Apple is expected to release its new Safari 5 browser at the company's annual World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC), which starts today in San Francisco.
News of the browser's launch started to do the rounds soon after internal documents and images of Safari 5 were leaked.
Over the last few years, WWDC has become a platform for Apple to announce the launch of major products and updates. WWDC 2008 and 2009 witnessed launches of iPhone versions 3G and 3GS, respectively.
Last year, Apple announced a 15" Macbook Pro, Snow Leopard, the new operating system and the iPhone 3GS at the WWDC.
