Privacy, Security, Encryption The Safari 4 beta is having a little bit of trouble cleaning up after itself, as has been revealed by C. Harwic on his blog. Safari 4 is still in beta, so it's easy to forgive the browser for this rather sloppy housekeeping, which left gigabytes (!) of browsing data in weird places all over your filesystem, even after cleaning the caches or history. Still, this does raise a few questions.

It's basic software behaviour: To follow the user's orders. If I say "delete everything" the software must do as I say.

But this is what betas are meant for: Getting the thing on the user's hands so they can let the developers know what they think about the software. Fixing this should be trivial for Apple.
