    So, anyone using it? Seems like an interesting concept, but I've not gotten the chance to install it yet. Feel free to post your opinions.

    Seems pretty decent - still in beta and has some bugs. Some potential for sure, but im not sure its doing anything new that opera or firefox (with tweaks) can do already.

    It's going to be tough to get me away from Opera, but I'll give this a try this week sometime. I like the minimalistic design however.

    Very nice and quick if I don't say so myself, but like Zardon said, it's doing nothing new so far, nice all the same. :)

    I love the individual process tabs... Such a simple and great idea (stolen from IE8? who cares? lol)

    But I didn't find it much faster than FF, and some important plugins didn't work unfortunately so back to FF. Still, a good first try!

    im all for IE7, but this thing blows IE7 out of the water after my first impression. I am stubborn in using programs that integrate well into the OS (normally like microsoft software) and thats why I stay away from Firefox. I don't care for it. loads HELL of a lot faster than IE7, a joke of a download and install it was so quick. in addition, the interface feels more integrated into Vista and modernized than IE7 itself. I've been using it for 1/2 hr going through a bunch of Flash sites and its no problem. But I'm sure secure login places may not recognize it. In addition, the popup blocker fully works. Some porn sites for me give me too many popups, this fully blocks it. I'm going to keep using it!

    very good beta 1, less problems than IE7 Beta 1!

    I've already tested with a vundu like infection and it's shockwave flash just kept going on the next page I navigated to after it had stopped on the one, it's a die hard little browser with lots of potential. Mighty morphin fast too.

    That is why I like it as well. Still would like to have bookmark section though.
