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.

You say that there is a noticeable speed difference, minor but you say there is, also you say that loading time is also faster, well that's what holds me back from using Chimera. I launch it, wait, and wait, Splash Screen, wait, it's done, wow it's pretty fast. I'm one of those people with a 1gb of RAM and a Dual G4 that doesn't like wasting resources by leaving programs open especially when running games. And I don't really feel the need at all to launch a browser like that everytime I want to view a webpage, it's painful watching it load like that IE loads faster than Chim.
