Apple has rolled out Safari 5.0.1, the newest tip-top version of its Web browser. Via the newly launched gallery (or straight from a dev's site), users can now download the extensions, which are powerful, sophisticated, and deliver some pretty nifty new features, like web filtering programs and even toolbars that serve up live web feeds.
Amidst heightened security concerns in recent weeks, Apple is making it clear that Safari Extensions are sandboxed. "In addition to activating extensions," Apple Insider noted, "Apple's latest update to the Safari Web browser also plugs a potentially dangerous security hole that could allow hackers to obtain a user's personal information." Fortunately, greater security is backed up by greater stability, with Safari extensions running exclusively in the browser. I'm happy to report a smooth and seamless process in installing and enjoying the new extensions, with user customization as effortless but also as sophisticated as one would hope.
