Nice to see a browser that still fits on a floppy. Compared with Safari (66MB unzipped) it's amazing it can do as much.

Gotta love Sunrise! However, I just noticed that it seems to be eating my bookmarks: letting me (think I'm) adding more, but then only displaying/being able to access ~18 of them! Since the homepage moved to code.google.com, I can find nowhere else to ask whether this is a bug or perhaps only a problem on my machine. Anyhow, Sunrise is still great ...

It's the SAFARI of the past for simplicity, and speed. Plus, the dev features can be useful for anybody, not just dev. When my 80 year old parents see something online they can snapshot. Great. Now you've made them more annoying because I get twice the email from them. But it's the good kind of annoying. Faster, cache control, not a memory hog... ...It's my new browser, and my parents like it too. Good work. It's highly functional, but beware, there are some sites that do not conform to even modern standards (which are usually wider than the old standards). If a site doesn't display well in this app, it'll be very slow in others, but viewable. This was meant to be simple, and for the most part, is extremely compatible. But all apps have limits, don't forget that. Programmers aren't GOD, they can't think of every possible thing all the time. As such, this one did a darn fine job of catching most of it. A decent app for those on the go.

Latest version doesn't support ppc anymore (though it's not stated neither on the dev's site). Until now, it was the fastest browser I've tried. Because I'm not a developper, and because it has nothing really high-level regarding bookmarks, I'm using it exclusively to view videos on specific sites that doesn't display too well on other browsers.

Same remark about 2.2.1: not PPC!

I have not been able to find the Auto-resizable window... Has it been removed from this version, I wonder?

You said you tried every combination, but here's a simple solution that works: just add a single period to the end of localhost, i.e "localhost.:9001".

This would be a good web devs browser if it used the latest webkit inspector. Saying this is great for web development without this is a bit overstated.

this app is great for webdev. it has a couple bugs, and is missing some features, but it not a memory hog like safari and firefox. bugs: * random constant dialog box popping up that says "the file could not be found", or something to that effect * occasional crashes * window resizing is slow; i suspect because of the transparency toggle. i can live with it * you have to press apple _shift_ + , to scale text larger * typing "localhost:3000" into the url field searches google for "localhost:3000"; i have to type 'http://' everytime i want to go to a site. that's dumb. provide a toggle or something! missing features: * middle button click to open a new tab doesn't work, but apple click does * tabs don't open in the background * shiira can read safari's bookmarks without importing them; it would be nice if sunrise did the same * right click on dock icon should include "new window" function * right click adblock, like firefox? * whitelist popup blocker (as in, allow localhost for webdev, and nobody else) good points: * small buttons and interface is awesome. keep with that! * clicktoflash seems to work with sunrise as well. cool! * fast! focuses on rendering html. i like it.

forgot one: as this app is for web developers, add an "inspect element" option!
