    "Poor non-standard design"

    June 10, 2010  |   By spartain


    Pretty fast and snappy - and quicker than Firefox.


    Its non-standard design is a real pain. There is no top menu and the user is required to figure out where everything is, including the setting up.


    There really should be a top menu. It's a real shame that this fast browser has been let down by idiot developers who's misplaced geek egos has led then to producing this awful layout. I wanted to check the version number - but no Help drop-down, because there's no top menu. I wanted to set the home page, but I couldn't because there's no top menu. Complete idiots. About to uninstall this crap now and try Avant.

    Um... there is a top menu... Its very easy to find if you just made an effort to find it.
    Just because you are used to other browsers, it doesn't mean you shouldn't take a little time to learn a new one. I'll bet once you use it for a little while you'll come to find out that the layout is pretty perfect.
    Why would you give a bad review due to the fact that you are too lazy to learn the layout?? Hmmm...
