I've been giving it a whirl. It certainly puts less of a resource strain on the system than Firefox.
It has some neat features right out of the box, best of which is it imported all my Firefox bookmarks right off with no troubles. I've seen (not experienced though) that if you're browsing with multiple tabs and one of them hangs, it doesn't necessarily cause a fault with the others, and you should be able to close the offending tab without affecting the others.
Some pages do seem to load quicker, but I wonder if that's more to do with it's smaller resource footprint. I looking forward to seeing what they do with it.
Hi Tom, well I have put new bookmarks on sites and it didn't seem to have any problem. Also all I had to do was hit one button, when automatically it asked me if I would like my bookmarks copied from Firefox when it was setting itself up and it appears to have copied them fine, though you have to close Firefox to allow it to copy the bookmarks. As for the speed issue, personally I could not say as I am on HSDPA wireless 3.6 Mbps and the service provider will be doing a major upgrade ( one hopes! ), lots of people have said it is fast though and nobody has contradicted them.
Thanx Tom, this is the first time I have heard of it, guess the malware crims must be drooling at the mouth at the thought of the introduction of such technology, though could be very useful at the same time.
What I like about it (without going under the hood): the history page, and the possibility to do a search on it it's fast and light crashing one tab doesn't crash the whole browser the way pop-ups are managed
What I don't like about it: no adblock (yet) no IETab (yet) a general lack of plugins (so far)
