How Apple Safari Browser Got Its Name

Written By Sam on 22 December 2012

Safari is a web browser developed by Apple Inc. Though it’s now taken for granted, the Safari browser was almost named “Freedom”. Steve Jobs apparently considered a bunch of silly names for Apple’s browser that included Freedom, Alexander, and iBrowse before settling with Safari. Former Apple engineer Don Melton worked alongside Apple’s late co-founder Steve Jobs on Webkit project that would power the company’s own browser. When the time came to pick a name for the software, Steve started saying some names, the team considered a bunch of other names also and Steve eventually chose a name for Apple’s browser, Safari.
