    This is apparently the number 1 web browser in Japan. Doesn't look particularly special to me, has anybody here used it before?

    it's not really a browser -- it uses the Internet Explorer layout engine ("trident") and/or Mozilla's engine (Gecko) to function.
    Just like Avant Browser, MyIE2/Maxthon Browser, and so many others...
    they're good, but being based on IE (support for Gecko is low) they are, by nature, flawed.

    Flock 2 beta, based on Mozilla's Firefox 3 looks interesting too.

    No, it's a custom interface and functionality of Firefox 3 and Internet Explorer engines.
