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.

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.

Works just fine and I'm running it on a Powerbook to test with Leopard 10.5.8.

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.
