Safari’s Keynote

Don Melton:

Everyone was clapping that Apple embraced open source. Happy, happy, happy. And they were just certain what was coming next. Then Steve moved a new slide onto the screen. With only one word, “KHTML” — six-foot-high white letters on a blue background.

If you listen to that video I posted, notice that no one applauds here. Why? I’m guessing confusion and complete lack of recognition.

I found my second post about Safari, and it’s a shame that so many of the linked pages have disappeared. (My first post was about how to remove the brushed metal.) At this point I should retract my comment that “the SnapBack feature is actually useful.” It seemed like a great idea at the time, but I stopped using it long ago.
