Apple We're a little late with this one, but hey, I have to sleep too. In the middle of last night, Apple released version 5 of its Safari web browser for both Mac OS X and Windows, and it contains some very interesting improvements, including an extensions framework.

Correct amount?

"The ads and various web pages are still fully downloaded, so web sites will still see the correct amount of page views and ad impressions."

If the ads aren't shown, won't the web site see _too many_ ad impressions then?

Yes, to many and less clicks. Some sites which mostly have visitors like this will get different ratios now and less money and less ads from ad-providers I guess.

The page is shown fully and you have to click "Reader" in the URL bar, much like RSS; where upon it displays the Reader view. So you have to view all the ads first before you can mask them (Reader displays over a translucent black background so the original page is visible behind).

It only seems to support specific sites (NYT / BBC &c.) unlike Readability which makes a stab at most pages, so it’s not much of a feature.

If it works on NYT for you, you're having better luck than I am. No matter what article I click, no matter what section, I can't enable reader at all. It remains resolutely grayed out.

I haven't got my hands on it yet (can't restart atm), so I'm wondering how it works. Does it try to guess which div has the content (unlikely since you say it works on specific sites only)? Does it use -webkit-display-this-on-the-reader-thingy or something like that? Does it use the html5 article tag?

Um, it's working just fine on OSnews. Try your own GeOS article.
