Safari got an update today, and I’ve had a chance to play with it for a bit. It is faster than Safari 4 in every way, the reader works as it should, detecting articles and removing clutter, and the various other UI changes are great.
The benchmark scores from Peacekeeper:
Safari 4: 4833
Safari 5: 5855
Quite a bit faster, and it shows. I’m looking forward to seeing what extensions are released, and I’d like to try my hand at developing for Safari. If you can develop for the web, you should be able to make extensions. The developer section is here.
And you can download Safari here.
