    Im trying this browser and first impressions are very favourable.Im just wondering what others here think of it?.It incorporates IE nad firefox and switches to each engine depending on whther the site is securly verifed or not and adjusts the security settings .I find it very fast.What are your opinions of it?

    I have been running the beta of this browser for a while now. I like the 8.0 beta real well. I downloaded the 8.0 final today and like all of the netscape finals in the past it took me twenty minutes to get rid of all the adds they see fit to put on their browser. The final comes with the weather channels desktop weather feature which I really like. over all I like it pretty well.
