Location aware browsing is a new feature in modern browsers. It supplies your geographical location to any sites you visit. This information can be used by a web site to offer services near your place. For example, a pizza site can use your location to locate nearest pizza outlet. If you do not like this feature you can turn it off easily. Here is how :
- Run Apple Safari. On the top-right side, you would see a settings gears like icon. Click on it and select Options as shown
- In the Preferences window, select the Security tab.
- Uncheck the checkbox labeled Allow websites to ask for location information
- Close the Preferences window.
