Browser for Mac1.3

23 April 2013

WebKit-based browser.

What is Browser for Mac

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 websites, content, bookmarks and pages stored for reading later.

Tag it, baby! Tired of searching for bookmarks? Need your brain for more important tasks than remembering URLs? That's why Browser allows to tag bookmarks and directly open them by simply searching for such a tag. And because sometimes a tag isn't enough - Browser also allows to make use of comments.

Drobox. Enabled All bookmarks, all pages stored for later reading are automatically available on all your Macs. Incl. all your tags and comments.

History. Repeating. But wouldn't it be great to actually have the complete history on all Macs available as well? Guess what.

12345. Fail. And because we all use such risky passwords, Browser will store secure ones for you. And you only have to remember a single one.

Lots more.

  • Tabs
  • Google Suggestions
  • Auto-complete
  • Queued Downloads
  • Porn Private Mode
  • Gestures
  • Keyboard Navigation
  • OS X 10.7 Lion Fullscreen, actually usable

Still searching?

What's new in Browser

Version 1.3:
  • added support for OS X 10.8.4
  • improved fraud and malware protection
  • removed Google Reader support
  • improved performance and stability
  • fixed some bugs and glitches

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: http://createlivelove.com/143/

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.

I installed v1.1.3 of Browser today and can't tell you how bad a change this is from v1.1.2; I can't even launch it; the Dock icon just keeps pulsing; but window comes up; all I get it the pulsing Dock icon. I have removed it (moved to Trash, as well as all related files to Browser) and even rebooted and unzipped the archive file again and installed it again in my root Applications folder. Still no joy. Going to Activity Monitor doesn't help either as Browser isn't coming up as a process running. So into the trash this version goes.

Well, I tried this momentarily and was not overly impressed unfortunately. :\ To be honest, it needs stronger developmental aspects. The developer should take some cues from Sunrise. I really appreciate, for example, how Sunrise displays the page source in that you can display it in a pane under the html rendering and then when you refresh, the html source also refreshes and remains at the same position. In all, there is some potential here if the dev can implement some more compelling aspects, particularly for developers.

Regarding the problems with YouTube. As far as I can see it they only happens when in Flash mode. H.264 is working fine. Or has someone problems in HTML5 mode as well?

Looked so promising and defiantly unique but although there are some nice features I can't help but point out that it has serious headaches when it comes to various sites I have tried to access one being youtube. At the moment it is unusable for me, keep up the work and fix these issues and you'll gain the extra 2 stars!

@ Theothertim: The browser is one of the most important Apps we use - or even the most important one. So it is good to have alternatives. This also means that we are especially picky when it comes to browsers. That's why I started writing it in the first place. Good Apps have nothing to do with the count of people involved in writing it. The iOS version of Safari is not at all written by a big team as well (for example). Often the opposite is try. Have a look at Adobe :-)) And like Safari - Browser uses WebKit and all the other OS X stuff - so it gets the same fixes provided by Apple at the same time. But as awlays - isn't it good to have the choose? The coise to use it. Or to don't use it :-)

I don't get it really, it is yet just another browser. Something between Safari and Chrome - like if they had a baby together... I don't find the "sales pitch" interesting either "browsing is about finding not search", thats just the same thing but said in a confusing way. Browsing is about experiencing content. I could not mind getting irriteted by all the flickering that occured in the window. I find the idea about saving my history to dropbox very unsecure...

combine the best things of safari and chrome and you'll be onto a winner here. some multi touch would be nice, hopefully configurable as other web browsers don't seem to give us the choice

I'd be willing to check this out….my interest is piqued, but a browser for OS 7 ONLY? What, a browser exclusively for "schwantzes"? I'd bet $100 that there are more Snow Leopard users around then there are Lion ones and will continue to be for quite a while, at least until Lion is smooth going for most users (it ain't there yet). I'm in OS 10.6.8…it's really good, and have nary a complaint with it, and have NO intention of going to Lion anytime soon. I know of a goodly number of other Mac users with the same mind set, too. OK, developer, what's your rationale for making Browser schwantz-only? Hmmm? And, oh yeah, "Browser" IS rather an inelegant name. Be creative and come up with something engaging.

It's a good start! My only advice, or question, would be: Is that the way fullscreen mode is going to continue to work? I don't know if it's by design, or just hasn't been properly implemented yet. Usually fullscreen would be, well, fullscreen - no matter the size you have the app in windowed mode. :)

"Browser" doesn't look very appealing, enough so that I don't feel like downloading and running it. (The name, to start with. And the overall look/feel of the description give me serious privacy concerns.) But what caught my eye was "Porn Private Mode." Seriously? PORN Private Mode? There are many uses for private mode other than looking at porn. (Not that there's anything wrong with using private mode for that either, but still...)
