For all of you Mac users out there, have a look at Safari Extensions. I initially thought that these would be akin to Firefox Add-Ons. However, they are a lot less and more at the same time. Translation: they add bits & pieces of functionality that make your browsing experience better.
I started with the Google Reader extension. Google does a lot of things well - UI, however, has not traditionally been one of them. Apple is great at UI, but has no RSS reader aside from Mail - which doesn't sync with Google Reader. The Google Reader extension marries the best of both worlds and provides an Apple-like UI right on top of Google Reader.
What was confusing to me at first was how to use this extension. I struggled to look for a toolbar or menu entry. Finally, I just navigated to reader.google.com, and there it was - a stunning new interface on top of Google's excellent RSS reader site.
Here's the before image:
And the after:
It's not a dramatic difference, but enough to add some style to an otherwise excellent RSS reader.
Anyone else have any must-have Safari extensions? Please share them in the comments!
