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.

From http://www.barnard.columbia.edu/at/training/netscape/update/detect....

The browser that you are using:
The browser is Netscape
The version is 5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en-us) AppleWebKit/48 (like Gecko) Safari/48
The codename is Mozilla

Guess this will probably show up as Mozilla most places. I don't see anything new on http://66.181.171.71/2/42699/400/?password=&sub_page=0&date=0&extra... except the fact that Mozilla is leading so far today (but that seems to usually happen early in the day (PST)).
