    "Caused svchost.exe to use 1/2gb + 1/2gb virtual memory"

    August 21, 2011  |   By integrator97

    Version: Lunascape 6.5.3

    Pros

    3 rendering engines, would be great if it were clean.

    Cons

    Seems to have malware/adware.

    Summary

    Seemed good when I installed it, worked well. Later Kindle for PC would pause or lock up when it was the only thing open. Tried to open Lunascape, pc locked up completely. Noticed 1 svchost.exe was using over 500mb of memory, and over 600mb of virtual memory. After uninstalling program have had malware/adware problems, in both Opera and IE. I've never had a problem in Opera. Any link would open an ad page, last time I opened Opera, pages (tabs) were just opening one after another, with Chinese or Japanese characters. Used Spybot; MalwareBytes; and Ad Aware (all 3 found things). Still had to reinstall Opera to get rid of it in there (so far).

    "THE BEST BROWSER. Fast browser, few memory used."

    August 13, 2011  |   By capitanflorius

    Version: Lunascape 6.5.3

    Pros

    Lunascape is the world's only triple engine browser.
    What this means is that you can have the best features, performance, and speed of Windows Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Apple Safari all in one browser.

    Cons

    None cons at all at this moment.

    Summary

    Lunascape can view any website in an optimal way without a need to open another browser. Yeah, that's right.
    On top of that, this browser technology realizes one of the fastest browsing speed and provides you with full of features.
    Lunascape can import and install ad on from Firefox and other browsers, it can theremore import favorite bookmarks from all browser.
    High customizable in all his part (even if this require a bit of time.
    Its installation requires a little time, because it must download and install the triad (Trident) + (Gecko) + (WebKit), but it's worth it.
    At first launch Jobit malware fighter has found a malware, once blocked (probably a false positive). However, after blocking that, the program worked well and nothing more has occurred.
    I was impressed by this browser and I recommend it to all users.

    "It's ok :-)"

    July 16, 2011  |   By theedman22

    Version: Lunascape 6.5.1

    Pros

    Lite, at least lighter than IE. Isn't it based off of IE?

    Cons

    Not as light (fast) as big-daddy Chrome. :-) Chrome's the bomb!

    Summary

    If you want a browser that works faster than IE and has some cool benefits (features - check them out. It won't bite you!), then check out Lunascape.

    "Really is a triple engine browser."

    June 7, 2011  |   By donkey22

    Version: Lunascape 6.5

    Pros

    It has Trident, Gecko, & Apple Webkit rendering engines to use in single browser. Includes various plugins, & extensions including Firefox ones.

    Cons

    Outdated updates on rendering engines. Still on Firefox 3.6.17 while latest Firefox version is at 4.01. Somewhat unresponsive at times.

    Summary

    The only browser that I know of that has more than 2 different rendering engines to view web pages in a single browser. Maxthon has Webkit, & Trident, or Internet Explorer's rendering engine, but LunaScape adds the Gecko engine from the Mozilla Firefox. I would like to make it clear though that the Webkit engine in Lunascape is that of Apple Safari, not Google Chrome. The difference between Chrome's version of Webkit, and Safari's is that they have a different JavaScript engine for processing JavaScript. When running the Webkit engine, it feels "VERY" similar to Safari when going through websites. The only engine that Lunascape is missing is really just Opera's Presto Engine from the Opera Web Browser, but it's closed source, and doesn't come bundled with the operating system like Internet Explorer is. Lunascape could be a useful tool for web developers who want to test their web content, however developers want up to date standards display as web development continues to grow. Installing the browser is pretty easy, however setting it up presented a bit of challenge as the default interface of Lunascape is jumbled up full of toolbars, & buttons in which you would want to organize. It takes some to find all the settings & what they do since you are dealing with a full featured browser with three browsing engines no less. Sometimes I think there is a lack of responsiveness. For example, I type in a address, then hit enter, nothing happens. Every other browser goes to the address I typed when I hit enter. It's not all too surprising that Lunascape consumes a lot of RAM especially when you activated all three rendering engines of Apple Webkit, Mozilla's Gecko, and Microsoft's Trident engines in the same browser. It's almost like having three browsers in one. The browser though can be good enough to be your primary browser, or default browser if you have a good enough computer. As for the plugins, and extensions, I have not tested them, but from what I can gather, basically Lunascape is just a shell on top of three browsers. You can see this in the options settings in each of the rendering engines as they pop up Firefox settings menu, likewise Safari's settings menu, so I imagine that extensions & plugins work fine, or not really the problem of Lunascape itself, but rather hosted engines. I noticed some small icons in Lunascape are empty as I see empty placeholders on things that I assume suppose to have icons. The browser gives you a choice of a default rendering engine, and you can open new tabs between the three rendering engines as well change your current tab viewing too. I would also like to point out that Lunascape is IE8 compatible, which in significant, because there is a plethora of IE based browsers that only display in IE7, or compatibility view in IE8, so the browser displays things the way IE8 does, and not IE7 display. I don't know about IE9 since I don't have IE9, and never used IE9. I am still on Windows XP Pro. Overall I say Lunascape is very promising, and the only browser that I know of that includes not 2, but 3 major rendering engines. As I said before, this could be a useful tool for web developers who can conveniently use a single browser interface to test their web content across Gecko, AppleWebkit, and Trident, but also browser for casual web exploration, & usage. The options menus are a bit confusing, & the browser feels like "everything including the kitchen sink" was thrown at it including trying to be 3, or 4 different browsers at once, so naturally it can get a multiple personality weirdness to Lunascape.
