Three guys and a podcast are saying that Apple is planning on combining Safari and iTunes into one unholy amalgamation, with iTunes functioning as an entirely cloud based service, within the app:
It is believed that Safari will be the only browser able to access iTunes, as iTunes is built into the browser itself. “Moving iTunes organizational side-bar into Safari isn’t a monumental task” claimed a source, adding “Safari would skyrocket in use as a result of integrating the software titles together.”
They’re claiming that this will happen at Apple’s Fall iTunes event.
I call BS. We’re all hoping that Apple unveils iTunes.com or something similar in the near future, but making it Safari only? That would be suicide.
