    I'm using it right now and for the most part it's really nice. Pages load really fast.

    Hmmm...honestly I didn't try, I put the settings to always show the desktop version of sites. its wonky with logging in to forums sometimes so I'm back to xScope til it matures a little more lol. I couldn't even login to alldroid.

    I was using the beta of this on my Samsung Impression. It was better than the stock browser but nothing impressive. Just tried it out now and I don't like it at all. Alot of pages aren't rendered correctly. Some take forever to load. Scroll is painfully slow.

    Corinacakes: No the mobile version of this site does now work. All it gives is a menu. And it didn't prompt to the mobile version either. I had to click into it.

    I'll pass on this one.

    Tried it for five minutes and uninstalled… First test was a failure – the Google Reader mobile site. Dolphin and stock browsers display perfectly – Opera was simply a list of bulleted links. Second test was a failure - Facebook. Again, plain looking page without the formatting of even the mobile or touch site. Pages just look a lot better in the other browsers. Didn’t give it a chance beyond that. Hopefully the final version will support all page renderings and not skimp on the format. Tabbed browsing is by far the #1 requirement – multitouch, not important. If the stock browser had tabbed browsing, I'd never need an aftermarket browser again.

    How the heck do you zoom in on a page (I feel stupid for asking but I can't figure it out.)

    No multitouch? This thing has a long ways to go. Thanks for the link though Tigger.

    Woo, it's blazing fast. I love it, I don't use pinch to zoom anyways, I love the tap to zoom.

    It's not bad as a secondary browser, but it just acts a little strange. I have Opera on a laptop and it acts a little buggy there too. I don't use it all that often.

    Been using this all morning, it's not a bad browser and the pages do load faster than I'm used to. While it doesn't have pinch to zoom right now it seems unlikely that anyone developing a web browser would omit that these days considering how much of a hot topic is these days.

    I'll give it a shot, but for the moment I'll keep xScope as default. Pretty cool though.

    I'm still keeping xscope as the default, but this browser is AMAZING for image heavy websites such as Engadget.

    If only xcope could also cache images, I would pay for it again!

    This lasted 5 minutes on my Droid.
    They have a lot of work to do before this finds a permanent home on my phone.
    Dont get me wrong, Opera 4 was a life saver on my blackberry, but so far the droid default browser works just fine.
    Once this is fixed i will deff use it, because u really do save a lot of data since everything is processed on their servers and not on the phone.
    *fingers crossed for a speedy fix to this beta

    Used for a few mins and went back to the default browser. No pinch to zoom kinda put a bad taste in my mouth from the start.
