After discovering Linux, Harri joined the "KDE" project, where he eventually implemented a JavaScript interpreter – this interpreter was adopted for use in KDE's web browser "Konqueror", and is now also used by Apple in its Safari browser, and served as the starting point for WebKit's JavaScript interpreter.
