Safari deliberately stopping access to 3rd party apps?

If I was a certified paranoid, I'd be thinking that Apple has somehow prgrammed Safari to reject 3rd party app web sites. Over the course of the last weekend I've tried to access some 3rd party sites, the most recent I remember was a site that offered software to load Linux onto an iPod. I got the old Safari can't find the server message. I wasn't really paying attention and can't give specifics about the other sites, but ran into this message several times this past weekend. What caused the 'light bulb' to come on was my attempt to download Chrome. A 52 Mb, that's MB download has been running for 15 mins now and claims it's going to take another 2 hrs. to finish. I've just run SpeedTest.net's test and my download speeds are reported as good.

Has anyone else experienced this? Or am I the only one left still running Safari?

I use Safari about 90% of the time, no problems here.

Nuts. Do you really think that Apple maintains a database of iOS jailbreaking sites that it programs into Safari? Or do you think that Apple maintains a server farm that Safari calls home to before visiting each new site?

Which brand of tin foil do you use to cover your head?

No problems here.

My guess is that there is a firewall somewhere -- if you are calling from inside a Corporate net that would be an explanation. You internet service provider might also be a culprit.

Additionally, the site might be temporarily down from whatever reason.
