Google protects Mac users whether they need it or not

Google loves me,

This I know:

Into bad sites

I shall not go.

In Safari, I may surf

But Google keeps me from bad turf.

Mac were made for fools like me

But Google keeps them malware free.

Not just Safari, but FireFox too.


Also, not just that page, but looks like the entire site.

This feature works on any browser, not just Macs.


Question is, what website were you trying to access that was deemed harmful! :)

Ben: The link is on the full-sized image. Lyrics to a song from Annie ("Maybe Baby")

I was sure the tune was "Jesus loves me". Since Google is our modern all-powerful oracle, I thought it made sense.

Aread: You're right. I was riffing on "Jesus loves me". But the original song I was trying to get lyrics to, that Google didn't want me to get, was from Annie.


I hope that makes more sense.
