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'm not going to say that Apple have no competitive egde. Their userbase obviously bought Apple for some of their own reasons. My point is that you complain about us complaining about Apple, but you complain a lot about PCs and Microsoft.

Besides, I like Linux because of its unique capabilities, not because I hate Microsoft. I don't hate Microsoft. Albeit if I was running Microsoft, a lot of things would change and those changes would bring in even more profit without pissing off customers..

Besides, I can't comment on how good Safari is because I haven't used it. But the fact that it is a brush metal app turns me down almost completely. And if what they say is true that tabs don't exist on Safari, there is practically nothing to go celebrating for.

Besides, to note, all the software I use have a version for the Mac, and I hardly play games (well, hardly is a understatement...). I use PCs mainly because I can decide how good it is made. What parts should I use. But ultimately for speed.

Even now, I want to get a faster machine.
