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.

Ok, I'm testing it right now...

First of all, there's status bar... good (I don't click a link that I don't know where it will send me... =] ) It's always saying "Go to http://...", "Send e-mail to someone@somewhere...", "Run script..."... a kind of funny, but very usefull for starting users...
I got some problems acessing a https site, but it's a beta, so ok for now...
Unfortunally there's no shortcut to change between opened pages/windows...

About the SnapBack thing, I didn't test it yet, but you can mark a point to snapBack... so may could be actually usefull...

I've liked a of the Send bug feature... can send an screenshot of the current page and the url of that one... you can describe the problem very basically and so one...

Looks like could be a very good browser... but as it's for MacOS X... To me needs tabs... =]
