Well, the 'Windows' version has bugs.<br>That's the latest warning from Microsoft...(from Wash.Post. 'Sign-in' required)<br><br>"Microsoft on Friday warned of a serious risk to people who use Safari on Windows XP or Vista, going so far as to suggest people "restrict use of Safari as a web browser until an appropriate update is available from Microsoft and/or Apple."<br>"Good news is that according to Redmond there aren't yet any known attacks against the flaw. Bad news is that if anyone does create such an attack, a crook could install any software he wished - such as 'bot' malware that allows for complete remote control - on a victim PC.<br>The threat targets two separate flaws, one in Safari and one in IE, and you'd have to first browse a malicious site with Safari. Doing so would download unwanted software onto your desktop, which could then be executed without your permission by triggering a separate flaw in IE (and you wouldn't have to start IE to get hit). In its security advisory, Microsoft acknowledges the critical risk of 'remote code execution,' which is as bad as it gets."<br><br> But I guess it's ok to use Firefox?<br><br><br><br><br><br>[color:blue][/b]Hodie mihi.

Nice! Microsoft can use a bug in their own browser, combined with a bug in Safari (or is it in Windows? "a patch from Microsoft of Apple" leaves it open) as a reason to use their own browser <br><br>nagr[color:red]o</font color=red>mme<br><br>I require stroyent!<br>TeamMacOSX.com | MacClan.net
Simple fix - Use Safari on both partitions ---> Delete IE on both,, and that would do it.<br><br>You could of-course delete Safari on both but that would leave you with the biggest security hole in browsers which is IE. Then again there is Fire Fox and that other if you wanna go that route<br><br>
