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.

One additional thing that is easily overlooked happened at the very moment.

Years of FUD spread against usage of LGPL code in proprietary products want up in a puff of smoke.

What FUD against LGPL? I've seen both FUD and legitimate concerns about the effect the GPL has on proprietary software that links to it, but never LGPL, for the simple reason that the LGPL was created in response to the FUD.

But, I've never seen anti-LGPL FUD. Is that a real thing?
