It seems faster than M$ IE for Macintosh. It plays nice with most of the websites I visit.

What I did notice that the little JAVAscript buttons you see when you post to the that enable you to embed URL's and such are missing, but I must say I just checked M$ IE 5.2 for OS X and they don't show up there either. Those additional buttons show up in M$ Windows browsers.

I like the way it handles bookmarks. It has an iTunes feel for organizing and handling your bookmarks.

I also like browsing webpages in tabs much like the browser for M$ Windows

The only con that has come to my attention is that you can't seem to send a webpage link from the browser directly. You have to open your email client manually and copy/paste the URL in a new message.

It is only 7MB download I think and is well worth a try.


PS I am OS agnostic and have used everything from DOS, Windows 3.11, SGI IRIX 4.0.5f, 5.3, 6.2, Windows 9x, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Linux and am absolutely in awe of Apple OS X 10.2.6 and all of its pieces and parts. I just setup up a NFS share on an old SGI O2 that has Liberty Paint on it. I did a Cmd+K to attached to it from my new OS X machine. I then typed nfs:// and boom I was attached. I then did a Cmd+T from the new window of the attached share to place it in my Favorites and now that share is always available by double clicking the favorite icon for that share.
