Reddit Enhancement Suite, commonly abbreviated as RES, is a suite of extensions for Reddit. It is distributed as a browser extension for numerous browsers, such as Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox and Opera, and was formerly made available for Safari.

Reddit Enhancement Suite provides many features that Reddit's web client doesn't.[4] Reddit Enhancement Suite is considered a fundamental plugin by many Reddit users, even being praised by Reddit ex-CEO Yishan Wong.[5][6]

On January 2, 2017, Steve Sobel wrote an article on Medium discussing Safari's new extension policy for developers.[7][8] Following this article, on February 18, 2017, Reddit Enhancement Suite for Safari reached end-of-life status, and further development ceased.[9][10]
