That would be a major change to contract law
Antitrust / monopoly regulations trump contracts in a number of cases already.
Doesn't even require Safari - there's a password assistant built into the OS, even though it's not exposed as an application.
For those wanting more than a vague hint: it's in the Keychain Access app. The New Password Item menu item brings up a dialog box that lets you generate a password matching various criteria.
If you don't send me $75,000 in bitcoins by noon Friday (CST), I will release the personal information of all Anonymous Cowards on Slashdot.

Nobody said there would be math in this comments section.
Next time, could we get some kind of warning?
Fortunately Gnome 2's gedit is alive and well in the form of the poorly-named xed (formerly Pluma). Still works very well and development is ongoing.
I know of quite a few people using Surface Pros and they love them. I've even heard of long-time mac users considering moving the Surface Pro. On the tablet, Windows 10 actually works pretty well. I recently bought an el cheap windows 10 tablet to do a bit of development on and it was surprising how usable it was. I still prefer my Android apps, but if you need to use traditional apps like MS office, they work surprisingly well on the tablet.
People still pay for that stuff? Why?
You do know there are streaming sites out there which remove all the commercials, offer closed captioning, and a selectable quality from 360p-1080p.
I would be totally cool with a working Netflix plugin for my linux-based Kodi installation. I have no problem handing Netflix a tenner every month just to get reliable access to the content they host.
This gets down to something that used to be a common UI design principle before software became so feature-ful it became impractical: manifest interface.
The idea of a manifest interface (which also is a principle in language and API design) is that if the software has a capability you should be able to see it. You shouldn't have to root around to stumble upon it. Tabs follow this principle; there's enough visual and behavioral cues to suggest that you need to click on a tab. The little "x" in the tab also follows this principle.
But context menus you access by right-clicking break this rule, which means that there may be millions of people laboriously clicking on "x" after "x", unaware that they can make all the extraneous tabs in their browser disappear with just two clicks.
This, by the way, is why Macintoshes were designed with one button on the mouse. But even Mac UI designers couldn't get by with just single and double-click, so you have option-click too, bit by in large you could operate most programs without it.
Anyhow, to make sure people know about this kind of feature, your program is going to have to watch their behavior and suggest they try right clicking. But that way lies Clippy...
Slashdot is... going down the toilet?
Nah, that happened long ago.
Now it's coming back up.
Thank you. This is what I sarcastically asked for. Of course climate ACG is real, except to Trump supporters.
Until they can show peer reviewed research showing climate change, I'm not believing it.
It's a Chinese hoax.
I'm glad we got that sorted out.
So... You are complaining because Trump has a large high profile family that now needs SS protection and THAT costs money?
I'm sure the FSB would be glad to send some guys over to look out for the extended Trump family.
I came here to say this, mostly.
I *know* that there are plenty of places in our software that I could spend an hour or two, and rewrite an algorithm to run in 1/5th the time. And I don't care at all, because the cost is too low to measure, and usually, performance bottlenecks are elsewhere.
Who really cares if I can get a loop to run in 800ns instead of 1500ns, when the real bottleneck is a complex SQL query 11 lines up that joins 11 tables together and takes 3 full seconds to run?
