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.

More misguided anti-Apple attitudes. Thanks for proving me right -- again. First of all: What makes you think I use Apple products? Secondly, Apple have honored the LGPL as well as made a lot of bug fixes and enhancements on KHTML. They have posted a very descriptive change log, and there's even talk about joint development. So why should I complain about Apple? This is not bad for free software. The only complaints I've seen are from the Mozilla fanboys, like you, who are pissed off because Apple didn't choose Gecko.
