When It Isn't For Money

Chimera developer Mike Pinkerton blogs that he's uncertain whether to keep going now that Apple has released Safari.

"Perhaps," he writes, "what is more disappointing is that my fifteen minutes of fame are just about up and I've really got nothing to show for it."

Which is a real shame.

Chimera's a pretty good browser, and its developers have done Mac users a real service by salvaging Gecko from the rest of Mozilla. Safari has a ways to go, and we can be almost guaranteed that the finished product will suffer from at least a few Apple-dictated blind spots.

Hopefully he and the other developers will keep at it. Maybe I should keep an eye out for more bug report material.
