So is this Chrome with some updates? Or did they rip off the design?

I cannot verify, though, what it looks like when you actually have it installed is a look a like of Chrome, acts the same way and feels exactly like the Chrome from Google – Only difference is it has been tweaked to integrate twitter and facebook feeds.

Ironic, but what can you say? Overally inspired product.

It has Chromium as an engine. But it has a set of tweaks, and for it’s made for social networks basically. It allows you to share on Facebook, twitter, whatever.

It has extensions available for it, and basically it’s fun because it has a security measure that kind of makes it cool if you wanna keep people away from your bookmarks. The browser doesn’t start up if it’s not connected to your Facebook.

For the rest, yes, I think it’s a Chrome with a tone of new features added to it.

The best part I love about it, If I navigate to a site that offers news feeds, RSS or whatever, then it automatically shows me a + on the sidebar, I can add it to my newsreader inside the browser and each time a new feed is available I can click the icon ( shows a number like iPhone app store shows when a new update is ready ) and it will open a large tool-tip with the news feeds.

It’s great! I mean, it shows the number of new approved files on Activeden, and I can see exactly which just came in. News updates on whatever site you are.

So yeah, the right hand sidebar is quite useful if you take advantage of what it has to offer.
