Don Melton, describing the brainstorming meeting when trying to name the browser now known as Safari:
As I remember, Steve just started saying some names out loud…I don’t recall all the names, but one that stands out is “Freedom.” Steve spent some time trying that one out on all of us. He may have liked it because it invoked positive imagery of people being set free.
Safari is such a perfect name, I can’t imagine it being anything else. Let alone Freedom.
