Delete Safari.app In El Capitan

October 2, 2015 at 18:49:43
Specs: Macintosh
I was able to delete safari.app in Yosemite with a shredder app. Now not only does that not work, but I cant even add myself in permissions after unlocking them, to then shred/delete.
I don't like safari shoved down my throat & messing with "opens with" in Firefox's own folders. While changing this in Firefox is simple for me, I don't like the idea of it all ...so I'd like to skip responses asking why, or unqualified "you can't". Please be so kind as to either not respond or simply tell me how you figured out how to delete safari.app in El Capitan. Much thanks in advance ~

Tried the method you pointed to on osxdail.com: In Terminal: cd /Applications/, sudo rm -rf Safari.app/ but got the "not permitted" on all actions. Granted the article was from 2012, but was worth a try... anyone got anything that specifically works on El Capitan?

I've searched every site I could find and they all say it can't be deleted from El Capitan because so many applications are tied to it. I guess you'll have to live with it or revert back to Yosemite. I know you didn't want to hear that, but seems like that's the way it has to be.
