    Anyone using it?


    I've been using it for about a day or so and love it. Only takes on bug with BHW and I'll be supporting users, so I thought I should at least see what It's like. It's based on Chromium code and is being made by the ex-Opera CEO. it's only in the Technical Preview state, but seems stable from what I've seen. With Microsoft releasing their new Spartan browser, It's nice to see some new competition coming in to muscle in on the share.

    Here's an article with most of the info and here's the download if you're interested.

    Let me know what you think.

    I have using it for a day. It's fast but without common addons such as adblock, it's back to firefox for me.

    I can say one thing, its smooth and its fast, when compared to firefox.

    Just FYI. Since it's chrome based code, you should be able to install any chrome based addon, including adblock. I've just tried and it installs. It's obviously still a development in progress as it's missing a clear all recent history shortcut key.

    Is it 64 bit or 32 bit? They don't mention it on their website and none of the press releases or reviews mention it.

    Just tried it. I didn't like it.

    I can't disable the left panel completely.
    View-Source is too slow.
    The interface looks meh.
    It just doesn't feel right.

    The better question would be: why would I use it over Chrome, FF or IE? What does it have that those browsers don't?

    Its point is to become a power-user focused browser, like the original Opera was until version 12. Opera is now focused on the average Joe.

    Looks promising but I can't do without full functionality of RoboForm. So, I have to just stick with FF and IE. :(

    Click on the very left bottom "button" twice.

    Can't verify this one.
