How to Uninstall Safari on a Mac
Safari is the web browser that’s included with the Mac OS X. Many people use it all the time, but others prefer browsers like Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox. So, if you one day decide to use a different browser and want to delete Safari from your MacBook or iMac, how should you go about this? First of all, you should keep in mind that Apple does not recommend uninstalling built-in apps like Safari, as it may affect the normal functioning of other applications. That’s why it’s impossible to remove Safari by simply dragging it to the Trash – the Mac OS will prevent you from doing so. So, if you do want to uninstall Safari, you will need an application remover. We recommend you use Movavi Mac Cleaner – a multi-functional application that, among other things, knows how to remove Safari from a Mac quickly and safely. Just download the program and follow the simple instructions below.
Step 1: Install Mac Cleaner
Open the file you’ve downloaded and follow the onscreen instructions to install the application removal tool.
Step 2: Scan Your Mac
Movavi Mac Cleaner is primarily designed for removing junk files from computers. So, when you launch the program, it will immediately start looking for unnecessary files. To clean all the junk the program finds in one fell swoop, press Start Cleaning. If you’re not interested in deleting anything except Safari, wait till the junk file search is finished and move on to the next step.
Step 3: Uninstall Safari
Open the Uninstaller menu. Wait until the scan of installed applications is complete and click OS X Apps. You will see a list of standard OS X applications on your Mac. To view the list in alphabetical order, choose Sort by Name in the field above the list. After that, find the Safari icon, check the little white box next to it, and click Remove.
Now you know how to uninstall the Safari browser on a Mac with Movavi Mac Cleaner. You can’t get much easier than that!
