Wow! This is fast and has features.
Does it really protect? I'm not so sophisticated to know, but have used so many Mac browsers in the past 20 years or so and so far, like this one.... a lot.

I really like it.
It works fine on my iMac 10.8.4 and am liking the hang motion mouse/trackpad (I use both) gestures.
Sure I will still use Aurora the gecko engine (long time Camino user) for folders with many bookmarks and such, but I am getting used to the "speed dial" which does pretty much the same thing, but better.
Stash opens my home page and from there the webkit browsing is as fast and stable as any other I've tried.

This "beta" is surely a surprise. I'm sorry I down loaded it. The app has lost most of it's features including changing the order of the feed. Why?
Well, it's been almost 120 years of good service, handling a great many feeds without hanging up, unlike all the competitors I've tried, so i'll stick with it for a while, hoping this stripped down version is stage one towards a post Google renaissance.

Yes... this is it.
The improvements to viewing, searching and the mini player have pretty much completed the development as far as I'm concerned.
The perfect app........ no more need for those add ons I've been carrying for years.

Crash, crash...trash!

Like it, a lot.
Will be waiting for the feature to select individual songs from an album and also an ability to switch back to "shuffle" without having to go back to iTunes.

Works for me. There are features that no other browser has and it's quick and outscores Safari 393 to 378 on the html5 test and scores a perfect 100 on the acid3 test.
My one disappointment is that when I send link and copy of a web page, it still does not render a photo embedded in the page.

There are some things to like:I love the motion to switch between tabs and it loads the page and the app from the dock quickly, but the adblock is terrible. It seems like for every web page it opens it opens two ads and two pages that i didn't want.Until that is fixed, it is unusable

I've always liked this browser.... have used it for many years, but since about 6 months it won't keep me logged in on my Yahoo home page, when I restart the browser, even when I check the box to do so.
This is a minor inconvenience, but I have rarely used it since this unfortunate bug.

I'm starting to really like Chromium and this little add-on makes it almost as much fun as my #1 browser Camino, which may be phased out in the not too distant future.. so, I'm really glad to have found something which could replace it.

Error 52?
I've been using ClamXav for quite a while now, without difficulty. I am running OS 10.5.8. on an intel core duo iMac.
After upgrading to 2.0.5 I am unable to "update virus definitions."
I get this:

I've tried uninstalling and going back to the older version.... no change....anyone help?
I also went to the clamX site, but didn't get any ideas from there.

OK, all's well.
I did the uninstall that comes with the package and that uninstalled the engine. After a re-install (with a new engine) all works as it should.

I do have to say that I love this app and kudos to the developer.

I have a PC for work and the virus detection on that one is just so boring.

Clam stuff like this is just such a hoot.... "I will quarantine infected files
..." Shades of "Hal." LOL!

Not withstanding the information on this page, this version of NNW needs Mac OSX 10.4 and higher.

I tried to load it on my lap top running 10.3.9, which failed and it was confirmed by the developer.
