More on rolling back from Safari 3 Beta

For a few unfortunate folks (remember, everyone, 'beta' means 'may do you wrong') the Safari 3 Beta installation has gone seriously off the rails. Inability to run the browser, inability to run other Apple apps that depend on WebKit... here there be dragons. If you can't run the bundled uninstaller mentioned earlier, you might take some comfort from this thread at Apple Discussions which indicates that the original WebKit and JavaScript frameworks, along with the Safari 2 app, are stowed away in /Library/Application Support/Apple/.SafariBetaArchive.tar.gz (the leading . means the file won't show up by default in the Finder, but you can get at it from Terminal). Check out the posts for suggestions on how to roll back gracefully.
