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.

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.


At which point it does what you say, and wipes the disk. ;)
