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 loading time for it was great... a lot faster than Chimera. In terms of browing speed, it seems to be faster than Chimera, but they are pretty close. I wish tabs were there, but snapback is pretty nice itself. I can't decide which one I like better. Also, Ithink safari's interface and rendering is a bit cleaner than Chimera, but i guess that's personal tastes.
