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.

Still, KHTML was the second browser to pass ACID2 (after safari) test and those unmanageable patch did help a little. But yes, WebKit made the real step forward. The KHTML devs may hate this, but WebKit _is_ the future of web browser.
