    Very interesting. Read the comic for some interesting technical info on their development process and ideology.

    It looks really interesting. It also appears to be released today. And there I was thinking today would be a boring day

    Interesting... been looking over it this morning. May download it later this week and see if it lives up to the hype.

    Based upon the tech info in that comic, they've got some solid ideas.

    Its alright and somewhat quicker than Firefox.

    However, there are no plugins and for all 30 pages of the comic I don't think it can or will replace firefox.

    I like the search function though. I guess for casual browsing its not bad. For development... there are better alternatives.

    Well, it IS a beta, so there's no surprise that there's no plugins yet.

    Yeah but after flicking through the various settings and options the browser doesn't appear to have any ability to accept plugins. Whether this comes in at a later date or not I don't know.

    I just find it a little odd considering Firefox/Operas support of such things.

    It's definitely going to have plugins (read the comic for more info on implementation).

    Watched a bit of the press conference earlier, some interesting stuff.

    I'll stick with my Opera for now, thanks. The last thing the world needs right now is yet another browser.
