    "Speedy little booger"

    October 20, 2010  |   By finalrain

    Pros

    Runs fast, easy to use, great features, wastes less screen real estate by default.

    Cons

    Lacks Firefox's AwesomeBar feature or anything similar to it.

    Summary

    This is by far my favorite web browser. It keeps everything simple and doesn't hide features deep inside a dozen different menus. It has great performance even on netbooks, and doesn't suffer from Firefox and Opera's memory leak explosions.

    The bookmark system could use a bit of work. It's not well integrated into the address bar as is the case with Firefox, and if you bookmarked something a long time ago, you may not be able to find it again.

    That said, I have it open about 100% of the time and I only have to restart it when a new version becomes available. Great software.

    You're not the brightest one. This isn't firefox so of course there is no cheesy awesome bar. Second, the bookmark system works perfectly. If you bookmark something and search for part of it in the omnibar, your bookmark shows up. I don't know what you're talking about. perhaps you need glasses.

    So...4 stars because it's not Firefox?
