Dave Hyatt (June 28, 1972) is an American Software Engineer employed by Apple Inc. (since July 15, 2002), where he is part of the development team responsible for the Safari web browser and WebKit framework. Hyatt was part of the original team that shipped the beta releases and 1.0 release of Safari. He is the Safari and WebKit Architect.
Before Apple, Hyatt worked at Netscape Communications from 1997 to 2002 where he contributed to the Mozilla web browser. While at Netscape, he also created Camino (then known as Chimera) and co-created Firefox (originally called Phoenix) with Blake Ross. He is credited with the implementations of tabbed browsing for Chimera and Firefox (the initial implementation for Netscape/Mozilla browsers, on which Hyatt based his work was created by HJ van Rantwijk, as part of his MultiZilla project at multizilla.mozdev.org).
Hyatt developed, but no longer maintains, the software for Shadowland Six in his spare time; a forum and discussion server for the Shadowrun community. He also co-wrote published material for Shadowrun as a freelance writer, including the books Renraku Arcology: Shutdown and Brainscan.
