming for Mastodon is a Safari extension that makes it easy to open Mastodon pages in different instances.

Just click the extension icon in the Safari toolbar to open a Mastodon page from another instance in your own instance. This makes it a lot easier to follow new accounts on Mastodon!

You can also go in the reverse direction: click the toolbar icon to switch from your own instance to the page's original instance! These features work with both profiles and posts.

Homecoming for Mastodon is a Universal Purchase for iOS and macOS.

Made by indie developer Jeff Johnson. If you need support, please email me at homecoming@underpassapp.com or visit the support site: https://underpassapp.com/homecoming/support.html

To set up Homecoming for Mastodon, just enable the extension in Safari, click the extension icon in the toolbar, enter your Mastodon instance, and save.

Clever Safari extension for Mastodon users that lets you open another Mastodon instance while logged into your own. This greatly simplifies following people.

Remember that Safari extensions are under the “aA” in the URL bar, not in the share sheet. 😅
