No Apple, I don't want Safari

It is old new by now, but there was a bit of hubbub recently about Apple's inclusion of Safari 3 in its update manager (for Windows).

Gruber has a good writeup, concluding that there would be no issue at all if Apple left the box unchecked by default or visually separated new installs. I pretty much agree. I don't really have a problem with Apple using the update tool as a way to advertise new applications, but don't make it a default install. However, it doesn't end there.

Apple KEEPS TRYING TO INSTALL IT! I have two browsers already (Firefox, IE), I hardly need a third.

  1. Agreed! Glad to see I am not the only one ticked off (and checked off) by unwanted applications that keep trying to install themselves. Agree 100% with your take: it is OK and fine to let people know you have something new to offer, but to keep pushing it? So 20th century...
