    Hi
    Was reading in the Herald today about the release of this as a new browser. Just wondering if anyone had tried it.

    Yes I have downloaded it and installed. Seems to run well and fast. A few differences to get used to.

    Downloaded it, Fast indeed, played with it, got bored with it and uninstalled it.
    When people can add extensions like FF it should be great.
    But FF is working on a faster Java engine than Cromes V8.

    Some sites say its got what Safari had (that carpet bomb vulnerability), whatever it was.

    So, install and use at your own risk

    I installed it to see if it was any better, but find its not what it is supposed to be, no surprises there.
    Yet more software marketing that does not equal the actual product.
    Its Software Sales 101, sell the features not the reality.
    Some people are alive simply because it is illegal to shoot them, most of them are in parliament.
