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.

Wonder why they didn't go with Gecko

Strange that Apple didn't go with the Gecko renering engine.

The GPL can be a issue for compaines like Apple (BSD tends to be the prefered)

David Hyatt works for apple now (dude that does phenoix and Chimera)

Chimera kicks ass

Supporting the Mozilla project would piss M$ off even more.
