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.

From what I heard when it first came out (Hyatt might have fixed it), if you serve up xhtml 1.0 with the correct mime type, Safari doesn't display it properly. If you serve it up with the html mimetype then it probably does. It's still an annoying hack. But that may have been fixed by now and if not it will probably be fixed before 1.0. I wouldn't put together hacks now.
