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.

Duh! Apple's always been a hardware company. Their main business is selling personal computers. They also make software for their computers to encourage users to buy their computers. They've been in business over 25 years and have consistently been among the top personal computer makers, so I would hesitate before calling their business decisions into question!!! ;-)
