Good news! Good news! After 3 year years,orca browser finally alive again. It just updated its engine to firefox 7.0, the latest.
Another thing I need to say is that orca browser is no more a separated browser since now,It will exist as a part of Avant browser. What you need to do is just switch the rendering engine to firefox.
One browser means two.Great!

Actually, Orca browser has been around for a while. It only fairly recently began using firefox as a base rather than internet explorer (it switched because firefox is better), and was originally based on my old browser, Avant. So it's not actually a firefox clone, since it was originally a totally different browser with its own set of features (autofills was my favorite before I discovered LastPass), but it saw a good thing in firefox and decided to merge features

This build seems pretty fast. I like Orca but I will have to give it 4 stars because the mouse gestures dont seem to work that well. If you dont move your mouse far enough you get a popup and it doesnt follow through.

"Dohickey", I appoligize for not getting back to you sooner. But, open up the options window, click on miscellaneous on the left towards the bottom and the checkbox for show splash screen is the first one on the list. Uncheck it and you will not see the splash screen anymore.. And yes, turning it off does make it faster, since it has one less thing to load when opening.

Thanks statm1, (notice I spelled your name correctly) but is that in the new build or the old build?
I couldn't find the splash screen option & I looked at everything. 3 or 4 times over.
I did try selecting the Live mail from the (other) option and it wasn't showing up anyplace. After 30 minutes of looking, I just gave up.
This is the last version I'm talking about. Not this new one.
PS: does taking away the show splash screen make it load faster? if not I'm not interested in Orca.

DoHicky, you can turn off the splash screen from within Misc in the Options Window. You can also select Windows Live Mail by adding it to the "Other Program" option instead of Outlook Express.

I didn't really have much trouble with this browser.
I don't like and wish we had the option to stop the Orca splash start up. (I also don't like the same thing happening with the Seamonkey browser) It doesn't hide the fact that your browsers take longer to load, so please don't try & fool us with a start up splash.

After the uninstall, I had to manually go into the temp folders and delete the images this browser had saved. I see they didn't fix that problem.

When trying to choose an email option for Orca, it wouldn't let me choose the Windows Live Mail, only outlook express. Windows Live is suppose to be an upgrade from Outlook, or so I thought.
Anyway, it's not bad, just work out the problems & take our suggestions to heart.

I think this might be a great browser. Is really fast and does not slow down like Avant or IE.The problems I have found, is copy and paste does not work very well. Clicking on different tabs does not always work. I have to click 2-3 times and then sometimes the page is exited because a double click exits the page.
Sometimes clicking on links does not work, I have to click off of the page, or a different part of the page, then reclick the link. And then today I had a problem getting Adobe Flash to install plugins. Please fix and get the second release out.

I'm just going to copy and paste my review of Avant because while this might have a different engine it seems to have the same problems oddly enough.

More and more flash heavy sites are causing problems for my Opera browser and since I have used and hate firefox and that terribly buggy maxthon I gave this a go. and now I will promptly give it a quick purge. The very first site I went to (nhl.com) crashed it and Orca
