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.

Konqueror rocks! No surprise they choose KHTML over Gecko. Sure, Gecko is currently the most complete open source rendering engine out there (when it comes to standards support), but it is s-l-o-w. KHTML is very fast, and standards support is good:

...and getting better by the minute. It will be fun seeing the Mozilla fanboys cringe over this one, and make up lame excuses. But the truth is that Gecko sucks, and it will always suck, thanks to the morons behind the "Mammothzilla"-project.
