As the default browser that is include in OS X, Safari is generally well-loved by most Mac users. However some tend to prefer other browsers such as Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox because they are more accustomed to using them or simply prefer their features and interface.
If you find that you tend to use some other browser, why not remove Safari from your Mac rather than leave it kicking around and taking up space? Just like other native OS X apps you can’t delete it through normal means, as you’ll only receive an error for your troubles if you try to.
At the same time trying to manually remove Safari can be tedious – which is why your best bet is to uninstall it with Movavi Mac Cleaner. To do just that and delete Safari from your Mac safely without affecting other apps, just follow these steps:
- Launch Movavi Mac Cleaner and wait as it automatically scans your Mac for junk files.
