    "Terrible, unsuable"

    March 12, 2013  |   By Jo Rhyan

    Pros

    I get to uninstall it. My IE seems like a super browser now. lol.

    Cons

    I was annoyed in just 5min. Open a page and have to sit through the prehistoric sound of popup blocker going click, click, click, click, click (I was on cnet at the time). Try to go to another page and wait an average of 40-45 seconds for page to change and then another 40-45 sec for the page to load (again waiting through the click, click, click, click). This browser was all but unusable for me.

    Summary

    I usually don't give harsh reviews even when a product doesn't work the way I wish, but this is the worst thing I have ever downloaded in the 10yrs I have been using cnet (I Loooove cnet!). I was so disappointed after reading such great reviews about it. I understand that sometimes is that one that is a bad install or something else so I tried it twice..no good! I don't like a lot of addons and extension. I use one (WOT), besides the defaults that come with the browser and I disable those if I don't need them. I enabled the adblocker in the browser and that just made things worse.

    Good luck to future users and I envy those that are using it and love it. I really wanted this to work. My IE9 is fast, but tabs crash to often and have to reload. Chrome is clunky and just flat out crashes. So I was hoping this would give me speed and stability. Not so much. I uninstalled and IE took me to Slimbrowser review and remarks page. loaded in 4secs. I guess one good thing came of this, IE seems like a monster now lol (yes I have used firefox. To clunky).
