I'm a total beta coward I'm afraid

(Never got round to Vista at all and I'm going nowhere near 64 bit for some time yet!)

Let's know when you guys have all the foibles sorted

Downloaded it yesterday and its running fine. Haven’t had a problem with any websites so far. Seems quicker than IE8 and looks a bit like Google Chrome to me.
I’m a sucker for betas and trial versions and I tend to try most of them and I’ve never had any problems – maybe I’m lucky?

One problem I have is that the Bank never seems to get round to new browsers while they are still in Beta

'Haven’t had a problem with any websites so far.'

Just for starters try it with McAfee - not supported. Alliance & Leicester online banking - will not connect. Trusteer Rapport security software - not supported. Plus lots more!

I bank online with HSBC and the Rapport software works fine. I only said that the websites I've visited have been OK, not every website in the world!
