A CUPERTINO SAFARI
It's Macworld Expo time again, when Apple rolls out its new toys. Great fun!

While Cupertino Steve didn't deliver on the much-rumored video iPod, he did spring one curveball: Safari, Apple's very own browser. It's a curious move. Internet Explorer is the world's default browser--the world being Windows-based, of course. I guess Safari can establish itself on the Mac, but then what? It'll fly only if it's packaged free with the Mac OS. I can't see why anyone would want to pay for it. All it'll really accomplish is making a bunch of web developers mad at having to code for an alternate browser platform.
