Apple Software Update offers Safari 3.1 Web browser

Apple's QuickTime software allows your Enterprise computer to view graphics, videos, on-line video streams (ex: Candidate Interviews in the College). We've recommended and installed QuickTime for a number of years. In the past year, Apple has included software called 'Apple Software Update' as part of the QuickTime install. In our How To Install QuickTime for Windows using the Standalone Installer, we recommend that this software is installed. The Apple Software Update software looked for new releases of QuickTime and prompted you to install new versions.

On March 18, 2008 Apple began offering their current web browser, Safari v3.1, via Apple Software Update as well.

We recommend that you do not install Safari on your Enterprise computer.

You should un-check this option if it appears. We also strongly recommend that you use Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) as your browser. As an example, Internet Explorer is compatible with the College's SharePoint sites. If you use multiple browsers, we recommend that you use IE as your default browser. To minimize software conflicts do not run different browsers at the same time. If conflicts appear, you may need to reboot your computer and run only the browser of your choice.
