Dear Apple, We Don't Want Safari
Have you downloaded and installed Safari?
Would you use it?
Apple has used an interesting approach to market their Safari browser for Windows users. The folks in Cupertino realized that plenty of Windows users had iTunes. I guess they figured Windows users aren’t too bright so maybe they could trick them into downloading Safari and they would start using it without noticing.
I’m not a big fan of autoupdate programs. I’ve written before about annoying updates form Google, Adobe, AOL and Apple. My point today is even with all these efforts Safari still hasn’t made any impact on the browser market. According to my recent web stats, Safari only has 3.5%. That includes Mac users!
Wait a Minute?
I have my settings set to NEVER!!!
Someone needs to tell Apple that Windows users aren’t stupid. They’ve tried to force Safari on folks for a couple years and it’s just not working. If they really want to enter the browser war they need a new approach. Maybe we need some commercials with “I’m on a Safari” vs “I’m an Explorer”.
