Current Safari Extension Won't Work in Safari 13

Safari 13 will be released soon; it will be bundled with MacOS 10.15 Catalina next month, and available via software update on older versions of MacOS. Safari 13 brings changes in the way that extensions work, and these changes will mean that our own Safari extension will no longer work.
