It's usable, but not impressive one bit. Everything seemed to be excessively slow. I was viewing the same site on 3 different browsers and K-Meleon was the slowest. Probably downloads chrome or firefox really well.

I found K-Meleon to be rather confusing and scattered. There seemed, to me, to be a lack of cohesiveness. I was unable to transfer any of my bookmarks from Firefox. It was far easier to use when it first came out years ago. Anyway, I'm not impressed and it surely doesn't warrant a five star rating. I haven't the time for a new learning curve.

I use to use this as my favorite browser for websites that it worked with - 15 years ago, I'm completely psyched that it's still around and updated. Time to install and see if it's as great as it use to be !!!!

The best browser I know. My favourite and default one for many years.

Lightweight (most of the whole modern browsers pool), customizable, instructive and didactic.

A lot of computing fun!

I just overwrote the last zip folder with this one and it crashed once only. Seems fine now.

Light weight, and very fast browser. The only issue that I have, it crashes when I close out of it on my WinXP SP3 machine.

I have latest versions installed for Firefox, Opera, Safari, K-meleon, & Chrome. K-meleon is by far the fastest of these on my particular computer (XP SP3) - your mileage may vary.

I have run this latest alpha for almost a week now, with nary a glitch. It seems even faster than prior K-mel versions. WOW!

Highly recommended BUT -- if you try alpha or beta versions of any software, then: (a) be sure to image your system drive before trialing, and (b) expect to deal with some issues along the way.

I've been using this for a few months and agree that it is one of the best slim, portable browsers but I prefer the K-Meleon CCF ME build.

It's a lot faster than this one and has all the same features although it's missing the Hotlist. Compare for yourself.

Adblock plus is supported in K-Meleon :)

Ad blocking is easy with hosts man. But this browser does support css ad block style lists anywho. And for portability u can use password safe.

Very refreshing not to have to hunt down a bunch of addons & bs skins etc that just take up more of my time.

Very fast, probably the fastest browser around the web today! NO Opera is not fast and NO neither is Safari, which is a poor attempt for a browser.
K-Meleon works really good with almost any hangups or freezes what so ever,plays anything anywhere superb, and is the first of the Gecko browser after Netscape Navigator. So the producers have had a long time of correcting and testing all to nearly perfection.
I would absolutely prefer this browser b4 all the Chineese IE clones whick sux all of them.
K-Meleon ROCKS!

A very good work. It would be interesting to include an ads filter.
