through your web browser, you will see the flaw of Apple’s Dashboard, new in Tiger 10.4…The program has the ability to install programs, erase hard drives, a whole bunch of stuff we don’t like, right through Safari…It bypasses the need for a user name and gets right to the goods…

If you’re using SAFARI, the widget will install automatically, and if you’re using Explorer, Firefox, or something else, it will save it to your desktop to which you would have to place it in the right folder from there.

Apple is working on a patch for safari, but for users wishing to install Tiger, it is recommended that you manually uncheck the SAFARI checkbox when doing a customized install and wait for Apple to fix it…then just download it free from their site…
