Federico Viticci wrote an in-depth article about why he left Chrome and returned to Safari on his iOS devices. One comment I’d like to add to his piece is about using Reading List. I’ve been using Safari’s built-in read later feature too and I kind of like it. I suppose it’s as much for the convenience of having my saved articles available across all devices as it is for the feature itself. I do use Instapaper and have the apps, but sometimes it’s just easier to have everything in one app.
Safari for iOS was responsible for 61.79% of total mobile internet traffic during the month of March, an increase from 55.41% in February. Safari’s closest competitor for mobile browser dominance was Google’s Android browser, which had a 21.86% share of Web traffic in March.
Once again this brings up the obvious question — what are all the Android people doing with their phones?

And for the entire six minutes and 32 seconds that Steve used Safari on stage, I don’t remember taking a single breath. I was thinking about that network failure during rehearsal and screaming inside my head, “Stay online, stay online!” We only had one chance to make a first impression.

Fascinating story from Don Melton about how he hid Safari in plain sight while developing the 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. And, just as possible and positive, it spoke to our own freedom from Microsoft and Internet Explorer, the company and browser we depended on at the time.
I just love these types of stories.
