    Just hours after Apple released Safari 5 with support for extensions created by third-party developers, Panic has demoed 'Coda Notes', an extension allowing for website annotation and sharing.
    Panic notes that Coda Notes is buit entirely with JavaScript, HTML and CSS and was built in only four days. The extension is still considered a "quick and dirty" implementation, however, and Panic will continue to refine it before releasing it to the public.

    Never mind, they just released it. In any case, let the extensions start flowing.

    Did Apple give them early access to Safari 5 or the Extension Developer Docs?

    EDIT: Nevermind. Just found out they demo'd at WWDC apparently. :p

    Panic and Steve Jobs have a history.

    Panic was >this close< to being the developers of one of the world's most used app (iTunes) and missed out. Steve likes them and I wouldn't be surprised to see them making it big with Apple at some point.

    No innovation with search, unfortunately. :( The Extension doesn't let you touch the search field, so no Inquisitor. Major bummer.

    This is a great time for browser tech. With HTML 5, and with strong competition from Firefox and Chrome, Safari has to work hard to keep up. We benefit from this.

    I'm already a big fan of Safari Reader. Wow, what a difference it makes!

    That's looks really useful, but most clients I deal with use Windows (and Explorer I assume). Will be useful for my comments to agencies though.

    The readability bookmarklet is superior. You can do sticky fonts and sizes and control background color to some extent. But it's a start.

    Wait, when did Safari 5 come out? Lol I'm off my game tonight. WHOA EXTENSIONS. That's my main reason for holding onto FireFox. That Web Developer Toolbar is killer. Safari needs one.

    are all extensions going to look like this? i would rather have buttons invoke side-drawers. i'll keep my Safari lean and mean.

    Your clients would receive an email containing an image of your notes... I also assume that Safari 5 for windows will allow for extensions and if they wanted to do the same they could download it and send you their notes.

    Am I alone in really liking Chrome, especially the way it does extensions?

    I'm actually surprised that Apple is so far behind on this. On Chrome, for instance, the Google Voice extension is awesome. You can send text messages in seconds without ever having to leave the browser. The only thing holding Chrome back is 1Password compatibility.

    I'd love to go back to Safari, though. But even with this update, I'm not sure its on par with Chrome.

    1Password was just updated for Safari 5. You can either have their extension shown as a button in the browser toolbar or as a key icon in the menu bar. What I don't see is an option in the menu bar for editing/managing extensions.. seems like there should be.

    I guess the best thing that we can do is tell the developers what we want/like. I agree, added toolbars is not something that I want but I also don't want to add a ton of icons to my top menu bar. Apple should have included an extensions menu option... they could have added an icon next to the bookmarks and top sites icons which would have taken us to a view of all the installed extensions.

    Audion was so much better than iTunes was, back in the day!

    They're a top-notch developer. I love Coda. I love Transmit. Fantastic support, too, when I do have (always minor) issues.

    It's actually built using Readability, no reason they couldn't add the ability to change the typeface down the road.

    If you really want to change the typeface you could alter the CSS of the file located at:
    Safari.app/Contents/Resources/Reader.html

    That was a *really* good read. Really recommended!


    ... Now I feel bad for being a SoundJam guy.. :( Man, was I mad the day iTunes was announced... For what it is worth, I didn't think iTunes surpassed SoundJam before v3~4..

    It sounds strange to say, but Panic make the best software I've ever had the pleasure to use. It's hard to describe just how awesome they are.
