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 have watched Macs and PC's on the same network, and neither has a speed advantage browsing-wise. But of existing browsers, I most prefer (under OS X) Mozilla, because it has a killer feature set (pop-up killing; tabbed browsing; VERY solid standards support; etc) and IS a little faster than the rest I have tried (I was holding off on Chimera until verion 0.9 or so).
