    Safari is Apple's browser. Unless you are very careful it is offered by Apple's software updater. I've no idea about it being good or bad. For some Apple propaganda see Apple - Downloads - Application Updates - Safari 3.1.

    Hi Joe,

    It looks like you started to say something about "unless you're very careful"
    What should I be careful of??

    Thanks,

    John

    Nothing more than unless you know what is going on with the Apple software updater you're going to be notified of software to be installed that you may not have installed already - i.e. Safari. There is a rather convoluted way to disable offering the software - Run the updater when it is finished checking for updates, uncheck the progrms you wish to continue to see, then go to Tools | Ignore selected udpates. The ones you don't want to see should be gone. By going to Tools | Restore Ignored Updates you can reverse the process.
