Apple has a new web browser, Safari, that seems pretty fast. Too bad I cannot use it because it does not have tabs.
If you want to work with its cookies file, which shows up in "~/Library/Application Support" for some reason, HTTP::Cookies::Safari can do it. The module is on its way to a CPAN mirror near you, and on SourceForge. I still need to work out a couple of things with dates, but it is mostly there.
