Apple Steve Jobs just announced in his Macworld Keynote that Apple is releasing its own browser, called Safari. Its claim to fame is extremely fast performance on the Mac. The Mac platform has struggled from sluggish browser performance with IE (the old default browser). Update: According to Jobs, Safari is open source and based on khtml. It only runs on Mac OS X and will be available for download today.

I am using KDE for many years now. O.K., there are some geeks that think KDE is not cool, but for me it is the best user interface available for Linux. One of the reasons I really like KDE is the fact, that Konqueror integrates very nicely with the rest of KDE. And furthermore, Konqueror is fast and since I am using KDE3.0/3.1 i did not encounter a single web page Konqueror could not display. The essential point is: a lot more people are developping gecko than khtml. Nevertheless, Konqueror is almost as good as Mozilla (maybe as good). Why is this? In my opinion, because the KDE Apis and frameworks are very well designed. I think it is a very good choice that Apple uses khtml. On the one hand khtml is small and fast, on the other hand, is is very nicely designed. And both, Apple, and KDE profit from this. So stop blaming Apple for making the wrong choice. They probably decided absolutely right!
