In reply to a post by Gypsydog:
Chrome should really be discussed in the Apple forum, seeing as Apple wrote it.

??? I know Apple wrote Safari, after all it is their browser, but as Chrome is Google's browser I assumed that Google wrote it.

Are you saying that Apple wrote it for Google???
In the world of competing browsers and the associated advertising revenues, I find that difficult to believe.
I would genuinely be obliged if you could point me towards the relevant evidence.
That's right, Apple wrote it. Ask in the Apple forum.



I think they use something applely to produce it as if you look you can see some things that are the same as safari in the GUI.

WebKit was originally derived by Apple Inc. from the Konqueror browser's KHTML software library for use as the engine of Safari web browser


That what I was thinking of Apple Webkit

So it's just another Webkit wrapper, written by apple.

I don't care who wrote it as long as it is safe and works and that it does.

So discuss it in another thread, preferably in the Apple forum.



You the mod now are you? I got a windows machine not a Apple machine. i would love a Apple machine but after paying out nearly a grand for a new PC build i don't think a Apple Mac will be on my list for a while.


Mozilla need to see where they are going wrong with Firefox and then fix it. I been using Firefox for years, since it was Phoenix and before that I used Netscape. so I have used it long enough to know that it is not as good as it once was.

Huh? They've contributed heavily to it for sure, but webkit is an open source project (previously KHTML). To say its purely Apple is fairly insulting to the many other companies and individuals who have contributed their time to it.

That may be your opinion, but my point is the discussion of Chrome is out of place in a Windows forum in a Firefox thread.

Just downloaded firefox 9 beta, not that impressed to be honest, I know it is a beta, but I don't think much will change. A couple of my add ons will not work, no surprise there.

Mozilla once again have lost the plot, shame really.

Back to Iron/chrome,
