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.

Why does it need to be cross-platform? As long as they make a browser that is good and standards compliant can't you be happy?

BTW the idea of their iApps and services is to attract people to the mac platform. If they gave them to windows users why would windows users buy a mac?

Quicktime is on windows because they want people to use it. If it isn't widely used then there is no point to it. Their iApps don't need to be standard.

You really need a good dose of logic.
