During its presentation on OS X Mountain Lion, Apple unveiled a new version of Safari that'll improve your desktop browsing experience. The new Safari will have the "fastest javascript engine of any browser on the planet" and "lightning fast page loading," said Craig Federighi during the WWDC keynote. A new scrolling architecture based on Core Animation will deliver smooth-as-silk scrolling.

Besides improving the rendering engine, Safari will have a new tab syncing feature that'll show you all the pages you have open across all devices. Apple also added several multitouch gestures (swipe and pinch/zoom) that'll let you move between tabs. And it that isn't enough, there's also a very Chrome-ish smart search field that'll let you search right in your browser address bar.
