The reason Firefox and Chrome are more popular than Safari is because people can code their website to be optimized for one browser and have it run just as efficient on all machines that use that browser(i.e. running better on Firefox regardless of whether Firefox is installed on a Mac or Windows computer).
Also when creating plug-ins they can create one that goes for Firefox, again, regardless of what the actual OS running Firefox is. The smaller market share of Safari combined with the fact that Safari isn't for Windows means developers would have to code for Firefox, and then code again for Safari.
There isn't anything really wrong with Safari but I find it renders pages slower than Firefix although it is less prone to crashing than Firefox. It's really just personal preference.

Perhaps everyone is looking at it at the wrong way. Think about emergence of cloud computing. Perhaps the "iTunes" they're talking about is a web based cloud version of ITunes but safari will recognise iPhones plugged in etc. Would make way more sense than a merge between the two physical apps.
As someone already said, safari is basically embeded into iTunes so all it would be is an addition of an address bar in ITunes and you basically have it. Hardly worthy of dropping iTunes for and selling all your mac equipment and jumping on the droid merry go round. It's just a rumour play with the idea and about how it may be valuable and what you would do if you were to merge them. Makes for more interesting debate.

this would be great. When apple does something they do it right.

iTunes and Safari is slow and bloated on windows thats the main issue here i think... iTunes feels light and nimble on a mac and apple need to make this universal if they combine the 2

I'm...not fond of this idea. Especially when I use FireFox.Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!

I love Chrome, by far the best browser. I have converted pretty much all of my friends. Once they use Chrome once...they never go back to Firefox or IE...Safari isn't even in the picture.El Zurdo

I kinda like the idea. But first they need to speed up Safari on Windows first. I haven't got a Mac (yet...) so I don't know if it runs faster on osx.

I would rather see Apple rewrite iTunes using a webkit interface. It would be resource lite and still capable via HTML5. iTunes is a hog as it now stands.They can have my jailbreak when they pry it from my cold dead fingers.

On Mac OS X I got rid of any web browsers other than Safari....When i used windows however I ONLY used Opera and occasionally Chrome. I don't like to have more than one main Web Browser....and on OS X I have found Safari to be the best (plus I hate a crowded Applications Folder).
Now, I actually like this idea, not sure exactly what they'd call it though. Think about it.....EVERYBODY uses iTunes, but not many people use Safari....so if people started using iTunes for the internet it would be the biggest web browser......hmmm....I like it.
But I think that statistics aren't whats important here.God Bless

Apple should make an "online bank" for people to store their music, apps, videos, photos to. They can login with their apple id and the bank would backup their iTunes library. They can call it iDriveNo confundas mi personalidad con mi actitud. Mi personalidad es quien soy yo, mi actitud depende de quien seas tú.

Where is any credible source for this information? The link here goes to Three Guys and a Podcast, but their article says nothing about any kind of source, and has no links. I mean, I understand it's a slow news week but that doesn't mean editors can just make sh*t up like this.

i see why they would want to do this to help safari out, but i would have to see a preview fist to decide if i would like it at allYou don't like the iPad because you don't have one!

This will never happen
Every time iTunes has an update for iDevices they would have to update Safari with it which would be alot more work
