Haven't had any problems. Haven't imported bookmarks as Annie tried to. Obviously has a lot of moon themes and so forth. If you setup different browsers for different functions then add it to your list. I like to separate functions so a banking browser isn't used with a click on random stuff browser etc.

I downloaded, tried it. Still trying. Looks good so far. Fast. Pleasing soft colors. In about 5 minutes I really enjoyed using it.

Wow. Crashes on launch - on three different 10.6.8 Macs. How can the developer possibly release such a complete piece of junk? DON'T YOU HAVE A TEST BED FOR YOUR SOFTWARE?!!??

Been using it on Mac Mini 2012, 10.13.6 High Sierra and it's been a daily driver. No problems so far and kicked Firefox to the curb due to it phoning home as much as Windows phones M$.

Can't rate it because not able to keep it from crashing when attempting to important HTML Bookmark file from (Chrome). Long time Mac user/tech. Performed all the checks I know, (believe me), no luck. Will keep at it when I have more time to waste.
