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.

Good news from MacWorld

Apple continues to put together a great package for Mac buyers. The integration of the iApps is another good step forward.

I think the 12" PowerBook is going to be red hot.

Safari- I've been using all evening and it definitely is beta. I, like many, was surprised they didn't go with Gecko. But, now Mac users have a nice duo with Chimera and Safari. Both will continue to improve and everyone wins.

Some of the things announced today are stunning. But, it is also stunning what was not announced...upgraded iMacs, the expansion of the iPod or a new digital lifestyle device. I think there are going to be announcements about these types of things, mayber even later this month (I hope). I really think this is going to be a big year for OS X and Apple generally.
