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.

The Apple way vs. The Linux way

Apple has too much of an ego to contribute too much intellectual property back to the community. I don't believe they would unless they were required to by law. Its just not profitable for them. All that aside, Apple is a good company.

Linux on the other hand wants to give EVERYTHING away for free, because it knows that it is not perfect. It has no ego. And it doesn't care about money. All that aside, Linux is a good community.
