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.

Browser emulation
by ~CdBee~ on Wed 8th Jan 2003 07:54 UTC

Can Safari emulate MSIE for compatibility purposes? I find a lot of sites don't like Opera when set to identify as such - although ID'ing as MSIE5 gets by just fine.

For example, signing into eBay with a Passport.. yes I know I should know better! - doesnt work with Opera 6 unless I set ID as MSIE
