Use Find my iPhone/Mobile Me on an iPhone/iPod touch

You make good points. It seems logical to me, based on your points, that Apple should make the service work the same, not best, on Safari.

As you rightly point out, when your iPhone/iTouch is lost, you may not have a choice about what browser or computer you must use for "Find My iPhone." So why make it harder on customers? I see no benefit (to customers) of making it work better on Safari, but I do see benefit in making sure it works for you on many browser/computer setups.

While the consumer would see no immediate benefit from this working better on Safari; Apple operates under the business presumption that product tie-in is always better - thus I assume that they would still find some what to attempt to get users to access this with Safari but suggest that they consider providing an easily accessible site that has non-existent browser requirements to be able to access the service, e.g. or could work with any browser while and an iPhone app would provide a superior experience for users who have no such resources at their disposal.
