I am running OS X 10.6.3 on a MacBookPro with an Intel Core i5, 2.4 GHz, on a fresh install of 10.6.3. Roccat 8.5 does not work. There is no window showing, user agent dows not work, main browsing does not work. Roccat does not connect to the internet. Some drop down menus drop down, but that is all they do. This software does not work on my laptop. As of this date, Roccat 8.5 is a waste of time. Do not download this software, and basically, don't waste your time with this. If you do, you'll regret it.

The MacUpdate download link incorrectly gives version 8.1 (not 8.2). Upon opening, Roccat v8.1 can proceed to updating itself.

Roccat does exactly what I expected. It works in old OS versions so that you know longer see that YOU ARE NOT WORTHY to use our website crap. I run it on Leopard on an old PPC G5 and I also use it on my Mac Mini running Mavericks. It does great on YouTube playback. What is really amazing to me though is the speed. I have had no issues with it and have it installed it on dozens of systems. I recommend it highly, especially for older systems.

Still my fave browser, Roccat 8 brings nothing new to Roccat, but considering how much awesome Roccat 7 brought that really doesn't matter. Roccat 8 focuses on performance and improvements to existing functionality. While I never noticed performance being an issue in 7 I appreciate the efforts and can definitely notice the difference. I just hope Apple can do an equally good job with their promised performance improvements in iOS12!

Roccat has great promise, but I'm not able to import Firefox bookmarks.
Tried twice and got an ever spinning beach and had to force quit.
I’m on OSX 10.9.5 Mavericks.

Can anyone help?

What I find outstanding, and worthy of notice, is that this developer is able to continue to support 10.5 Leopard on both PowerPC and Intel, as well as run on the later OSes. This feat must be a tribute to their unusual skill level.

I'm been using Roccat for many years, each version gets better. Roccat 6 seemed to slow down in terms of innovation, but Roccat 7 really has the wow factor for me! The 'fused bar aware' feature is super cool and seems to work really well from what i've seen so far. All I can say is, i'm impressed! Keep up the good work and thanks for supporting the mac community.

Firefox no longer provides updates for Snow Leopard, so was looking for a supported browser for this platform. Roccat launches and seems to indicate support, but some web pages will not load. Google.com being the most important. But most sites just seem to time out. Seems like mostly https sites suffering but not sure. Back to a slightly outdated Firefox.

Nod bad. Another useful third party browser. Good alternative to Safari. Try it and you'll be surprised.

A friend of mine recommended Roccat to me, I started with Roccat 5 which was great, but Roccat 6 really feels much more refined (so far)

I've been on Roccat 3.9 for a long time, and it was great. Version 6 has bugs, and blue flashes when scrolling on OSX 10.11.6 Maybe I should revert & wait for another update.

This web browser is so fast on my PowerBook G4, it crashes. It's faster than TenFourFox, but the occasional crashing gets really annoying. The social media integration is cool, but I rarely find myself using them. Speaking of social media, it fails to render facebook properly, so I end up going back to TenFourFox. Aside from the occasional crashes, I'd love it if the developer figures out a way to integrate plugins like in safari or maybe have them built into the web browser somehow. For now, I'm going back to TenFourFox and wait until Roccat gets better.

With the performance problems we've been having with Safari on 10.11.1 and .2, I have been considering moving away again. I really would be interested in Roccat if it had a few of these items: • a way to change from visual tabs to standard tabs quickly • a darker theme for the browser chrome and a default black / dark blank page when opening a tab. • adblock / adblock plus / disconnect.me/disconnect • perhaps just generally able to use Safari extensions would be better • High performance on massive tab quantities • Sessions for Safari functionality integrated for saving browsing history (since it is going away soon) • Safari Stand functionality that helps organize downloads better for filtering and sorting downloads • auto importation and updating of other browser bookmarks so that we can access all browser bookmarks at any given time. • a robust history management interface that is similar to Safari, but more performant and built around search (some of us like to keep multi-year histories for research purposes) • a Chrome like status bar

I wanted to like this. I'm leaving three stars because it has potential. I have Safari, Chrome, Firefox, and Opera installed on my Mac Pro running Yosemite 10.5.5. All the browsers are the latest versions. All work reasonably well. I tried this browser and it crashed right off the bat. After two more tries it came up, so then I tried to download the user manual. Big mistake. Crashed again. I copied the PDF's URL into Safari and Firefox. Safari stopped downloading halfway and froze. On Firefox I got a message above my bookmarks bar saying that there was a problem with the PDF. I quit and tried again and after a long time it finally downloaded. I view and download PDFs in both those browsers on a daily basis (my online store creates PDF invoices for every sale.) I then reopened Roccat but it wanted to download the manual again. There was no way to quit and the force quit dialog showed it as a red app, not responding. At first I couldn't find the location of the preference file so I threw away the Roccat folder in Application Support, quit out of everything and tried twice more with the same result: deep freeze. I went back to preferences and tried viewing by date and found it! It's under ORG.Runecats, not com. Deleting that got me back to square one. The default for saving the Fusedbar URLs should be NO. That would have probably prevented the browser from trying to repeatedly download the Roccat manual it was choking on. Next I tried to import my Firefox bookmarks. It's a breeze importing Safari and Chrome into Firefox or the other way around. Roccat, not so much. I chose import in the menu, selected Firefox and there was no feedback (other than to ask me to close Firefox, which I promptly did). Is it working or not? I have no way of knowing. I tried Safari too with the same result. But after I quit and relaunched I did get a menu item with a folder containing a hierarchial listing of bookmarks and bookmark folders from Safari. Not too convenient. Computers and software are supposed to do the drudge work. Decades later and some programmers are still clueless. When I actually visited a site the browser works fine and I like the little previews in the top bar but when I tried to bookmark a site the add bookmark selection in the bookmarks menu was grayed out. I was able to get the add bookmark in the pop up menu on the right side to work and it asked for a name for the bookmark but there wasn't any obvious way to cancel out if I changed my mind. Hitting the escape key actually typed an exclamation mark in the dialog box. Entering a blank into the window and hitting return made the friggin' dialog go away. If this is version 5.1, I shudder to think what earlier versions may have been like. Sorry, I gave up. If you ever get this to work correctly, I would suggest calling the browser runecat instead of roccat (if you can) because Googling roccat brings up some German tech company first and runecat is just as good a name as roccat.
