AWESOME! I just saw this on Digg just a minute ago! Now it'll be a matter of time until someone finds a way to skin it, just like iTunes..

I just tried it out on my laptop (which sucks btw), and it's no good on this. I will try it on my desktop when I get home to see what it's like there.

I just tried, I like it although on some sites it's not as fast as Firefox but it is not a resource hog :).

NOT a resource hog? Well my PC desktop right now is consuming ..

*checks task manager*

.. 43 CPU and 103, 848 K in the memory usage coloumn, respectively. Although I love it, it's a hog on resources (sometimes), and depends on how many tabs I have opened (three, as of right now).

I see. I guess different computers have different outputs.


@beautiful.blood

It's design and interface, I suppose.

I like the GUI and the effects but I'm not impressed very much. It is slow sometimes and not very customizable. I'll wait for the final version.

How the heck do you remove that "Report Bug" button?

Meh. Apple fanboys, rejoice! Don't need to disguise FF with SaFire! I don't see any greater differences in security and features, but to please their fanboys-who-can't-afford-a-Mac demographic. And besides, Safari is closed-source (which should be 'case closed'...), and may just be a different browser under Windows, with the same sheepskin. Just like the Safari on the iPhone is just a branding. Remember when people hated WMP9 for Mac?
