AfterÂ updating its computers yesterday, Apple took the next logical step today releasing the newÂ Safari 5.0.1 with a great new twist. Apple has also formally launched the SafariÂ extensions Gallery, a directory of extensions and browser ad-ons now available from Amazon, eBay, Bing, MLB.com, the New York Times, and Twitter.
The new Safari Extensions Gallery is accessible straight from the browser menu or at extensions.apple.com. Users can download and install extensions from the gallery with a single click, and thereâ€™s no need to restart the browser. The Extensions Gallery allows users to quickly find extensions that add powerful newÂ features to Safari, from toolbars that display live web feeds to sophisticated programs that filter web content. Safari 5.0.1 allows users to download and install extensions either from the Safari Extensions Gallery or directly from a developerâ€™s site. Add-ons can be automatically updated and are managed within Safari. Users can enable or disable individual extensions, or turn off all extensions with one click.
