Flash to HTML5 Extension for Safari

"As you know, OS X Lion ships without Flash Player to the delight of fans in support of Apple's ongoing argument against Adobe's resource-hungry technology. This leaves us with three choices: Avoid Flash content altogether (possible, but hardly an option for mainstream folks), switch to Google's Chrome browser that comes with the latest version of Flash Player built-in (a forced option for Safari fans) or just install the darn thing and deal with consequences later."

And now there is another option with this extension, available here. Personally though, I prefer using Chrome for anything that requires Flash instead of mucking up my Safari with lots of extensions. What are your thoughts?

1Password Updated to Work With Chrome

"Let's face it, remembering passwords rots. If there is any single reason that people choose terrible passwords (or use the same password for everything) it's because remembering them is a royal pain."

I use 1Password all the time, and now it will work with Chrome. Update to v3.5 and it includes an extension for Chrome so you can get the same functionality if you tire of using Safari and prefer using Chrome. I like how they have done this version, as it gives you more information than the way it's done on Safari, but don't take my word for it. You can go to the Agile blog and read all about it.

Safari Extension Gallery is Open

"Apple has launched their official Safari Extensions Gallery, at this time it features 100 extensions out of the roughly 300 out in the wild. All of the extensions on Apple's gallery have been digitally signed and sandboxed so you don't have to worry about security problems like some of the Firefox extensions have had in the past. You will need to have Safari 5 to be able to use the extension feature."

I've been playing around with Safari Extensions since Apple added the feature in Safari 5. There have been some bugs, but all in all, it has been a good experience. With the new Safari update that is now being pushed, extensions are officially turned on by default (Previously you had to activate the Developer's menu to turn the feature on.). There are about 100 extension in the Safari Extensions Gallery now, and there should be plenty more to come.
