Best Safari 5 Extensions

Firefox was the browser of my choice as Safari was missing basic feature, ability to install third party plugins (extensions).

Apple launched Safari 5 on June 7, 2010 and I decided to give it a try. Safari 5 is way faster than Firefox. Safari 5 also has new feature called Safari Reader.

When you open the box, first WOW factor is its built quality. Very slim form factor with very solid feel when you hold it. It has superior quality glass on front and back. Separate volume control buttons on the left side replaces Volume rocker seen on previous generations of iPhone. Hardware is great with the exception of missing Camera hardware button.
