giel's Journal: Apple release Safari, a browser based on Konqueror 2

Journal by giel

A few minutes ago I submitted this article to /., but it was rejected - too bad, I don't know why. Perhaps someone else did submit something covering the same topic... Well, for those who are interested, here it is:

Apple releases a new internet browser for MacOS X, named Safari. It's based on an improved version of the engine of KDE's Konqueror and it's specs look very good. Apple seems to plan on releasing Safari in the future as an opensource product. An interesting question might be whether or not this will force Microsoft to release the source of Internet Exporer. More articles can be found at macworld.com and ZDNet zdnet.co.uk and zdnet.com.

    It's still interesting though - I guess - to wonder if this will do anything to the closedsourceness of Internet Explorer...

      The words 'not', 'one' and 'jot' spring to mind. :)

      Can't comment on Safari, as I'm a Windows person.
