    The reason I would like to do this is to replace it with SkyFire. It is a much more superior Web browser that I would prefer to use and I hate having two browsers on my iphone so is there any way of ridding the out of date browser for good?

    If you're jailbroken, delete /Applications/MobileSafari.app by using iPhone Explorer or SSHing into your iPhone.

    I currently have WinSCP. Is iPhone explorer better than WinSCP in any way?

    iPhone Explorer doesn't use SSH; rather than manage your files over your local network, it lets you manage your iPhone's files over a USB cable.

    Either one will work fine for deleting Safari. But if you're already familiar with SSH, simply go that route. [​IMG]

    I would personally simply hide it with SBsettings. Simpler, faster and it's still available if you need it one day.

    Skyfire is great but I hate it when it says Live when your watching a video (can't seek).

    I suggest this as well, it's not on any of your homescreen pages, neither is it in a map icon.
    It's gone, but still available if you need it for something.
