    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.
