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.

And to think some people get on my case for defending the Mozilla community? SIGH!!

Let's face it: This Safari browser was started by a bunch of disgruntled ex-Netscape employees who can't get over the fact that they were fired, and they thought the best way to get back at their former employer was to create another browser. Funny, how you can only use it on Apple computers. It's also funny how Steve Jobs is telling a bunch of lies about how much better his new browser is. Really? Unlike Mozilla, Safari doesn't have tabbed browsing. It also does a pathetic job of rendering web pages. Those people over at the Konqueor project obviously flunked a bunch of computer programming classes, because it look like they don't know what the hell they're doing. Safari is Mozilla's bitch. One who should bow down to his master. He is the king. ;-)
