Apple has ended its relationship with Netscape, under which some of the latter companies content was on display on the default Safari home page, introducing an all-Apple page instead.
The new page launched overnight. It dispenses with such features as a ticker-tape style CNN news headlines, and replaces it with new Apple content: direct links to iPod and iMac sales on the Apple Store; information about the company's retail plans and more.
The page is also populated by iTunes Top Songs; easy-access guides to system and .Mac features; forthcoming events and Apple Hot News stories. There are also links to XML feeds of Mac OS X third-party product information and Hot News tales.
Visitors to the old start page are now redirected to the new page.
