I need to extract a Safari extension (.safariextz) on a PC. There are of course Mac OS X instructions for how to do this, but none for PC.

I've tried 7zip, WinZip, and jZip...none of them recognize the file.

Safari extensions are in the xar (eXtensible ARchiver) format.

You can download the implementation source code here and might be able to build on Windows (perhaps Cygwin).


7-zip supports xar archives. Change the file extension and try again.

Thanks much! I didn't think rename extension would affect it, but that worked –  Emile Mar 9 '11 at 20:13
