Safari Redux

I said yesterday:

  • Security – I have a feeling this will make it much more of a target to hackers. So far Safari has fared pretty well. I guess we’ll see.

Well, that didn’t take long.

The bottom line is: web browsers are complicated pieces of software that deal with a ton of different technologies and render code written by people you shouldn’t trust. While countless security measures are taken, nothing short of floating a hard drive in outer space will be secure, and even then… you never know.

Security is partially about preventing problems, and largely about dealing with them.
