Lightning Web Browser is a minimalist Web browser designed with one thing in mind - speed!

Based on Webkit (the core of the Safari Chrome browsers), instead of unloading browsed pages as you navigate, Lightning Web Browser stores a buffer of many WebBrowser objects in memory. This allows you to return to a previously viewed page instantaneously without having to wait for it to reload. This simple optimisation makes a huge difference to your browsing experience.

URL's (starting with http://) or search items can be entered into the search field. For search terms, select the stite you wish to search on the popup more...

What's New

Version 3.1:


  • Recent history is now fully searchable from the address bar.
  • A high visibility reader forming a highspeed alternative to all that site "chrome".
  • A site analyser showing all web traffic which can be used to block tracking sites.
  • A site watcher notifying you when any web site/blog you select has changed.
  • An automatic, realtime RSS more...


OS X 10.6 or later

So, I've been hunting for a download link for the last 20 minutes and can't, for the life of me, find one. Where do I download this? Went to the App Store, but I'm just travelling around in a loop, returning to the same page of adverts again and again .., and again ...

I clicked on the Download Now button above and it launched the App Store app and downloaded, so not sure why you are unable to get it...maybe you have by now?
