True,but for Apple it isn't enough,they want to sneak into Windows OS browsers too.In this situation I would like to see Internet Explorer on Mac OS.I would like to see Apple's face in that situation

Even if it has a lot of security issues,IE7,IE8 seems much more better and compatible than Safari

hahaha...It should be classified as one in my books 😛...

They've been doing this as well with Quicktime and Itunes..Talk about scandalous. NO, I don't want your [censored]itunes, just give me quicktime so I can visit apple trailers 😛. Back a while ago, they were a 100% packaged deal if anyone remembers...But I guess a lot of people complained and they offered it as an option. SCREW APPLE...The company, not the frut which is ohhh so delicious 😃.

 Apple posted a new commercial:

This time bashing Vista on soem poor reviews it gor months ago. Any touting that Leopard got a perfect 10 review from some non-computer site.

 

If you look at the page they are on, it is an article on this very topic of Apple pushing through Safari. \

 

You know what, I think the Apple products are neat, but just for all of these stupid commercials that are released that do nothing but bash Windows using half-truths and misconceptions I am not going to buy an Apple product. You know, I haven't seen an Apple commercial about Apple products in years! Heck, Apple could be simply an apple orchard given what they play in the commercials. Come on Apple, maybe one screenshot of Leopard? or how about why you should buy a Mac?

 I don't mind it, but with Itunes I had tons of folders and files just created and throw here and there, so I really don't trust Apple. Their philosiphy is to do it for you and behind the scenes, and thats something I don't trust, especially when it comes to them shoving a browser down my throat.

 

Plus I remember the first Mac virus (or at least one of the first) released a few years ago, turns out Safari (or it might have been quicktime) always opened a file after you downloaded it, no questions asked.

 

I used Safari a little a year or two ago, and just could not stand it, so I used IE on that Mac! Currently I use Firefox, and IE (for flash stuff) and am all set for browsers thank you very much, if I want a new one I will look into Opera.

In my opinion,the only software that is made by Apple for Windows OSes is Quicktime Pro/Player.The rest are just bloatware,and Safari isn't even open-source

Why not just use a "universal" media player for your quicktime trailers? I know you are a media buff....so what are your thoughts on VLC? (its what I use for all odd file types when I don't desire having extension-specific players all over my PC)

Also if you know of a way to DL just iTUnes w/o quicktime you should let me know (I mean aside from just un-installing Q.T. after the install is complete)

Safari -- meh; unnecessary in all respects as it does less than firefox and in some cases less than IE (*GASP!!*) so why bother?  Security isn't as much of an issue with Macs so maybe they aren't used to programming as such - when they address this a bit more and add some extensions maybe I will play a little more with it

I don't think its possible to install iTunes without quicktime as apple claims you need quicktime to be able to see certain content. I actually think iTunes is the spawn of SATAN  and will do everything in my power to keep it off all the personal computers in my possession including a G4 system I have which is running OS X Tiger. install quicktime, go out of your way to get the QT version without iTunes and it tries to force iTunes and now Safari on you that really sucks.

I stopped updating my iTunes a few months ago.  I just didn't see the point.  So I totally missed this controversy, even though I use iTunes almost everyday.  Likewise I don't update WinAMP anymore.  Just no point if it does everything fine already.  Unless I hear second hand of some good new feature, I'll hesitate to upgrade.

really the itunes updates are for new products like the 32 gb ipod touch  needed a update to run when it first came out
