Safari: It's Still for Jungles Only *UPDATE 2*

I forgot to mention yet another tid-bit about this Safari release...

When you choose to install the Bonjour part of the package, the Bonjour module makes calls out to the Internet repeatedly throughout the day.  This happens even when Safari has never been opened!

I don't know about the rest of you, but I never trust a dormant program that makes calls out to the Internet - REGARDLESS to who developed the program.  And the calling executable is conveniently named "mDNSResponder.exe".  That sounds 100% safe, doesn't it?  The bright side is at least it isn't named something more malicious sounding like, "SteveJobsIsWatchingYouRightNow.exe".

Can you guess what I have recently uninstalled???  :)
