Requiem for a rendering engine
"""Having laid out these feats of strength, it is time to remind everyone of the most shocking fact about iCab: all of this was done by one person, Alexander Clauss.
In spite of all the obstacles the modern web threw at browser developers, the fact that one man could single-handedly write an entire rendering engine that “kept up with the Jonses” and ran natively on Mac OS 8.5-Mac OS X 10.5 inclusive is nothing short of miraculous."""
As my friend Jamie Halmick once told me, it's all about the German engineering.
