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.

#87 Welcome to the Mozilla zealot la-la land...

...where everyone who criticises the Mozilla project is a sacked Netscape employee, or has a hidden agenda!

Hate to burst your bubble, but I'm not "Jenny". (I don't even know who she is.) However, your reply illustrates my point. The crazed sect mentality is indeed alive and well in the Mozilla community. I wonder why this kind of lunacy runs rampant here, but not on KDE Dot News... No, wait... actually, I don't. But by all means, keep up the good work at driving away everyone but the Mozilla zealots! It will only make Mozilla worse. See if I care.
