Apple Preparing to Launch 'Safari Extensions Gallery'


Apple today sent out an email to registered developers reminding them to submit their Safari 5 extensions for consideration for inclusion in the company's "Safari Extensions Gallery".

We'll soon be launching the Safari Extensions Gallery, a new destination that provides you with an opportunity to increase the visibility of your Safari extension beyond your website.

The Safari Extensions Gallery will feature selected extensions that offer an innovative user experience. And a one-click installation process will allow users to seamlessly install extensions from a developer's website without ever having to leave the Gallery.

Have your extension considered for the Safari Extensions Gallery. Submit your extension download URL and supporting metadata today.

Apple released Safari 5 at its Worldwide Developers Conference just over a month ago. Among other enhancements, Safari 5 includes support for extensions, add-ons created by third-party developers to offer new functionalities within the browser. Several early extensions have already been released, but Apple is still preparing the official launch of the feature with its gallery of featured extensions in the near future.

In mid-June, the company officially invited developers to submit their Safari extensions, noting that the gallery would be coming "later this summer". While still has not provided an official date for the launch, it does appear to be approaching in the relatively near future.

Interested developers can find out more in Apple's Safari Dev Center.
