Apple Decides to Limit Its One-to-One Service to Safari Users Only

Gizmodo reader Paula E. B. wrote in with a screenshot, telling us that when she tried to renew with Apple's One-to-One customer bootcamp/training program, a notice popped up saying that One-to-One is now only supported by Safari—Apple's own web browser.


Paula is regularly a Firefox user and so found this latest rule to be rather prohibitive. A quick look around the Apple Support Communities revealed others have found themselves in a similarly frustrating position.

Sure, it's understandable that Apple would want to keep its customers as close as possible, rather than lose out to the like of IE, Firefox, or Chrome. But prohibiting a customer who has already bought their computer from Apple from using an outside web browser on said computer seems to cross over onto just the other side of extremely controlling.

Thanks, Paula!
