    Best Browser So Far...

    I've used the default browser, Puffin and Dolphin, and so far it's been the fastest, most reliable and easiest to use browser I've encountered. Plus, it has extra "swipe" features for faster browsing. Since it's free, there's nothing to lose, but I'm still discovering the benefits. I really wish this would have been launched to the public sooner...so a message to the designers and testers...job well done, and thank you.

    Not as good as dolphin, which has direct access to your favorites with a swipe of the finger. This one has you pushing 3 buttons to get to it. Somehow not as convenient. The buttons sometimes get in the way of things or links on the page, and you cant zoom with two fingers, instead you have to double tap.

    Sigh..

    This browser works really well on the Nook Color. These negative reviewers are seriously misleading or just plain wrong. I understand if your not good w/computers/tech, but do a little research (google). Or better yet, check out the options/settings of the app before you post a review.
    this is way better then the default browser. Check out puffin and dolphin hd too.

    Sad to say the least.

    I tried this and saw that there was addons you can install only to find out that it can't install them. I was hoping that this browser would work with addons unlike dolphin, but it seems to be the same way. Plus with dolphin you can change the browser type unlike this one.

    A good MOBILE browser

    If you are wanting to navigate the internet as you would using a smart phone and quickly, this app is for you. If you want the option to view a webpage as you would on a desktop... not so much. It is disappointing to ALMOST be able to use addons and change the browser's theme, then realizing you can't; but then again, neither can the other browsers available on nook color.

    You can't go to other addresses in landscape mode. Dolphin is better.

    Has numerous problems

    - Doesn't display dropdowns correctly much of the time
    - popup overlays are almost impossible to dismiss
    - can't use gestures to zoom in/out
    - youtube and other videos crash the browser
    - JavaScript support appears to be spotty and error-prone

    Maxthon is ok for basic, fairly simple web pages. Anything more complicated and all bets are off.

    Cool

    Runs smoothly nice features. But it confuses us with android devices therefore the apps it displays makes it unreachable. And it needs a mouse like on puffin. And how do i get the android market? Besides that its the beat browser i have

    It's OK

    It's fine. If all you do is browse in ONE tab.

    But, if you, like me, are a tab feind, then this is NOT the browser for you.

    In one tab it is relitively quick, but every tab you open slows down EVERYTHING. Open 4 tabs, with anything inside, and you risk crashing the browser, or, more likely, FREEZING your Nook.

    I keep it around because it sometimes renders a page, or entire site, better than the Standard and Dolphin browsers.

    Q: It it an out of the park hit?
    A: No.

    Q: Does it display pages better than the built-in or Dolphin browser?
    A: Sometimes.

    Q: Is it a memory hog?
    A: You don't hear that squealing?

    Q: Is it your Go-To browser?
    A: Nope. That's Dolphin.

    Q: Is it worth the space it requires?
    A: I hope so, 'cause I'm keeping it.

    Decent, but Dolphin and Puffin are faster.

    I ran this browser and the three other Nook browsers, Dolphin Browser, the default Web app, and Puffin through three browser tests: Peacekeeper, SunSpider, and Speed-Battle. This one got a score of 197 on Peacekeeper, as opposed to the default browser's 196, Dolphin's 204, and Puffin's 1,642. However, Puffin failed to render graphics well enough for my purposes, and thus, despite being slower, Dolphin takes my vote as the best all-around browser for Nooks. If we ever get Chrome in a free app for the Nooks, then I'm switching, but until then...

    Needs work.

    The copy & paste works aweful! That totally needs to be fixed. Accessing bookmarks needs to be easier. When you type a search or address in the address bar, the keyboard only says "done." Them you have to tap this little arrow in the top right corner which is almost impossible to hit on the nook. This needs to be addressed. Otherwise, it is a very functionable and clean app. I like browsing with it other than the annoying issues I just stated. When those issues get addressed, I will be happy to give it five stars.
