iOS 5 To Feature Safari Extensions, Download Manager? | RazorianFly

From a source who asked to remain anonymous, RazorianFly has this week received a screenshot taken from a future version of iOS which suggests that Safari Extensions and the ability to directly download (and manage) files from Mobile Safari, may be present in an upcoming version of the software.

Originally found within the internal settings of a pre-release version of iOS, the option “Safari_File_Downloader”, (which obviously appears to be a placeholder), can be seen next to a toggle On/Off switch.

In July 2010, Apple released Safari 5.0 for Mac (and PC) which enabled Extensions (plugins) that competing browsers such as Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and others, already had enabled. Months and weeks after the release of Safari 5.0, speculation is still brewing as to whether Apple has any plans to add this functionality to both iPhone and iPad – and it seems now it may just be set to become a reality.
