Apple Steve Jobs just announced in his Macworld Keynote that Apple is releasing its own browser, called Safari. Its claim to fame is extremely fast performance on the Mac. The Mac platform has struggled from sluggish browser performance with IE (the old default browser). Update: According to Jobs, Safari is open source and based on khtml. It only runs on Mac OS X and will be available for download today.

I'm really enjoying Phoenix (based on the Mozilla core) on Windows... if my Mac could run OS X, I'd certainly want to see Phoenix there.

How do you define "fast" these days anyway? Renders local pages quickly? Doesn't hog your system or UI while waiting on remote servers? Tabbed browsing? Opens new windows quickly?
