Safari a bloatware?

If you've been using Safari for windows then you might have come across in auto-update in which it recommends you to download iTunes and Quicktime Player, which is good for some but not for all though. According to Firefox developers the browser is trying to promote the software other than the user intended to know about. Hence making it a bloatware.
According to the Firefox developers :-
"It's wrong because it undermines the trust that we're all trying to build with users. Because it means that an update isn't just an update, but is maybe something more. Because it ultimately undermines the safety of users on the Web by eroding that relationship. It's a bad practice and should stop."
I for personally hate malicious activities running in my programs other than I intended what do you think about the Safari's approach?
