Nobody outside Apple knows exactly. It DID, however, just go to Golden Master a few hours ago:

Update: OS X Mavericks 'Golden Master' released to developers | MacNN

Which almost certainly means it will be released later this month.

As for what it will cost, my GUESS would be $20. Mountain Lion and Lion both cost $20, so there is precedent for this.

My personal guess would be in about two weeks time. But that's just speculation.

I read that Safari will have tabs, will that be like FireFox Tabs, with the tabs up on top instead of like safari now is? If not I will still not use Safari. I like the way FireFox has the tabs.

What I dont like about Safari is how it opens a new window instead of a simple tab.

Then you should try changing your Safari Preferences so that it opens tabs instead of a new window.

Safari - Preferences - Tabs - Open pages in tabs instead of windows - Always


Also, try installing Glims for even more control of how Safari acts and looks.
But, even installing that won't help if you don't ever go into the preferences to see what's there and how you can make Safari behave the way you want.

If you're content with the default settings of every app you have and don't want to know about all the options the developers have provided in the app so that you can set them up to your own likes, not much else I have to say.

Only pointing out that Safari already has tabs and will already do what it is you're asking for.
Don't want to change it to the way you want it... that's ok too.

My wife does that. She just mentioned something to me 2 days ago that she didn't like on her Mac - she'd just been quietly frustrated for 6+ years.
Took me 10 seconds to make a change that she could have made 6 years ago if she had only asked about it.
Or if she had ever opened the preferences for that app to see what choices the developer had provided the user.

I'm still learning Mountain Lion. Don't think I'll change quickly.

I had some problems with Safari and started using Firefox 2 or 3 months ago. Must say I like Firefox much better. Would be hard for me to change back at this point.
