Naming the New Browser at Apple

Don Melton, who lead the Safari and WebKit projects at Apple, has a very interesting story to share today about what went on at Apple when it came to naming the then unnamed project.

To this day, I don’t know who suggested the name “Safari.” I wasn’t in the room when the heavens split asunder and angels sounded forth as a choir singing that three-syllable benediction. But I had been part of the naming discussion before. Several times.
