    Default Have iTunes? Say Hello to Safari

    In an apparent bid to rapidly gain share of the online browser market dominated by rival Microsoft, Apple is leveraging its vast iTunes install base to recommend that Windows users also download and install the latest version of its Safari web browser.

    Safari Time!!!

    Wow, desperate times call for desperate measures huh? Since even Mac owners hardly use Safari, they HAVE to appeal to Windows owners.
    All the technology and software in the universe is useless when the end user has the IQ of a sack of hammers.

    Doesn't iTunes also install Bonjour on every machine as well?

    Just the sort of crap you would want, A network service installed in the background by a crappy media player....

    Sure, on a mac os safari runs good, but on a windows os it's the hell.
    I never saw so buggy software. I don't know how works the new version, but mid 2007 it was unusable on a windows os.

    Bonjour takes all of 5 seconds to get rid of.
    Turn off the service, it is the top one with #letters etc at the top of the list.
    Set it to disabled.
    Next reboot you can delete the Bonjour directory

    I don't know who you have been talking to, but on the basis of my statistics, around 75% of Mac users use Safari, and if anything, that would be a conservative estimate.

    No it doesnt. I've uninstalled Bonjour, Itunes still works. Disable look for Apple TV, sharing as well. Altho, it shouldnt matter whether these are ticked or not.

    I tried Safari, its just as bad as FF, its a memory hog. Too bad it cant block ads

    Altho, it looks like FF3 is due to be released soon. Which fixes the memory usage. We'll soon find out
