apple cheats -- fails at open

While claiming the banner of open source with WebKit, Apple continues to disadvantage their competitors with undocumented APIs that only their apps can take full advantage of.

Despite this (somewhat expected) Apple perfidy, Firefox 3 on Mac is going to rock bigtime! It's fast as hell. It uses less RAM than the competition. It's gorgeous. And it's honestly open, unlike Safari and WebKit.

You want to build something on Mac with WebKit? I'd encourage you to re-evaluate. Apple isn't going to play fair with you. This isn't speculation. It's happening today.
