Apple is trying to sneak Safari on Windows!



Why is Apple shoving Safari down our throat. If I had wanted to install that worthless browser on my Windows box I would have simply have downloaded it. The last thing I want is a half functional browser cluttering up my hard drive.

Apple is trying to be slick here in offering Safari via a iTunes update. Nothing like trying to have world domination through some back door way of getting the worthless browser on my windows machine.

Next time you get a iTunes update notice be real careful or you will end up getting Safari installed even when you don’t have it installed. Gizmodo

  1. As opposed to Microsoft cramming IE down my throat be forcing me to have it installed with their operating system?

    For what it is worth: Safari is a great browser. Even on the PC it is better than IE. Yes, even better than IE 7.

  2. Yeah I saw this one too on my PC the other night and thought that it was a tad cheeky. Spam software delivery nice one Apple pull your head in oh high and mighty ones.

  3. [HONK-HONK] – This is just APPLE trying to propagate their software.

    They do the same thing if you’re trying to grab their Quick Time player. They throw iTunes in there with it. I do think that they give you a choice now, but at one time they didn’t. Quick Time Player also used to take over the file formats without asking.

    This is one of the reasons that I don’t use iTunes. MyPodder does what I need it to do for downloading podcast’s mp3 files – no matter the platform I plug the MP3 Player into. I want to look at the RSS feed for something, there’s a TON of choices for RSS feed readers..
