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.

Even when alternative browsers existed there were banks and governments that required IE since the Windows install base was so large.

As the Mac base grew those organizations felt more pressure to replace IE dependent services.
