I think it's one of the most inaccurate browser of all times.
I've tried to use it by curiosity. A horror.
Actually, I prefer Avant browser which already has Trident and Gecko engine and will add the Webkit soon.
I get less problems in Avant especially when using Gecko engine. Avant is faster and more stable than Lunascape
I used this for a week a while back and it was decent but ended up having problems with flash, some pages not loading, and a handful of other things but the one that got me was it would not work with PCtools Firewall. Of course there were questions as to why and I didn't have them. If I uninstalled my firewall, it would work. I even did a complete OS install, all fresh and same issue, worked until firewall was installed. I could use Windows Firewall but even trying Comodo with it caused crashing, even when shutting the firewalls off, as long as installed, the issue pursued.
I did report to Lunascape and they are very helpful, however, it wasn't enough to keep me using it and I went back to Firefox.
I think it's an OK browser and engine switching is nice, but I feel it's TOO packed to be dependable. I love the looks of it and some other aspects but once again, just not enough to keep me interested.
As another stated, I can't find a lot of security information on Lunascape, I can only assume security through engine type but no, nothing on security. If they update the engine regularly, it's just the interface not being used and security should "I say should lightly" apply. Currently, I'll stay with Firefox.
I'm impressed, but this browser is definitely not for the average user.
Lunascape gives me all three rendering engines in one open browser. As a web developer, I need to view each site I'm working on in all browsers. Using Lunascape, there's much less switching involved, just set up each tab with a different engine and compare the results.
I use Vista Ultimate 64 bit and I use IE7, not extremely happy with it but IE does render where I go correctly. On the down side of IE I have to constantly monitor and delete. Lunascape is noticeably slow and my 3rd party pop up blocker (Ad Muncher) does not work so I see ads all over the place, not good. I'm not thrilled with FF and even less thrilled with Googles Browser, I like Opera but I have problems on some web sites. as for IE add ons Maxthon does well but do not use it as with a few settings IE does as well. If Lunascape addresses my 2 main concerns I believe I would switch as it does offer a great deal
Nicely designed and worked perfectly,but in practice all three engines functioned similarly, possibly WebKit slower than expected.
So for me its only useful purpose,apart from the novelty value, would be as a substitute for Chrome, but only if the engine can be made to perform as well. Lunarscape does offer a more complete interface,
