Oracle has now started bundling the Ask toolbar on OS X (Mac computers) now. They've re-done their installer to include this feature. https://jamfnation.jamfsoftware.com/discussion.html?id=13567

What took them so long to bundle it under OS X?

The time that it took to port the Ask toolbar to OS X, I suppose.

I'm surprised it took so long for Ask.com to port their toolbar to OS X since it's been around for ages now. Looks like the folks on Jamfnation are going crazy about it :P

How do I remove the Ask Toolbar or Search Apps from a web browser in Mac OS X?
