Mozilla's Beltzer Says Apple Trying to 'Bypass the Web' [nytimes.com]
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."

I bypassed mac myself. They sure won't convince me to rethink by alienating themselves further.

Listen up big CEO's - apps are cool but even app users stay in touch with the rest of the web.

Where do most attacks come from? The web; What's everyone worried about these days? Attacks; Makes sense to bypass it all if you've got the resources to create your own ecosystem.
