When I first heard the name “Safari”

Don Melton, Retired Apple Engineer recalls the process of selecting the name for the Mac Browser.

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.

Of course, all I could think about was, “Please don’t let us name the browser after a feminine hygiene product!”

Go to his blog and read the entire thing, very interesting.
