    "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...

    "\"Fixed the 1 other bugs.\""

    Version: Sunrise 2.1.4

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    So that means Sunrise is now perfect? A browser with no bugs at all? Kewl! ;)
    Well, it runs, it's pretty fast, but... What's the point? Is there actually something about Sunrise that is useful to developers?
    Really, I'm curious. Developers, feel free to answer.

    "Rubbish !"

    May 30, 2009   |   By grh-akl

    Version: Sunrise 1.8.5

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Type ANY URL into the appropriate field, this monkey-brain browser will take you to Google.

    For me, that's a deal-breaker straight away. No point in examining further. End of the line for this tool.

    "What's with the google thing?"

    May 16, 2009   |   By blickarocks

    Version: Sunrise 1.8.5

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Over a period I've tried a few versions of this because I was attracted by the words "browser for web developer".

    The developer's site says "If the input text DOESN'T' have the URL scheme, it will be searched in web."

    Unfortunately, if the input text DOES have the url scheme it still resorts to a search engine.

    The only way I can directly access any url's is to start by hand typing the "http://" component.

    What's with that?

    "Fastest browser Ive ever used"

    March 24, 2009   |   By jsanua

    Version: Sunrise 1.8.1

    Pros

    fast, opens in less than a second, visual bookmarks, REALLY FAST!

    Cons

    slightly buggy

    Summary

    this browser is fast! it tkes less htan a second to open and load Google, while Firefox and Safari take five or so seconds to do the same thing. Sites like ign.com, which i had to wait a long time for in other browsers, load nearly instantly. Unfortunatley, the history is quirky, sometimes being accessable and sometimes not.

    "Impressive"

    May 17, 2008   |   By T Smith

    Version: Sunrise 1.7.1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I just downloaded and installed Sunrise and I'm impressed. It's built on the same source as Safari. Based on the number of releases the developers have had in the last few days, they are working hard to make this a really great browser. One unusual feature is that Bookmarks have an icon view of the page. Nice touch.

    "I'm really impressed!!!"

    January 13, 2008   |   By Ulrich Kapp

    Version: Sunrise 1.5.9

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    The last version I loaded was 1.4.9 and there was a bug I reported to the developer: When saving a webarchive of a website made use of stylesheets (with @import) and background images (of layers), then neither the stylesheets nor the background images were included.

    This bug is fixed now!!!

    I don't know in which version (between 1.4.9. and 1.5.9) but it works great and even Safari can show these webarchives.

    That's amazing, since Safari still has this bug (I reported it repeatedly to Apple with every new version/update)

    Great work!

    "FAST!!!"

    July 20, 2007   |   By jnasato

    Version: SunriseBrowser 1.1.3

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    The web developer tools are nice, but it is also just a nice broswer. At 1.1 MB- what in the world?!- this thing is amazing, and ridiculously fast! I recommend it to anyone who has experienced slow java games- or slow loading anything- because this browser loads everything almost instantly. Simply amazing.

    Good job developer, and I look forward to the browser's future!

    Summary

    Just downloaded, and know for a fact this app is gonna be useful.

    As someone learning (X)HTML and CSS and forever looking under the hood of every web page I ever access, SunriseBrowser seems to have been tailor made for my needs.

    Outstanding!

    Thank you.
