It may not have been the headline act at this year’s WWDC 2010 conference, but Apple have now confirmed that Safari 5, the latest build of their internet browser, is on the way.

The new version features Safari Reader for undistracted reading whilst on the web. A Reader icon pops up in the Smart Address Field for compatible pages, and clicking on it brings up a clear, stripped-back version of the article you wish to view.

There is also the ability to choose between Google, Yahoo! or Bing as the search provider and a claimed 30% increase in performance over Safari 4. Better development tools, and fresh HTML 5 tech also make an appearance.

Safari 5 is available for both Mac and PC. You can get it for free by clicking here.
