CNET News.com Opines on Apple's Choice of KHTML
Tuesday January 14th, 2003
CNET News.com 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.

I'm not sure how you could come to that conclusion based on Apple's selection of KHTML for Safari. I won't be surprised to see standalone KHTML-based browsers for *nix and Windows soon. Users want native interfaces and high performance. Witness Chimera.
And not only has Apple made QuickTime cross platform, it's open sourced the server!
