I’m not sure what I think.
On the one hand I feel that browsers do need an overhaul. When they crash (and they do) they take everything down. SSBs show us that parts of the web are actually applications and should be treated as such. The security models in most browsers are built around concepts that no longer make sense.
On the other hand: why create yet another browser? Safari, Firefox, IE and now this one?
But maybe the market needs another shake up. Safari & Webkit shook things up a little but because it only runs reliably on OS X it ultimately didn’t have much impact; except maybe as an example of how much a web page can look if the browsers supported more features.
Either way, I can’t wait till the Linux and Mac versions come out.
I like using it for some things, like Gmail and the other Google apps it was specifically designed to work with, but until it can match the addon goodness of Firefox, it definitely won’t be replacing it any time soon.
Well, that and I need a Linux and Mac OS versions… ;-)
I noticed that all the various animation things (like ui.jQuery’s demo) caused bouncing around like it doesn’t calculate the offset correctly.
I assumed things like that will be fixed. They did mention they weren’t really ready for an announcement.
