MacSlash reports that Apple's Safari seed program has been closed. The report quotes a letter from the mothership:
"Due to Safari 67 postings to the internet, we have closed the Safari Seed project. We know that the majority of you are not responsible for the leaks to the internet, and we sincerely appreciate your feedback, time and effort with this project."
Unreleased beta versions of Safari are widely available across the internet. The most recent developer release, Safari 67, began showing up on the public internet within hours of it being made available to developers.
Editor's note: This development shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone. The wide availability of unreleased Safari betas has irked a handful of Mac pundits, like Your Mac Life's Shawn King, and delighted nearly everyone else.
