    I said in the description that I was late.

    I only found it by accident and realised that no-one had posted it.
    I just tried it... Takes some getting used to...

    By late he meant someone already posted it.

    I'm using the browser right now for my rss and so far as long as you use/know firefox's interface you can't get confused.

    my first impression in the browser is like a pop-up browser, it feels light. I'm hoping a full gtalk support on the browser in the near future.

    They need to have the ability to add add-ons and also live bookmarks but it is still fast comparatively
