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.

I was waiting for Steve Jobs to develop something to replace the horrible excuse of a internet browser, Internet Explorer. I don't know what Microsoft was thinking when designing and programming IE, but the Apple version was bad. I could never get a page to load correctly at all, it would always push text off the page, and load images where it wanted within the page.

I just loaded Safari, and thus far I love it. I'm inches away from totally deleting IE off my powerbook. But Safari is only a beta, so better be careful. Anyway, this browser has the best of Netscape, Microsoft, and Opera pushed all into one amazing piece of software. Much better then any linux browser I've worked with. I am very greatful Apple made this move. Even if they charge for this software, it is well worth the money!
