    You didn’t tell the best part of Reader. You can print the article without all the ads, saving us a lot of ink and paper.

      Good point. More headaches for content producers :)

    Hi,

    since I upgraded to safari 5, the videos are not viewable anymore. Some graphics too, I get blank space instead. right now when I clicked the link in your newsletter to your video about new features, I have blank space instead of video.
    what’s the fix Garry ?

    Thank you very much, and enjoying your videos a lot!

    Very cool review Gary!
    Sorry to say I’m going to love “Reader,” feature! After reading and doing reports all day, pushing one button to see larger text is a God sent to me.

    I agree that screening out the ads is a problem for site owners who get paid that way, but the increased type size of Reader is great for those of us who get tired of articles whose type size is too small. Like everything in life, I guess it’s a trade-off.

    I installed Safari 5 when it was first released. I went back to Safari 4 because Safari 5 was very slow. I know that many others had the same problem. Has Apple corrected that problem? BTW your articles and video podcasts are awesome. I’m a fairly new Apple user, making the switch about 11 months ago from a PC. Very thankful to discover your site.

      If there was a speed issue with Safari 5, it must have been for very few people. I updated all my Macs immediately and have seen nothing but speed increases, not decreases. I haven’t had any problems. In fact, Safari 5 will be less problematic because of the way it operates — isolating things like Flash so one crash doesn’t take down the whole application.

        I reinstalled Safari 5 some time ago and changed my DNS. Safari 5 now moves at lightning speed. Once again thanks for such an awesome site.
