Ok I am a new mac user but i am bery familiar with Firefox which i use all the time. my complaints of firefox have been that web videos are always choppy, load up time for browser is slow and page load times are slow imho. I just stmbled onto this new browser and you need to really try it. load time is very fast, web videos on cnn.com etc all play fluid and fast, page load times are insanely fast compared to others ive tried and the thing is like 2 megs in size. Let me know what you guys think

Interesting.

But, no tabs? No toolbar? Am I missing something?

Seems to work pretty well otherwise. Seems really fast too!

Well yeah...I guess there isn't much of a point here, huh?

Still, always looking for a better mouse trap!

Thanks - I pretty much stick with Safari (using Opera at sites that Safari has problems with), but it doesn't hurt to check out something new.

Wow - nice browser! It automatically imported my Safari bookmarks and cookies over. It is very fast. Will try this out for the next few days. Thanks for the heads-up.

Wow. This browser is pretty quick, but unfortunately isn't tabbed. I do like the simplicity of it, though, and that it is only taking 55MB of RAM instead of 70+ that Safari takes, or the 90+ that FireFox uses.


Don't forget to use the reputation system!

It's slick, and fast and has some interesting approaches.... it needs to be more developed though, right now it feels like I'm using some cheap linux app...

Looks awesome, but when I was on windows I customized firefox so much that I could not leave it behind when I switched, and so I still use firefox now

To whomever who thinks I'm a linux hater: I'm not :-) Actually I like it. What I say is that as Mac users we are sing the prime Unix system, and Linux might be great but Mac is premium :-D . I'm just referring to the state that a large part of linux apps are in 0.xx development stages but still widely used. Nothing against the system. Just the feel. I like it a little luxurious, a bit exclusive. so i bought a mac.

As an ex-Linux user I agree completely and know what you mean, therefore no offense taken. I am going to watch this closely and see how it develops.
