Sunrise for Mac

CNET Editors' review

Do you prefer a light, easily-customized Web browser? Compact with a highly usable interface, Sunrise for Mac is designed for easy and reliable open-source Web browsing similar to that of Safari and Opera.

Within fewer than five clicks Sunrise for Mac is fully installed and ready for all of your Web browsing needs. The layout of this Web browser is highly user-friendly and very easy to use. Icon, list, and grid bookmark options sit on the top right, along with shortcut buttons at the top of the browser that include a screen snapshot function, bug form reporter, and an agent selector for optimal use of more than one browser at a time. The URL content space is on the left of the screen (center, if bookmarks are opted off), and a simply rendered URL and dual search bar is oriented at the top of the screen. The browser is smart and remembers the pages you were last on before closing. Downloads and pop-ups are easily managed, too. Like Safari and Chrome, it offers tabbed browsing.

Sunrise for Mac offers an ideal open-source solution for browsing the Web. It is suitable for coders and Web designers who need to manage their Web pages and review page coding at the same time--and on the same screen if need be. If you are looking for a fresh, easily-navigable browser, this one is worth a try.

    "Quick and light weight, but has its limits..."

    August 15, 2013  |   By ghokie

    Version: Sunrise 2.2.1

    Pros

    Attractive, streamlined and quick with a unique bookmarking feature that displays a thumb of the page. Bookmarks can be color labeled for categorization.

    Cons

    • Can be crash-prone (usually during some critical activity)
    • Tabs are not sandboxed, so a crash in one tab brings the whole browser down
    • Limited print options (e.g., can't print header/footers)
    • Infrequent updates (broken auto-update mechanism)
    • Accumulates a lot of pageholder files (gifs and pngs) which display in the downloads section of the sidebar - but these must be deleted from that section one x one.

    Summary

    Good to use for general surfing, but you'll probably want something more robust for online banking, as well as more process-intensive web activities.

    I find Sunrise crashing more and more, and am liking it less and less...
