Dead Link - and the developers site is no longer up on the web.

Please get rid of this. It is an eyesore, it's not fast, it's large in megabytes, the list goes on.

If you want to even compete in the "small-browser world", you need more than this. Regular "basic-as-sample code" Cocoa web browsers do more than this and are much less in size. This is 10.6 MB, while most others (that do similar or more) are running around 1 MB to 3 MBs.

Also, it takes 5 seconds to load on my computer. That is very comparable on launch time to OmniWeb, and everybody knows OmniWeb does 50x what this program does.

Another thing, the toolbar icons are poor quality, and the interface needs to look like it didn't get pasted from Microsoft Word 2004's Autoshapes.

The history needs to show up in the menu bar and be clickable and clearable. The option to not record the history should be called "Private Browsing" and should be in the menu bar, as should be the options to block pop-ups. Also, the page title should be in the page title area.

It is best to make your application mirror other apps, so if you learn one, you've learned all. In other words, try to configure your interface and menus like Safari.

This should be version 0.1 alpha release.
