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.

Mozilla developers all seem to agree that the KHTML code is cleaner and simpler than the corresponding Mozilla code. Cleaner, simpler code will tend to be smaller and faster, and easier to modify to add features or optimize if needed. You are right -- KHTML could suddenly become a tangled mess of code with all kinds of unnecessary complexity -- but I'll but it won't! ;-)
