In response to my rantings yesterday, David Hyatt has stated unequivocally that the Safari team did not, in fact, co-opt Netscape evangelism efforts during development. I’m really very glad to hear that’s the case, and if I hadn’t had such a bad day Tuesday, I probably wouldn’t have mentioned the rumor in the first place. Then again, the end result of my ranting is a negative rumor laid to rest, so perhaps it was all for the best. That’s what I’ll tell myself to feel better about the whole situation, anyway.
To make it formal: I apologize for casting any unwarranted aspersions on the Safari team, Apple, etc. With any luck this will help stamp out the rumors that were reaching me.
On to more trivial matters! This is quite possibly the coolest review I’ve yet received:
Last year, I watched “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” and I was amazed at the swordsmanship on display. Swords were no longer weapons, but extensions of arms – as if they were new appendages grown especially for the task. Eric Meyer can wield CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) in just the same way as those actors could wield swords.
