This is one browser that is dedicated to the Mac Operating System. For the general public, Macintoshes have always been computers that you want to own, but not necessarily use for work. However, there are a niche set of users who swear by the Macintosh for their daily tasks.

Safari was a browser that toppled Internet Explorer as the default browser in the Macintosh. It made its debut on June 23, 2003 and was the default browser in the OS X v 10.3 operating system.With the release of Mac OS X v10.4, Safari is the only Web
browser included with the operating system.

Safari uses Apple’s WebKit application framework for rendering Web pages and for running JavaScript. WebKit is comprised of two other frameworks which are WebCore an HTML parser based on KHTML and JavaScriptCore which is based on KJS. The Safari browser is a delight to use. It has a bookmark management scheme, contains the integrated Apple QuickTime multimedia technology (obviously!) and also features tabbed browsing. The Google search engine box is the default search engine for the browser. Other features include software that automatically fill out Web forms and spell check entries into Web page text fields. The latest version of Safari was released on April 29, 2005 and includes a built in RSS and Atom reader. It also includes a private browsing mode (which does not record any information of your Web visit) and Parental Controls. It now also has the ability for saving Web sites completely as Web Archives.

In this section, we have talked about browsers from the past and those available currently. A browser, as mentioned earlier, is the first gateway to the Internet for any user across the planet— irrespective of the OS used. Browser evolution is a constant and consistent process, and newer browsers such as Avant and Deepnet provide more functionality to your browsing without weighing down your computer resources. For now, you should choose the browser that best suits your needs.
