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.

I've heard one of these guys runs a web site called Mozilla Blubber, which sole purpose is to bash Mozilla and the community that surrounds it. It seems that the guy didn't leave Netscape "voluntarily," (as in he was fired), and that he's done everything that he can to try and get back at them. Apparently, one of the ways he came up with was signing up with Apple to create Safari, a potential rival to Gecko-based browsers. What a loser.
