Apple Safari extensions hit 5.0.1 deck

About time too

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Apple has updated its Safari web browser today, less than two months after it landed with a bump for some fanbois in early June.

Cupertino has switched on extensions in Safari 5.0.1 for the pleb set, and Apple has also debuted its Extensions Gallery for the browser.

It initially kept extensions away from the Safari 5 party to allow coders to create add-ons in HTML5, JavaScript and CSS3 standards for the surfing tool.

“Every Safari Extension is signed with a digital certificate from Apple to prevent tampering and to verify that updates to the extension are from the original developer,” said Apple.

“Safari Extensions are sandboxed, so they can’t access information on a user’s system or communicate with websites aside from those specified by the developer. For increased stability, Safari Extensions run solely in the browser.”

The Safari extensions gallery has add-ons from the likes of Amazon, MLB.com, Twitter and even Microsoft’s very own Bing.

The update is available here and the Safari extensions gallery is here. ®
