‘When I First Heard the Name Safari’

Dom Melton, who worked on the original Safari team:

During the Summer of ‘02, Steve Jobs and the Apple management team realized that we were going to pull this off — we could actually ship a Web browser by the end of the year. And at one particularly good Human Interface design session, discussion turned to what we were going to call this — thing.

Safari could have been called Freedom. I think we are all glad it wasn’t.
