You spend most of your time in front of the computer doing internet, but may not have thought about what a browser can do and which browser is right for you. In reality, each browser is different in its own way. 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 and can view any website in an optimal way without a need to open another browser and you know that using Lunascape is 100% free.

Lunascape

It’s standard set-up is highly multi-functional without installing a lot of add-ons and plug-ins. This browser has several highly effective tools for anyone working with web developing, especially in our bookmarklets. Although it is possible to add many features to other browsers through add-ons and plug-ins, many browsers tend to become slow and unstable as the number of these increase, because the add-ons and plug-ins search for updates every time the program is started. With Lunascape, all the features you need come standard, so start up is lightning fast. You can try to download here.

Lunascape certainly offers Mouse Gestures! You can set the functions you want for mouse movement while right clicking. Many people choose to make a movement to the left go “back”, a movement to the right go “forward”, and so forth. Once you have experienced the convenience of these mouse gestures, you will never be able to surf the web without them again.One of the biggest problems while browsing is crashing (when the browser is forced to automatically close). Lunascape comes equipped with crash prevention features. Only the problematic tab will be closed, preventing the crash of the browser itself in most situations. However, in the event that a crash does occur, Lunascape allows you to restart the program at the same pages you were viewing immediately before the crash.

A “bookmarklet” function that you can use to check a site’s source code without an HTML Editor comes standard. In the “Web Development” menu below, features such as “Style Test”, “Style Sheet Display” and “List of image without Alt Text” are also installed standard.

This feature allows you to set information you have registered in your favorites, RSS feeds, and tickers to be displayed as a pop up in the lower right hand corner of your screen (or elsewhere). These pop-ups will be displayed even if the browser is housed in the task tray so you won’t miss a thing.

With Lunascape, you can display up to 100 tabs and have very precise control over all of them. You also get highly convenient tab functions such as the ability to change rendering engines between tabs and make settings such as “View banking websites with Trident, and G-mail with Gecko”. When it comes to “fast” browsing, browser launch speed is also an important factor. Lunascape has been keen on improving this speed aspect as well.

Lunascape provides a useful tool for your Internet search. Enter words in the Search Bar, select the search engine you want to use in a pull-down list and get your results without type any URL. You can also add your own favorite search engine easily if it is not already listed.

Damn…

Whilst this is very welcome, I’ve been working on a project to do just this over the past few months. A little disappointed their version looks so promising!

finally one browser to rule them all.

I don’t get it. Why would you need to be able to switch?

kinda disappointed Opera layout engine wasn’t considered…

Wow, Firefox kicks em ALL to the curb dude!

Sounds cool, but I’m with FF for life. I love being able to customize the browser any way I see fit. I’ll give it a try though.

I may be incorrect when I say this, but if I remember correctly, Opera layout engine isn’t open source, while webkit and gecko is. However then you could say, but neither is Trident, but then you realize that this only runs on windows, which means it’s most likely using trident which is in ie. What I would like to see is if this would still be able to run trident if a user uninstalls ie, such as what you can do in windows 7, however seeing that it states ie6 or later is required, I doubt it. However kudos for them in doing so.

The download is an .exe – what, no love for Mac users?

Sounds pretty interesting, I like the info about how fast it is. Does it have an ad blocker? I won’t switch to anything that doesn’t have an ad blocker. But I’ll give it a try.

i like the concept though

..but the question is why should i try others when i satisfied with one?

Thanks for introducing Lunascape, Smashing apps!
We do have love for Mac users, but it currently runs only on Windows. More demands from Mac users might fire up our dev team to make one for you.
We are working on to be compatible with Firefox add-ons, so please stay tuned. And if you care about JavaScript speed, there is another chart you might be interested. http://bit.ly/4aCqKI
As we are still a new kid in global market (have been around in Japan for 5 years though), all of your comments and suggestions are much appreciated.

I agree with Allan a few comments above. If this was Mac-compatible, then FANTASTIC – finally, a way to replicate Trident’s engine effectively for web developers using a Mac. Until then, not gonna lie, I see no reason why web developers running Windows would need this when they can just separately run each browser by itself to test out websites.

“speed of Windows Internet Explorer”?! Chrome is way faster, with Opera being in 2nd.
“highly multi-functional without installing a lot of add-ons and plug-ins”?! That’s Opera right there.
“Mouse Gestures”?! Opera offered that years ago.
“problems while browsing is crashing”?! i’ve never had Chrome crash on me.
“restart the program at the same pages you were viewing”?! Chrome, Opera, & FF all do that.
LOL, why not show a launch speed with Chrome?
i don’t need Trident. I haven’t launched IE for 2 years (except for downloading Firefox on a laptop)
Wanna make this browser actually useful? Port it to Linux

google chrome ftw

bringing up the find (ctrl f) opens a window, in the middle of page right over top what you are finding for, forcing you to move it EVERYTIME. and want to poke around the page with the find box still up? DING DING DING DING is all you’ll hear and get, you can’t touch the page.

amazon and ebay search buttons stuck next to your search box, can’t seem to remove…

no ad blocker plus. uhm yeah.. i forgot the internet really looked this bad…

i could go on, but i’ll stop. I was drawn to the download for the ability to quickly change engines (hitting an Rww webpage with firefox ftl) but its simply not worth it, maybe later.. but around 5 years already? hah. uninstalled.

nice concept agree with your content.

Obviously some of you don’t get the point of this browser. It is not for my grandma who will check her mail from time to time. Ever had to test a page in IE 6-7-8/FF/Safari ? I guess you hadn’t.

It sounds pretty interesting.
