    I ran GDE for the past day. Was working fine until tonight, when the same problem rose up like the last time I uninstalled GDE. I was able to browse the web but text messaging wasn't going through, the widgets weren't updating (SportsTap) and FoxNews, and then I noticed my Beautiful Widget time wasn't updating. I tried downloading something from Market and it wouldn't download. This issue went on until I went back to the default Home and still wasn't working right. I went to Taskiller and killed everything using the widget, and then things started to work again. I'm using Home++ again like I had been using trouble free the past week and the problem seems resolved.

    Something with GDE and Widgets, most notably Beauiful Widgets Time and temp one completely stops.

    I have been running GDE for a few hours now and the only problems i see with it is on the home screen that i am trying to keep games only it started to FC when i went into the app bin to drag an icon up to the home screen... it took forever to fill that screen with 16 icons! And the wallpaper issue... but i'm willing to settle on that one cause the cube is just too damn cool... so i guess if now that my games screen is full it looks like i'll be fine.... hopefully.... dxTop tricked me for about 24 hours before it went nuts on me :icon_ devil:

    Just the stock browser. I tried dolphin and did not care for it. But many others enjoy using that browser.

    I have Panda and GDE, but have not checked to make one a default. I'm still leery about having a problem with a non-stock home page and not being able to get the phone going if there was a problem. Yesterday for the first time I press the power to bring it out of sleep mode and the screen stayed black. I had to remove the battery to get it to boot up correctly.

    Nice video, I was frustrated until recently about the application dock. I saw another video (no words, just music) which showed it in action, but not what it was.

    For me I think the stock browser renders web pages the best and is faster at loading pages then anything available thus far. Also the whole pinch zoom thing is not for me, much easier to just double tap.

    No... GDE is in the market as well. It is like 3 bucks. But just search "GDE The new home" it comes right up.
