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.

Not that impressed so far

It might be my computer (Macbook 4,1 from 2008) but the performance doesn't really seem any different. As for the reader, which seemed like an awesome feature, on my system it's been disabled ever since I installed Safari 5. I can't enable it on any web page I've tried visiting, it's been grayed out the entire time. So, what looked like the most awesome feature of Safari 5 to me I can't even turn on. Wonderful.

Upon further inspection, even the help topic for reader is unavailable, help viewer claims it doesn't exist. Is anyone else experiencing this? Do I need to reinstall Safari 5 or is this really as buggy as I'm seeing?
edit: typo.

Doesn't work for every news site.

Try this (works for me):
1. go to
2. click on a random article
3. wait until it's fully loaded
4. a reader icon should appear in the adress bar (at the position of the RSS icon) afterwards
5. click on it
6. voila

On sites where it works, it's a very nice feature. ;)

btw: it's only available on Mac OS X 10.5 or newer
