    Ok, so im an idiot :eek:

    messing about on my new macbook and Ive accidently (through being stupid) deleted Safari and I forgot how easy it was to get rid of an apple app and its gone completely! I now cant access the internet on it!

    How do I sort this problem? Im currently on my XP laptop. However when I try to download safari to then copy over, it only downloads the windows version.

    Please help :confused::p

    Download an app called 'Pacafist' (the trial/demo will do) and insert your OS X install disk. You should be able to find the Safari install package on your OS X install disk, and install it back into your home folder.

    Just insert your installation disc and do a custom install to get just Safari...no need for Pacifist. See here for more info.

    I don't know where you'd get it from. The full Safari 2 was never available for download...just updaters. The Safari 3 beta has been pulled as the non-beta is now in 10.4.11, but the beta (and maybe the 10.4.11 version as well) required Safari 2 in order to install anyway.

    If you know the URL, you can download using Terminal and curl.

    Of course, it's all moot now. :D
