    Sunrise 1.0 Released! Fast, Fast, Fast Browser
    Folks, wanted to let everyone know that Sunrise Browser 1.0.1 is now available for download. You may recall that Sunrise is a small, feature filled and FAST web browser. I am posting this message with it! See:

    http://sunrisebrowser.com/en/

    I am not affiliated with Sunrise in any way - I was just so impressed with the version 0.85 "beta" that I have been checking back at their web site from time to time to see if the 1.0 release was available yet. Today it was!

    Sunrise may be of interest because of its clean and uncluttered interface (of course some will complain that it is not "Mac like" enough I am sure) and its speed, both in loading and in executing. Sunrise also features a unique treatment of bookmarks.

    Download it and give it a whirl!

    I use it for web development, it's "640", "800", and "1024" resolution buttons are pretty nice.
    I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.

    I have been surfing this web site for the past ten minutes or so with Sunrise and I can't believe how zippy it is. It is noticably faster than Safari or even the G5 optimized version of Firefox (Bonecho). This is pretty neat stuff!

    Surfwax95, do you happen to know if Sunrise's rendering engine is based on anyone else's, or is it a completely fresh implementation? I am guessing "fresh", given its speed.

    EDIT: Whoops! This is answered right on the Sunrise front page - same engine as Safari.

    OK, not so terrific after all perhaps. The bookmarks functionality just doesn't seem to work. You can create a bookmark, but when I ask Sunrise to show me my bookmarks, it just goes off into la la land - CPU pegs up around 80% and nothing happens. I have to quit the application at that point. No bookmarks = unusable browser. Rather an obvious thing to get wrong... surprised it was released like this.

    Haha, got excited to early huh? :girl:

    Anyway, maybe it's just a bug. Wait for the next release or report it to the soft devs and they might put a fix to it.

    Yes, I will do just that. Sunrise looks SO promising - so fast, so neat. Always there is something wrong. In the early releases, bookmarks worked just fine, but it didn't have tabbed browsing. Now it has tabbed browsing, is still lightening fast, but bookmarks are broken. I will keep an eye on it and let you know when a fully operational version is available.

    It does look interesting, like a lean Safari with graphical bookmarks. I always get excited about new browsers and have been playing with Minefield recently, but I nearly always end up going back to a solid optimised Firefox, which I have been using in one form or another since about 2002.

    It uses the exact same version of Webkit that Safari does? That might not be a good thing... there's a reason I use the Webkit nightlies instead of release Safari after all.

    Tried it out and I will admit one thing, it is FAST.

    However, I just can't get over the fact that Safari based browsers don't have the same keyboard shortcuts that Firefox has. I know, I could learn the Safari shortcuts, but when I have to switch from Mac to PC on a regular basis, I would much rather prefer having one set of shortcuts transfer between platforms. It's bad enough that I have to remember to switch between Ctrl and Command

    Ugh, I think it does. I couldn't find anything on the site and there's nothing in the source code to indicate otherwise.
    Guess that would make Sunrise fast, customizable and just as bug-ladden as Safari.
    If the nightlies didn't break things like Saft, I'd be using them instead of Camino or Omniweb (which DOES use a webkit newer than the one Safari uses).
    If Shiira was updated more frequently, I'd give that a shot, too. Sadly, the beta has been at a standstill and most of the cool features aren't implemented or are broken.

    The bookmarks seem to work for me. What problems are you guys having with them?
