Safari is a great browser, and by far the best on the mac, but it's not perfect. Thankfully Apple released the internal rendering engine for anyone to write their own browser interface around, and Shiira is just that. An open-source project based in Japan, Shiira is still playing catch-up with Safari but has a very bright future ahead.
Here is the current feature list:

"*Tabbed windows
* Bookmark management
* Sharing bookmarks with Safari
* Side drawer showing bookmarks and history
* Bookmarks toolbar
* Search field with choice of search engine
* Customizing toolbar
* Cache control panel
* Window appearance switching (Aqua and Metal)
* Toolbar icons switching
* Removing Cookie and cache at the termination
* Displaying favicon list
* Enable/disable favicon with bookmark
* Help document (Japanese only)
* Multiple source windows per one browser window
* Displaying HTTP header in source window
* Wheel button operation (open in new tab, and tab switching)
* Auto-tab for bookmark folder
* Displaying back-forward list on toolbar buttons
* Search text field for bookmark and history"

Keep in mind that since it is based on Apple's WebKit it renders everything just as pretty and quickly as Safari does. The name is Japanese for Dolphin Fish (Mahi Mahi).
