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.

macos X, chimera and safari to me...

I've been using MacOS X everyday at work... and still a very painfull task sometimes... almost no keyboard navigation though the system and options, time's precious! specially if you're typing something and have to swith one hand to the mouse/tablet just to click a button everytime... and things like that...
That's also why Dock's very bad to switch between several browser windows (i use lots of then... =] ), you have to click on dock once, and then in the windows of the app... Chimera has a good work around for the problem with tabs (actually I don't use then in windows, prefer windows taskbar, but in MacOS X...)

Safari looks good, too dummy to me in some areas (no status bar, no tabs, auto-expand and auto-delete downloaded compressed files, SnapBack thing, bookmarks in diferente windows, and so on...), but... after all that's just MHO...
I'll probably stick with Chimera, but I'll give a try to Safari soon as I get at work.
It's good finally any browser from Apple to MacOS X... probably it'll make a lot of people happy... Well, let's take a better look later today...
