Download setting

I noticed when downloading I didn't get a prompt to select where to drop the file. Instead it just droped it into $EXEDIR\Data\Settigns\file.bleh. Other than that the only error was the PA Format version that I pointed out earlier. Should be 1.1.0

Some Changes

I think Ryan is right and we should leave the bookmarks bar in its default location and with the default bookmarks intact. We'll add our PortableApps.com bookmark just after the QTWeb bookmark, though and keep our start.portableapps.com homepage.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

That is called a false

That is called a false positive. most virus scanners don't like some files that are compressed by UPX. please advise your vender that this isn't a virus at all but only a false positive by the fact the dll's are compressed using upx

English Only

I'm pretty sure QTWeb is English only right now.

Peacekeeper browser benchmark results

I ran QTWeb through the Peacekeeper browser benchmark at service.futuremark.com/peacekeeper, to compare it with the results I got for IE7 on my computer at work.

QTWeb performed INCREDIBLY well! It got a benchmark score over 2000 while IE7's was only around 400. It also beat out K-Meleon and Opera. (The security settings won't let me run Chrome or Firefox, even when portable).

QTWeb is now my default browser on my work computer.

Tonight I'll benchmark it on my computer at come and compare it to IE8, Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Opera and Lunascape.
