be careful with apple's safari

Some major issues have cropped up for users of Apple’s new Mac web browser Safari since the first public beta of the program was announced and posted earlier this week. Probably most worrisome of the issues: a bug that can wipe your hard drive’s home directory. Other users have reported problems with printing. More bugs are being discussed on Apple’s Safari messageboard.

Because this is a beta and not a full public release, it’s to be expected that Safari would have some bugs. Still, it’s worrisome that Apple would release something with potential problems of this magnitude.
