Safari Extensions Now Available Through Browser Update

Windows/Mac: Safari 5.0.1 is out and it's much more than just a bug fix. Installing the update activates Safari's new extensions platform, which has roughly 100 extensions available through the Safari Extensions Gallery.

From an early look around, the majority of Safari's extensions are more akin to GreaseMonkey-style scripts than full-on Firefox extensions. Most appear to be related to the functionality of a single site or making certain web apps easier to access — not that there's anything wrong with that. Tools and offerings for Gmail, Instapaper, eBay and other popular services abound.

See something you like in the Extensions Gallery? Tell us about it in the comments. The Safari update is a free download for Windows and Mac systems.
