Shiira is basically a copy of Safari, with a few new features added in. It's built on Apple's web kit. Obviously it looks and works a lot like Safari, but I do like the bookmark/history drawer better than the bookmark management window Apple provides in Safari.<br><br>But the one nice feature is the ability to have tabs expand in width to fit the title of the page on them completely.<br><br>A nice start... hell, they're still in beta and it's already better than Opera and iCab.<br><br>

I'd consider iCab long-time 6-feet under and RIP.<br><br>

You can also do it with zero lines of code if you connect the URL field directly to the WebKit pane. Enter an URL and press enter.<br><br>
