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.

Safari is actually much slower than Chimera 0.6.0 with "Pipelining" turned on. Steve used a version of Chimera with "Pipelining" turned off for Apple's benchmarks. It also has a boatload of HTML element violations, and client-space rendering quirks. It is a beta without question.
