CNET Opines on Apple's Choice of KHTML

Tuesday January 14th, 2003

CNET has an article about Apple's choice of KHTML over Gecko for its Safari browser. Featuring a variety of quotes from many high profile figures, the article goes as far as to call the decision a "snub" — a claim that Apple's spokesperson refuses to corroborate.

Update! Mike Shaver isn't too happy about being quoted out of context and Chris Blizzard also has some choice words about the article. MozillaZine founder Chris Nelson isn't quite so subtle. There's also a discussion at Slashdot.

exactly what i've been saying to my friends. furthermore... THIS IS A GOOD THING FOR MOZILLA. Period. Full Stop. KHTML is a much more standards compliant renderer than ie's, anything that pushes web designers towards full standards support is great news for mozilla. Mozilla now has a very very powerful ally in Apple.
