Finland-based Nokia said it plans to continue working with Apple, headquartered in Cupertino, Calif., in enhancing the open-source browser.

Apple Safari is based on technology developed by KDE's "Konqueror" open-source project. KDE, or K Desktop Environment, is a group that has built a graphical user interface for Unix workstations, including computers running Linux. SOURCE
