Lunascape 6

Is anyone familiar with a web browser called Lunascape 6? When I was searching for other web browsers other than Mozilla Firefox, I stumbled upon this. Lunascape is a web browser that can switch between three different rendering engines, Gecko (from Mozilla Firefox), Trident (from IE), and Webkit (Apple Safari and perhaps Google Chrome). Lunascape works great with the Gecko engine, and it seems to (try to) emulate everything about my Firefox setup, themes and all, because it transfers the setup (bookmarks, plugins, and Gecko) from Firefox.

If you have had experience with this sort of browser, I like to know what you make of it.

I retract my "great" comment

I tried playing a java based game in HD using this browser using is Gecko rendering engine, worked choppy. but loads up web pages just as fast as Firefox.

I'm tired of people living in their fantasy world when the clock is ticking away, and when they are unable to see reality for what it is.

Good in theory...

The fact that it does use the Gecko engine, the Trident engine and the Webkit engine is great news for the likes of web developers as they don't have to flick through half a dozen browsers to check whether people can view their work, just the different options in Lunascape - making installation sizes for one browser lower than the big 4 (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome and Safari). I'm installing it now so I've yet to try it but I'll come back once I do. It's a shame that they've yet to obtain a Presto layout engine plugin for the installation as opera is another common browser - especially for any internet using Nintendo consoles...

Will have to check it out,

Will have to check it out, I'm always switching browsers to test web pages, and have always liked testing against another browsers implementation of a known rendering engine anyways.
