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.

The good thing is that Apple had a choice. To have two opensource browser engines available is wonderful and Apple's choice will surely give the KHTML engine a boost, making it better over time. Apple decided and took KHTML. Instead of bitching about this it would be a lot wiser to maybe draw conclusions and find out where Gecko needs improvement.
