Steve Jobs did not mention Safari 5 in his keynote at the WWDC 10. It was all about the iOS 4, iAds and iPhone 4. After the keynote Apple issued a press release announcing the rumored Safari 5 and it is available for download now.

The new Safari 5 browser features the new Reader for reading articles on the web without distraction, a 30% performance increase over Safari 4, and the ability to choose Google, Yahoo! or Bing as the search service powering Safari’s search field.

Available for both Mac and Windows, Safari 5 includes improved developer tools and supports more than a dozen new HTML5 technologies that allow web developers to create rich, dynamic websites. With Safari 5, developers can now create secure Safari Extensions to customize and enhance the browsing experience.

The Safari 5 reader function is kind of interesting. It hides banner ads. On the one hand Apple enters the banner business with iAds on the other hand the hide them on web pages. Next: banners that pop over the Safari reader page.
