    I'm glad it wasn't called Freedom. Safari is much better.

    I thought this article was going to explain the name. Instead it was more like "I remember the time we named our browser safari".

    I'd like some "Freedom" in iOS.

    I like iBrowse better than Safari.

    Safari is a good name. Connotes exploration, discovery. As a web browser should.

    Glad they didn't call it Freedom, Apple is anything but free, or freedom.
    Why would you ever use Safari though. Firefox/Chrome are MILES ahead...
    Safari Mobile Browser, is good, but the desktop version? No thanks.

    I use Safari and Chrome side-by-side. I find Safari to be way better than Firefox ever was on my Mac, and Chrome isn't as great as many believe it to be, in my experience.
