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 hear that in future releases of mozilla gecko will be able to render 3d movies from still images and do that really cool sci-fi image enhance trick on images on webpages. it will also give your computer the ability to fly.... come on, of course khtml will get better as time goes on, as will opera, gecko, etc. the only true way to compare two pieces of software is to compare them *now* ... comparing the cyber future of a product is useless. mozilla is the most standards compliant browser out there AFAIK.
