    Weird question I know but something I've wondered for a long time. How did Safari get it's name?

    One of the few major pieces of Apple software that isn't just named after some obvious feature of its functionality (eg. Pages, Numbers, Mail, Maps, Messages, Notes, Contacts, News, Books iTunes, FaceTime, iMovie, Home, Photos, etc). Garage Band is another example of an app with a slightly more freeform name.
