    Apple has removed Microsoft Internet Explorer from the Dock on demo Macs in Apple Retail Stores and added Safari as the Dock's default browser. Safari 1.0 beta (v60) is now also the default browser in the System Preferences "Internet" pane's "Web" tab on all demo systems. Internet Explorer remains on the demo models' hard drives in the Applications folder.

    "According to a store employee, that's now Apple's standard configuration for demo systems. That's probably a pretty good clue to the company's plans for the future. For now, though, Macs sold to customers still have IE not only on the drive, but also in the Dock," reports Henry Norr in the San Francisco Chronicle.

    MacDailyNews take: Get ready for Apple to drop IE altogether once Safari sheds its beta status. The new configurations on Apple Retail Store demo Macs show clearly where Apple is headed on this issue.

    Hmm... This I think is great. Steer people away from IE for Mac. It sux!

    I just wish they would develope Safari a little faster. On some of my pages, tables look terrible. But they look fine in other browsers like Opera and Chimera and IE.

    Yeah, I'm having problems with Safari renderring CSS correctly...like on my links page on my homepage. The links are set only to underline on hover, but it doesn't work that way in Safari.

    Well I dont really think that Apple is stalling.. When they take alot of time on something it always seems to amaze us, and we forget about how long it took. I have total confidence that I will be a happy camper on this one.

    I concur with Graphite and MacAddikt, it only a matter of time.
