Apple After relying on third parties for several years - Internet Explorer, Netscape - Apple decided that it was time to take matters into its own hands. It was time Apple created its own browser (again). And so, Safari was born, and released unto the world ten years ago. These past few weeks, Don Melton, the project lead for Safari and WebKit, has been sharing a lot of interesting stories about the origins and development of Apple's browser.

We must not forget what happened after WebKit was released. Remember that WebKit code was usually released as a set of huge, unmanageable patches that couldn't help the KHTML team. After the KHTML folks complained, the WebKit project started being more community-friendly. This is the bit worth praising and indeed it deserves praise.
