Apple "By the time I reached my office, I liked the name. Really liked it. I was committed. I could imagine seeing 'Safari' in the Mac OS X dock. I had to tell the team right away and, if necessary, convince them that they liked it too. Fortunately, and to their credit, they didn't need much convincing." Like I said - I love stories like this. Never liked the name 'Safari', though.

I guess iBrowse was never really an option since a browser with that name existed already for some years on the Amiga:

Yes, I remembered that too. Sad to see it died.

It should still be on my Amiga 1200.

That didn't really stop Apple with http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linksys_iPhone or http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cisco_IOS
