Safari Extensions

Instapaper Greystyled and Instapaper Article Tools extensions for Safari 5. It’s a quick implementation, but Apple’s made it pretty easy to turn a userscript into a Safari extension. (How cool is that?). More on the way. More integration into Safari’s UI, perhaps.

If you don’t already know them, they’re userscripts I’ve written. Instapaper Greystyled restyles Instapaper.com to look like this:

Instapaper Article Tools adds a subtle, floating toolbar next to the text articles on the website, so that while reading you can quickly navigate back, archive, star or delete an article, edit the text properties of the article,  or page up, page down, and enable auto-scroll. It looks like this:

Update July 19: Yet Another Instapaper Extension: InstapaperIt gives you two ways of sending links to Instapaper to read later. When you’re surfin’ and you see a link to an article you want Instapapered, rather than having to open that link, wait for it to load, and then hit the instapaper bookmarklet or a toolbar button:

1. You can right click on the link and you’ll see a new item in your contextual menu “InstapaperIt”. Selecting that will send the link you’re right clicking on to instapaper.

2. You can pick (in preferences) either the shift key or the alt/option key. Hold down your chosen key while clicking a link and that will get sent to Instapaper in the background.

You’ll know the link has been sent when it turns black…
