Apple has just published the latest upgrade to Safari, version 5.0.1, which includes a whole new feature called “Extensions Gallery,” as well as a number of other interesting fixes.
The Extensions Gallery is essentially a center for add-on features and toolbars for a variety of different web programs and services. Ones that are most likely to be popular among Safari users include extensions for Twitter, The New York Times, MLB.com, and Amazon. There’s even one called “Better Facebook” that will actually tell you when you’ve been “unfriended.” Bummer.
The Safari Extensions Gallery in Safari 5.0.1 is a repository in which users can quickly find and add extensions to the Safari browser. According to Apple, users can “add powerful new features to Safari, from toolbars that display live web feeds to sophisticated programs that filter web content.”
