Apple Updates Safari with HTML and CSS Extensions Gallery

By HTMLGoodies Staff

Apple today released Safari 5.0.1, along with an official extension gallery made up of HTML and CSS extensions built by Twitter, MLB.com, Bing, eBay, Amazon and more. Users can install extensions by simply clicking an "install now" button under the extension's description.
