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.

>Kind of like a lightning-fast supercomputer that whips the P4 on specially contrived benchmarks? I hope that this is not simply more old-school marketing hype.

To use KHTML (or, for that matter, Gecko) and end up with a slower browser that the oh-it's-dead-slow IE for Mac would be a BIG FAT shame for Apple.
