The people who developed the Avant Browser
is coming up with another browser, the Orca Browser
. This new browser, which is based on Firefox 3, boasts of features that you can get in Firefox if you tweak the settings and load it with a lot of add-ons. So this should look like a Firefox on vitamins.
I heard that it is faster than Firefox but when I tried it myself I did not see any difference in speed. If there is a difference the average user would not notice it. Or is it because I did not tweak its settings, I just tested it directly after I installed it.
The look and feel of this browser is, as far as I am concerned, a cross between Firefox 3 and IE 7. It has all the things you get from Firefox 3 but of course they are arranged differently. The Menu bar is in a somewhat difficult position (for me) because I am used to having it on the left. They have moved it to the right. But this is a minor thing, one will get used to it in a few hours of use. Overall I think this browser is worth checking out.
Anyway, you can check the thing out here
. It's in the beta stage though.
