Apple After relying on third parties for several years - Internet Explorer, Netscape - Apple decided that it was time to take matters into its own hands. It was time Apple created its own browser (again). And so, Safari was born, and released unto the world ten years ago. These past few weeks, Don Melton, the project lead for Safari and WebKit, has been sharing a lot of interesting stories about the origins and development of Apple's browser.

Hmmmm... I used Camino back in the day and that was pretty usable and never seemed slow.

Camino was pretty good, but all mac browsers were slower than the windows version of Internet Explorer.

I may have been a little harsh before. IE for the mac was a good browser though I preferred Netscape at the time.

I remember Netscape and IE being horrible under Mac OS 9, but I only used OS X regularly from Jaguar onwards. I can't remember if IE was still around by that point. Camino under Panther was very pleasant from what I remember. Though, I'm sure it would seem slow now.
