Much like MPEG-2 support for QuickTime, which… may not be a thing anymore, Synology doesn’t ship disk stations with an ExFAT license. But for four bucks you can buy one. One each disk station. Whatever, it’s fine. Until I found out Safari—even with the Hush plugin turned off—doesn’t want to let Synology.com store a cookie for the disk station to access.

Microsoft Edge (so Chrome) doesn’t care. Though you can’t use Apple Pay in Edge. I guess it makes sense when you think about it for ten seconds—you don’t want one website’s cookie letting you buy something on another website, even if the second website running off a local device. But still. ExFAT support comes free of charge on Mac.

There’s got to be a better way to do it.
