Comment on "Simple Truths About Cross-Platform Apps"
by Marcos — Mar 21
I totally agree about Firefox vs. Camino/Safari. Firefox is not a Mac application, and I avoid it for that reason. I prefer Safari, and when I need Gecko, I use Camino. But a Mac application needs to support Mac features and that means a) Keychain, b) address book, c) proper drag and drop, d) proper Aqua-widgets, etc.

I know some people don't care about this or like that Firefox is the same on all platforms, but I'm not using all platforms - I'm using a Mac and for a reason. So, why would I use an App that really isn't a Mac app?
