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.

Yeah, among the "top" computer makers eh? Apple is a niche market and always will be, especially given their current movements. Windows PCs have over 90 percent of the PC market; saying Apple has a spot among the top players in that market is just silly. Dell, IBM, Gateway, HP (and Compaq) all completely DWARF Apple in sales. They are NOT a top player, and haven't been since the 1980s. Sorry.
