As we noted earlier this morning, Apple's Mac Store guidelines have been revealed, including the long list of apps Apple plans to reject. While some developers will jump at the chance for exposure a Mac App Store provides, not everyone in the industry is happy about the news - least of all, Mozilla Firefox chief Mike Beltzner. For him, Apple's version of a desktop-based Mac App Store is especially disturbing.
In fact, Beltzer accused Apple as attempting to "bypass the Web" altogether.
After hearing Steve Jobs speak at the press conference, Beltzer tweeted, "I wonder when Apple will stop shipping Safari. It's obvious already from today's keynote that they're looking to bypass the web."
