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.

Absolutely. It's hard enough sites to work with mozilla. Does anyone think web developers will work to ensure their sites with something that only runs on mac and linux? Mozilla is the best choice because of its wide range of standard support, real world website support and platform support. I'll reconsider when Apple comes out with Safari for Windows but I'm not holding my breath
