Apple Safari 5: Features Include Support for Developer-created Extensions

By Jamie Pert - Jun 8, 2010

Earlier today we revealed that Apple Safari 5 was now available for download for PC and Mac, we are now hearing details regarding this release, it is said to be 30% fatser than Safari 4, which may well make it faster than Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox (find out more here).

Personally I am more excited to hear that Safari 5 will support extensions, currently I run Mozilla Firefox with 8 developer-created extensions installed, these extension block ads, add extra functionality and modify the appearance, which basically has allowed me to fully customize my web browsing experience.

Apple have also introduced a free program for developers, this allows extensions to be developed using HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript, if you would like to take advantage of the Safari Developer Program check out this link.

The link above also states that there will be plenty of assistance from Apple by way of sample code, conversion guides and a wide-range of technical resources.

Have you downloaded Safari 5? If so, are you impressed?
