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."

Please... have you even compared Safari to Chimera? Im sorry but Chimera is FAR from slow. Even when Safari DOES manage to beat Chimera, its not by much, except for the cold start time. Chimera is still in development too though, and they can still get the start time down before 1.0, in fact the latest version is already much improved in that respect from the previous. Add to all that the technological and feature superiority of Mozilla... well Im not to interested in Safari. At LEAST they need tabs!!
