當蘋果開始籌組Safari Extension Gallery的同時,一眾Safari Extension已經急不及發熱發光。其中一個本土原創Chan-nel嘅i903 Extension真係值得一讚!除咗商台以外仲有得揀997、RTHK2,比Hong Kong Toolbar(叫自己HK也太霸道了吧!)優勝,相信不久嘅將來作者會加入更多頻道。如果你有邊用電腦邊聽收音機嘅習慣,要試下啦!(當然Safari 5是必須的)

至點樣開啟Safari 5 Extension就睇依篇文章 How to Enable Extensions in Safari 5

只要按881/903的icon,i903的menu就會出現,選台之後需要少少buffer時間要耐心等候。

If you’re like me using Google Reader to consolidate and organize your feeds, you may find many Safari 5 extensions out there useful to enhance your feed reading experience.

1. GReader
It adds a feed button with the number of unread news in Safari menu bar, very handy!

2. Google Reader Style
Some styles for Google Reader can be selected. I don’t like the default Google Reader style.

And it has some Twitter clients support like Tweetie. I do hope Adium will have its Twitter extension soon.

Before we can really have our hands on the new iPhone 4G, actually the release of Safari 5 is a bigger news that people may miss out. It’s showing how Apple pay afford and get ready to the new era of web development and open standard – HTML5.

Safari 5 requires 1Password 3.2, other plugins like ClickToFlash and Speed Download have no problem with Safari 5

I’m not sure the requirement of new Reader feature. It works for some technical reading sites that I usually surf.

Reader view, you can change font size, mail or print the article in better printing format.

Extension is a “secret” hidden feature! It answers to complaints that Safari couldn’t have plugin like Firefox. Wish many useful extensions will appear soon!
