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.

Small text ...

One more thing I forgot to add: Small text is *far* more legible in Safari than in Gecko-based browsers (Mozilla 1.1/1.2, and Chimera 0.6.0, and the latest stable nightly that the Chimera team recommends over 0.6.0). This makes reading pages far easier, as I prefer smaller text sizes.
