Roccat Browser is an amazing browser from the fludium family. It is an amazingly fast Web browser, which has some great features such as:
  • VisiTabs which gives a preview of the Web site in the tab.
  • Navigate Launchers- assign letters or words to navigate to Web pages, there are already many preloaded ones
  • Ad-Remover built within the engine
  • Great internal engine effects, purple glows on inputs, hold down on text field for 5 seconds for them to enlarge.
  • Email-Previewer; tells you when a link is an email link and tells you the link
  • Change User Agents- View sites which need more...

R seems blazing fast and stable. User interface is kind of spartan and old-looking if you like that. Bookmark import does not seem to sort, just makes a subfolder. There seems to be no bookmark bar for quickest access to favorites.

Must reneg. Roccat keeps quitting on me. I think it is the nfl “game cast” refreshes that are giving it trouble.

Hello - the bookmark functionality is being worked on please bear with us, there is a bookmarks bar (View > Show Bookmark Bar) or press Shift Command B.

What system are you using to help us diagnose your issue - and what is the direct URL for the NFL game cast?

Runecats, thanks for reading and replying. I use Roccat 3.9 on Mavericks/MacBook Air. Roccat BookmarksBar has such little spaces for each bookmark and lacks separators so that it is pretty unreadable. For sports sites with their updating game-tracking, you have to go to each site (nfl.com, nba.com, nhl.com) and click on any game. There’s no one main address. While we are at it, the tabs bar for open webpages could use better signaling as to which tab is being viewed. The little blue line is not really eye-catching.

Thanks for your reply, we will get our dev and testing teams to look into the issues - we’ll also get our UI teams involved with the UI issues you are suffering from.

The selected tab is lighter as well as having a blue line - however most users don’t use the Tabs Bar, they tend to use VisiTabs instead.

Was having some issues with 3.8 on Mavericks, was about to post on Macupdate then 3.9 came out - so decided to use it for a couple of weeks before writing a review.

I must say it's fixed all my issues Hooray! And it seems much faster and rock solid, new privacy settings are also much welcomed.

Thanks guys - great that I can still use on PPC and Intel too :D As I have my new Mac with Mavericks, and a G4 for running some PPC software which doesn't work on Intel - so great that I can have a great browser on both, I hope support for both systems continues

Bring on Roccat 4!

Upon launch, Little Snitch catches it trying to sneakily connect to facebook.com ! Are you freaking kidding me?!? I found nothing in the preferences to turn it off or indicate that that you are supposed to know about it. I hate facebook and want nothing to do with it and this browser is trying to secretly contact it! I don't care for what reason, I didn't authorize it or ask for it and if it does that what else will it try to do? NO THANKS!! Avoid any POS software that tries this underhanded sneaky crap.
Deleting and will warn anyone else about this nonsense!
I would give it negative stars for this if possible!

Roccat does not connect to Facebook without your permission, what you probably did it activate the Facebook Status Update panel (This is activated from a three finger swipe down from the address bar, or by pressing ctrl shift F, or by going Social > Facebook Status… or by going to the connect menu and choosing Facebook Status)

Unless activated Roccat doesn’t load Facebook in anyway - and launching that panel only loads a Facebook page - it doesn’t connect with Facebook until you type your message and press share.

I hope this helps.

Kind Regards,

I had the same results and share your feelings, but decided to still give it a try. I couldn't even get a blank page! Command-N doesn't work. File -> New Window doesn't work.

So, in addition to starting off on the wrong foot with the Facebook thing, it is amazingly USELESS.

A total waste of time.

Definitely the best non-Apple browser, in competition with iCab.

An outstanding Browser.A great number of features in fact too many to list.Now with the Safari and Chrome and Firefox Bookmarks that other Browsers don't have. 5 stars and if I could give more I would!

Decent browser. Good potential. Would be better for me if it didn't freeze and generate a spinning beachball whenever I try to import bookmarks from Firefox. I have never succesfully done this.

Why can't Roccat import from a file, like Firefox, Safari and Chrome?

I hope there's eventual support for extensions (LastPass, 1Password, etc.)

Three stars for trying, but when I import bookmarks it retrieves them but doesn’t distribute them, so they are not in the manager and the bookmarks bar remains unpopulated. Essentially, I’d have to go to every site I bookmarked in chrome or safari and then re-assign it in Roccat.

After working with me for a week Tom and his staff fixed the SafariBookmarks problem and it works. I tried the Beta version that was presented to me via eMail and it works. I am very happy about that and must congratulate Tom and his Staff for a great version. Needless to say this browser is deserving of 5 stars.

Here is my honest review of this browser.In deference to Sarah Lee who is on the developer's staff and is very helpful and cooperative,I have to say this browser is far from being an improvement over past versions. Roccat has imported my subscriptions from Safari and it was done successfully.When I click on one of the bookmarks it fails to load the bookmark.This lack of feature has plagued Roccat since its very beginning.In addition I belong to an Analogue group of Audio called Tapeheads.net.Not only does it fail to render the web page correctly,missing various salient parts of the web page,when I insert my user name and password although it accepts it,it looks like it didn't. The web page itself accepts the user name and password but the log in remains blank and my avatar does not appear. This version is poor and for that reason,in deference to Sarah Lee and the staff of Roccat I have to give it one star.

Hello Jazzyguy,

Can you try something for me go to Roccat > Preferences then go to On Exit and change the AdRemover setting to OFF and then relaunch Roccat. Then try the Tapeheads.net website.

Also can you confirm it was working in previous versions?

The bookmark issue certainly isn't a wide spread issue and I haven't yet heard of such as issue - could you contact us at contact[at]runecats.com and I will pick up the email of the other side to prevent lots of messages here.

Unfortunately Sarah Lee isn't working today so I will try my best to match her!

Hi Tom,I took your advice and unfortunately it did not help at all. I removed the preference to (on exit) remove Ad Remover but it did not help. My avatar does not show and although the site itself accepts my user name and password the login is blank and it looks like I have to put in my password again.

I don't know if you are getting my eMail Tom.But my Firefox Bookmarks are fine and when I launch Tapeheads.net from my Firefox saved Bookmarks I get my login as well as my Avatar. This is indeed strange as when I just launch the web page I don't have the log in or avatar.

Hey Jazzyguy,

I have got your email, and I have sent a response. We hope to get the problem sorted ASAP.
