I want to play around with Safari again. At first I didn't like Safari so I deleted it. But now I want to download it again to try it again. But the only version I can find to download on the Apple web site is not compatible with my mac for some reason. Is there anywhere else I can get another version of Safari? :black:

Safari is bundled with OS X, you can't download it. What version of OS X do you have?

I tried the reinstall bundled sofware. but it didn't seem to have installed Safari. I don't need to click OS X do I? (now I feel like the village idiot)

You can reinstall Safari from the Tiger disc doing a Custom install. Before doing that, remove the Safari.pkg from Macintosh HD > Library > Receipts

After installing, check Software Update for Safari's update.

Does anyone else feel it's absolutely ridiculous that it can't be downloaded via the internet? What if I lost the CD or don't have it with me? I'm just SOL?

This is a huge inconvenience and almost overshadows many of the reasons I like it over Microsoft.

Well that could be true, but if you lost your install disks, then you have bigger problems than just Safari if something went wrong.

I don't see a big problem not being able to download Safari, it's not like it doesn't come with every Mac. You also can't download Mail, Address Book, iCal, iChat, etc.

The original disks that came with your Mac should always be available. Losing them? Would you lose the keys to your car?

people do lose the keys to their cars. happens all the time.
and typically all you need to do is engage the dealer - with the proper paperwork and a vin - to get a new set at a nominal fee.
that is, of course, if you don't have a backup.

which begs the question...
can you dup the mac discs that come with your hardware?
(not should, mind you, but can you?)

I am very sure you can make backups of the Install DVD's. I did it with my Tiger DVD just in case something bad happened to it. Never tried backing up the DVD that comes with the computer though.

The comparison with car keys was bad. After all, install disks stay home all the time. Pretty hard IMO to lose them.

My neighbor's house burnt to the ground 3 months ago, he lost everything he owned, except for the cloths he had on when he went to work that morning and the laptop he was carrying.

So this means that all the people coming in forums saying they've lost their install disks were victims of house fires?

;^)

The thing is this: you buy a computer, store your install disks in a secure place where you know they are. This is as precious as your computer. The disks are a way to fix and save your computer. Simple. The disks should be considered as such.

Dont think I said that at all. My comment was simply to point out that accidents happen everyday. And each person/incident can have unique and different reason for needing or requesting something, and thus be dealt with individually.
