    excellent workhorse. very stable. uses a little more memory than firefox rc2, but does it matter? get i7 chipset and get 20 gigs of memory.

    I'm not sure why people are bashing this browser. I would assume they are the anti-microsoft crowd. Regardless, I am using this browser and am quite pleased. It has some fresh new ideas and some borrowed ideas from FF. From FF it borrowed the bookmark bar and the search bar. Great stuff. The security of this browser seems great also with all the anto-phising tools, the url color coding, etc. More good stuff. I use FF daily also and IE8 is as fast. No, IE8 does not score 100% on ACID 3, but so what -- it renders all websites I visit just fine. I wish there was an integrrrattteed spell checker (like FF) and it needs a couple of other personal UI tweaks, but overall this is a VERY GOOD browser.

    No stars for this rubbish . Ive downloaded three times now and every time it takes minutes to open , never connects to its homepage and takes 5 minutes at least to close the browser . Totally unusable on my PC . 5 stars to Maxthon , no trouble whatsoever .

    I regret updating to this piece of crap. It's slower, and it crashes. MSIE 7 NEVER crashed on me, not that I used it much. This turd runs multiple copies of itself in the background, for reasons unknown to me. I see no improvements that matter to me anywhere. And no matter how I configure it (even using IEPro), new links sometimes overwrite the current tab, and other times do not. It's really annoying to be listening to, only to have the tab overwritten when you thought a new one would open.
