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.

very fast, and good looking. NO TABS though.
The metallic look is very easy to get used to, the interface just gets out of your way. Also i believe the file size is ~7MB when uncompressed is because for one, all of the buttons are stored as tiffs, they could have used png, but might not have been as fast to display. Also it has rendezvous support so you can share bookmarks and such with no configuration. Plus it has the bug submit feature.

Nice options to configure also, pop up blocker, etc etc.

But no tabs. ;)
