    i went to this site, http://webkit.opendarwin.org/ and downloaded the latest build. now, WHAT is it? i know it's some web kit package, but i'm not really sure what to do with it.

    Why did you download it? Do you want to see what the rendering will look like in the next version of Safari? If you you would be better off with a nightly build.

    Once you have that just use it like Safari. It might be faster. It might render pages better. It should render SVG. It could crash. A lot.

    Ok, well from what I read its just a nightly build of Safari, so basically when you run Webkit (it should look like the safari icon, but with gold trim) it still runs Safari, but with different inner workings. There are some differences which can be found here here.
