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.

rajan: "When will Mac zealots just give up and give PC's it's due?"

Actually, we do it all the time: windows PCs are cheaper, windows PCs are faster, windows PCs have more games, windows PCs have the more unusual software titles (for lack of a better term). there

But we don't care about the money, the speed is fast enough (and we've just had a rough patch here that will be ending), we don't play games all day and finally, the last one is the only one that really matters - it's the only downside I can possibly find to the mac. But it has lots of software PC users can only hope for at some date in the future

Linux is a separate issue. I like linux a ton because it, not the mac, is the only hope for dealing with MS the big fat monopoly that makes crud.
