This morning Apple released Safari 5.0.1 which enabled extensions by default for all Safari users. I’ve been using extensions on Safari ever since 5.0 was released but have relied on a great tumblr weblog curated by Jonas Wisser to find new extensions.
But, Apple has finally published their Safari Extensions Gallery, a place for developers to share their extension and a place for users to find new ones. The extension gallery isn’t getting as much attention as I believe it deserves. Just look at the companies listed as developers on the homepage — Twitter, Microsoft, MLB, New York Times, eBay, Amazon. Firefox may best Safari in terms of number of extensions but it’s pretty obvious that Safari has the bigger developers backing it.
