Okay, I myself am an avid Phoenix and Mozilla user, but I believe the main point of using khtml was for speed. I noticed that in the browser comparison there was no real mention of which one was 'faster', except that the benefits of both Chimera and Safari are speed. Considering that Apple previously copped a lot of flack from users about how slow OSX is with browsing, I think they are trying to address that problem head on. Plus, this software is prerelease. Yes the comparison is good, but this is still early days for Safari. Early days for Chimera too I'm sure. Apple obviously did an extensive analysis of their alternatives and made a decision based on that. I very much doubt they just picked one engine out of a hat and went with it.

Take care everyone, Mike
