Review: Roccat for Mac offers compact Web browsing, but needs a makeover

Discover an easy, new way of browsing the Web with Roccat for Mac.

Looking for a compact and powerful Web browser designed for all your multitasking needs? Roccat for Mac offers many options, customizable features, and overall good performance. However, while this browser makes surfing the Web fun and easy, it could use a makeover.

Once the application has downloaded, you are immediately ready to start browsing. With a simple interface that resembles Safari, Roccat for Mac is a basic browser ideal for multi-tab browsing. Users have the option of importing bookmarks and settings from other browsers, too. The toolbar is elementary and is equipped with a URL shortener. A neat feature to check out is Undercover Browsing, which does not store sites visited in your history. Another, possibly more useful feature is the Social Tab at the top that allows you to share your Web page findings in several different ways including via social media sites, e-mail, and direct messaging, as well as through Roccat Flick, which is a service for Roccat and Mac OS users, exclusively. With lightning-fast page loads, effortless bookmarking, and the notable VisiTabs feature that allows for page previews, this browser is certainly worth trying. The only fault with Roccat is its visual appearance, which is not too appealing. The close colors of the toolbars, bookmark bars, and background screen colors all blend and diminish the browser's appeal.

Roccat for Mac could be an ideal download for those seeking a powerful, fast browser that can also easily organize and store Web pages and Web site information. However, its visual appearance may put off those who are more accustomed to the glitz and glam of other browsers. Appearances aside however, this browser is definitely worth trying.
