I tried this out, but it crashed

I tried this out, but it crashed on me a few times. Granted it is still very early. I also didn't seem much that was particularly unique about it, unless I am missing something.

I am really in need of a more robust

I am really in need of a more robust web browser. Firefox crashes on me all the time, so I use Swiftfox which seems to help out a lot. With heavy use the interface doesn't hang though. Tabs just don't cut it. Bookmarks, are fairly useless nowadays, as well. If you're gonna do a new browser, at least make the interface radically different. For example try getting rid of the menubar in replacement of pie menus. Or try and move beyond tabs, with something that is more extensible. Or maybe even create a browser with OpenGL support for arranging "tabs" or windows, like COMPIZ. There is a lot of options, that I haven't seen explored, it's depressing when it's just a clone of every other interface we've seen from a web browser. Perhaps their explorations are more transparent to the user...
