    "Alright browser. Fast enough. Have seen better."

    April 26, 2009  |   By An_Onuma

    Version: K-Meleon 1.5.2

    Pros

    Browser is fast. Simple easy to use beginning interface.

    Cons

    Not nearly as configurable as it says. Tried some skins and it change the buttons all around. The easiest to use is the skin it starts out with.

    Summary

    Decent speed of browser. Has decent downloading time. Nothing special as to the configurability of it, because it's too complicated. Maxthon is better for the skinning, but slower on the surfing. So if you want something fast and simple, K-Meleon will do the trick.

    "The fastest and most light weight browser!"

    April 17, 2009  |   By Rodman97

    Version: K-Meleon 1.5.2

    Pros

    Very lightweight, stable, FAST, secure and it doesn't interfere with your work. The most underrated browser on the Internet.

    Flash, javascript, popups etc. can be turned off / on with a click of a button.

    Cons

    Bookmarks could be made easier to navigate and manipulate. I also miss the option to drag an URL from the address bar and drop it onto the personal bookmarks bar, but the similar effect can be achieved through the bookmarks menu.

    Summary

    I almost never bother to write reviews about programs, but this little gem really deserves it. I am forced to use an older PC, and in the past several years browsing has become a real chore because webpages have become overloaded with javascript, flash and intensive graphics. I switched to Firefox in late 2004 and used it until the end of 2008, when it was starting to become just as bad as IE. Then I found K-Meleon. It has the same core engine as Firefox (gecko) but the inteface is MUCH more light weight and the overall feeling while browsing is superb. it is a perfect blend of a fast, secure and efficient browser. If you feel IE is lacking in security and speed and FF is just plain overbloated, it's time to switch to K-Meleon!

    "The Fastest and the lightest browser !!!"

    April 3, 2009  |   By abdullahalamin

    Version: K-Meleon 1.5.2

    Pros

    The Fastest and the lightest browser !!!

    Cons

    The Fastest and the lightest browser !!!

    Summary

    I recently did a comparison for the available browsers and I finally have to say that I found K-Meleon the fastest one and even the lightest. I mean you should give it a try and compare and see the difference and notice the speed of page loading.
    Really amazing.

    "Pretty good browser."

    March 25, 2009  |   By donkey22

    Version: K-Meleon 1.5.2

    Pros

    Pretty fast. It's stable, and has flexible cache settings. In addition it has typical browser features such as tabs. It has plugin support as well though not as numerous as Firefox along with skinnable interface. Uses little memory.

    Cons

    There is no import/export feature of bookmarks directly into your bookmark group. Instead you have three different bookmark categories of IE, Opera, and Netscape, which you can't directly organize with each other than copying, and pasteing URL links.

    Summary

    Browser uses the Gecko engine of Mozilla, but with flexible adjustable cache settings. I set RAM cache to automatic, and disk cache to 50MB. It goes through web pages real well for the most part, and the RAM usage is still very low. This browser is nice alternative to IE8, Firefox, and other browsers that use a lot of memory, yet comparably fast, or even faster.

    "I've tried them all : K-Meleon is simply the best !"

    March 15, 2009  |   By agau54

    Version: K-Meleon 1.5.2

    Pros

    It is fast and stable. What more do I need to enjoy the web: only a fast and stable browser. And believe me, this one is simply the best. Some others might do the job correctly, while some won't. But K-Meleon does it perfectly.

    Cons

    Maybe some more plugins would be welcomed, but a browser does'nt need to have several plugins.

    Summary

    Opera and Firefox are great browsers too, but I've always switched back to K-Meleon, which is the most underrated browser. You've got to give it a try.

    "Best browser on the planet. A must have!"

    February 25, 2009  |   By kittekiller

    Version: K-Meleon 1.5.2

    Pros

    Safe, Fast, frequent updates. Can be obtained without installer. Virtually portable.
    Small system requirements. Renders most web sites exceptionally well.

    Cons

    None at all.

    Summary

    I have been using K-meleon for almost a year and it beats IE or Firefox. I use it for online banking and general browsing. It's fast, crashes almost never happen with this browser. 1.5.2 seems to work as well as any previous versions of the software.

    "Bad News! Downloading K-Meleon 1.52 will ruin your 1.51"

    February 4, 2009  |   By rmchavin

    Version: K-Meleon 1.5.2

    Pros

    K-Meleon 1.5.1 was very useful and fun to use. But when I made the mistake of downloading K-Meleon 1.5.2, I ended up uninstalling 1.5.2 because it only works in the beginning. It won't work after you close K-Meleon once and restart it!

    Cons

    K-Meleon 1.5.2 works immediately after you download it but the moment you close it and then restart it, all your bookmarks will be erased and the browser will stop working and become useless. Downloading previous version (1.5.1 or 1.5.0) won't work!

    Summary

    If you make the mistake of downloading K-Meleon 1.5.2, you will end up uninstalling it. You will then use System Restore to try to uninstall everything including the part that lingers in your computer. You'll then try to download 1.5.1 or 1.5.0 or 1.1.6 to try to get back the fun and useful K-Meleon browser you had been using. Surprise! It'll only work in the beginning. If you close it once then restart K-Meleon, it won't work anymore and all your bookmarks and preferences will be erased. You'll end up uninstalling K-meleon browser and doing without it forever. Fortunately, it won't affect any of your other browsers or programs and your computer will still work just fine.

    "It is fast, doesn't lock up. Great Browser!!"

    January 28, 2009  |   By Ken_Adrian

    Version: K-Meleon 1.5.2

    Pros

    K-Meleon is a very good browser. It brings up webpages very fast. It doesn't freeze up. It has nice themes. I think it is one of the fastest browser out on the market.

    Cons

    It would be nice if you could add toolbars on it, like google or yahoo.

    Summary

    Bottom Line: It is a very fast and a great browser. Try it, you will like it.

    "Very nice and fast browser - among the best"

    January 1, 2009  |   By kvotal

    Version: K-Meleon 1.5.2

    Pros

    Very good tool for the avarage consumer - fast, stable and has some very good options.

    Cons

    Does not support some of the web pages.
    Does not support Firefox add-ons - if you need these.
    A bit complicated Settings in my opinion.

    Summary

    I use both Firefox and K-Meleon. Both are good, but for "standart" internet surfing seems that K-meleon is a bit faster. I also like the possibility to choose the theme - there are some nice themes.

    I love it and would recommend this product for the avarage users that first of all interested in fast internet surfing and less in the other things.

    "My new favorite browser!"

    December 31, 2008  |  

    Version: K-Meleon 1.5.2

    Pros

    Very fast, renders pages accurately tiny footprint (uses about a third of the memory that firefox does on Vista), high degree of customizability. Runs on lower end machines without hiccup.

    Cons

    Minimal interface (no eyecandy). Limited support for mozilla add-ons

    Summary

    This is the my current browser of choice. Try it- this thing is fast! I almost never have to use another browser for compatibility, and usually its on the microsoft homepage or something ridiculous like that, so then *cough* explorer. More compatible than Opera, actually, to my surprise. Smaller footprint and faster than the overhyped chrome. Plus, its opensource and free, you don't need to worry about where your information is going and what is happening to it. Definately worth a shot, but once again the default interface, although highly customizable will not win any fashion contests.
