Editor's Note: As some of our users have pointed out, Browser features adult-oriented icons and search modes that parents and guardians may not find appropriate for younger users. The developer has accordingly added the option of a Parental Control mode, which can be chosen on first running this application.

Browser is a Browser. A browser with WebKit inside - thus there is no need to tell you about the browsing experience. There's simply is no better way to surf the web.

So - why another one? Because browsing should be about finding - not searching. Finding more...

Tried this browser out and was pleasantly surprised. The GUI is really nice, it's slick and it works well in 10.8.2. I like the idea of tags and will stay with it and see how it progresses.

If you want (and are like me, avoiding Google wherever and whenever possible) you can download Browser with built-in support for DuckDuckGo instead of Google here:

I tried DuckDuckGo for a few test searches, and I found the results to be far different than Google's, and having almost no relevance to what I was searching for.
I QUICKLY went back to Google - I'll give up some privacy in order to find what I'm looking for.

Besides, with all the privacy extensions available (Firefox), I don't worry about it much because most of Google's junk is blocked.

I wouldn't recommend DuckDuckGo because as BigJohnson says it doesn't give great search results and is quite poor if you are used to Google......I would recommend using Startpage instead which offers you all the privacy benefits of DuckDuckGo but it's powered by Google search so you get exactly the same results as if you did a Google search. Startpage also gives you the option of viewing pages via their proxy service for even better anonymity. The only problem with Startpage is that it misses some Google features such as Maps but I find that it is generally good for 95% of searches.

This version works under Mountain Lion. I'd give it a review but I currently busy watching the movie "Inception". ;-)

This is getting worse and buggier each version, I guess that's what happens with a single hobbyist developer.

This program now crashes everytime I try and launch it (Using Mountain Lion).

I use a lot of browsers and sometimes I want to try something new. Browser looked very promising and after trying it for a few months/versions, I think I've had enough. Launching takes forever and no matter what I try to do to make it open up to a blank window, it always tries to load the developer's homepage. Closing tabs and other common operations is extremely buggy at times. It claims to be able to run plugins but there is no support whatsoever. On the surface it looks like an alternative to Chrome but between Chrome, Chromium, Firefox and Safari, I have all the alternatives I need.

Some initial thoughts:

+ Doesn't bog down like Safari when viewing heavy pages (like a Tumblr archive page).
+ Slick appearance with some nice animations

- Middle click doesn't open links in new tab (ideally in background)
- Non-standard toolbar that does not allow customization of any sort.
- Download window takes focus despite not ticking box to allow it.
- I would much prefer the DL window nixed in favor of the way Safari handles downloads.
- "Adult" icon feels silly. I'm not offended but it seems something more tasteful could be conjured up.

Overall, it feels lean and efficient and I look forward to it's future.

This browser has progressed and I'm enjoying using it. One minor point directed at the developer … Why doesn't Google's new background images work on their igoogle page? Also the full screen page doesn't work like it does with many other apps optimized for OS Lion.

Please eneable the 'Compatibility Mode' in the Preferences…

And yes, Browser's fullscreen is actually usable on screens bigger than 11 inch :-)

I'm also finding Browser's Full Screen mode a little perplexing. While the app does fill the screen, the actual browser remains unexpectedly reduced in size, unlike Safari, Chrome, or Firefox. It defeats the whole appeal of full screen mode.
