I think the introductory video explains it better than I ever could.





So I'm running it right now, and yes it is as advertised. Plus it's based off of Google Chrome (by far the fastest browser right now) so the UI look and feel is something I'm accustomed to.

The target market is obviously heavy users of Twitter and Facebook, so if you aren't into social networking, you aren't missing much. However, I do feel it'd take some time before people start using browser-extended capabilities to actually post stuff on Twitter and Facebook - I think most people are content to go to the actual .com website to do their thing.

I have 3 invites if you want them.

EDIT: After a few hours of using it, I can definitely say that it's slower. Hmm.

I would understand how it runs slower than Chrome. It probably opens multiple pages of what you usually visit, so it probably consumes more RAM (and/or bandwidth).

Not for the low bandwidth user, I think.
