Jazzyguy, I have to disagree with you. Read the following post on Robin's Facebook page. Developer has stopped working on it due to lack of time. -->http://www.facebook.com/RobinBrowser/posts/337236326375307

You are correct! I am standing in the corner for incorrect answers. Oh well! I'm sorry to see this browser go as it was a nice idea. I liked it a lot better than Google's Chrome.

I like the interface,the speed and the applications.I played with it a while and it really runs great. The GUI is really nice. I find it a fun browser to use.

Ok is the name Raven or Robin??? The page says Raven, my old version is Raven (but I have been having trouble updating) but the download is Robin. When you go to the developers site the name has changed to Robin??? Should't a change of name be something users would be notified about?

Developer what's going on??

This would be a 4 or 5 rating if more of the features / options worked and the user did not have to figure out the name change to update.

It's snappy! I like the UI, but I don't see the real benefit of the apps. All they are are bookmarks, essentially. You can accomplish the same thing by putting bookmarks in Safari's menu bar then using CMD+ to switch to each. I suppose the benefit is that you can jump to each without creating a new tab or opening a new page, but eh.

Only some bookmarks were imported from Safari. There doesn't seem to be an import option anywhere to import bookmarks from other browsers.

There is no way to add a custom style sheet or ad-block. And as stated before, several of the preferences aren't yet there, but I assume they will be soon.

So far it is stable for me and I like it, but I just don't know what real benefit there is to creating web apps as your selling feature. I expected them to behave more like mobile device apps and not just bookmarks.

Overall I think there is potential. I love the speed and the UI is nice. Hopefully the browser continues to improve.

Maybe this browser could be something big one day but major annoyances remain:

• Almost half of the preferences are unavailable

• Adblock is an utter joke, but Adblock is not app and it's all about app-app-apps!

• Want to search with secure google? Y'know "https://google.com", this browser will not allow you at present. But who cares right, because its not an app-app-app-app-app!

Flat out security risk and unstable for any serious use. Limited features, and as far as apps, wouldn't use them while the first two issues remain. This thing leaves you wide open to anything while browsing.
