    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.

  3. offramp13 says:

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

  4. Josh Dale says:

    kinda disappointed Opera layout engine wasn’t considered…

  5. John Wright says:

    Wow, Firefox kicks em ALL to the curb dude!


  6. Steve says:

    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.

  7. Adrian Alvarez says:

    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?

  9. Jeremy says:

    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

  11. zoro says:

    ..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.
    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.

  13. Rahul says:

    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.

  17. Eugene Donaghy says:

    Cannot install the gecko and web-kit engines (can download them but not install them)any help to install gratefully accepted

  18. Yuki@Lunascape says:

    Eugene, thanks for contacting support forum. I hope your issue is resolved by now, but if now, let us know.

  19. nits says:

    nice concept agree with your content.

  20. kaolti says:

    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.

  21. Hydraulic Valve says:

    It sounds pretty interesting.

    Cool article as for me. I’d like to read more concerning this theme.
