Browser of the Week: Chrome Conclusions

12 September 2008 by Matthew Gertner - Category: Reviews

I cannot tell a lie. I hardly used Chrome this week. The problem, as I mentioned when I kicked off this Browser of the Week installment, is that my primary work computer is my Mac Book Air (from which I access my Mac Pro remotely to do development). I don’t even have Parallels on my [...]


Browser of the Week: Flock Impressions

16 May 2008 by Matthew Gertner - Category: Reviews

I’ve been using Flock all week, and I have to say that I’m pretty impressed. Flock is way out in front of the pack in driving innovation in the browser space (although Mozilla is catching up with their various Labs efforts). It’s refreshing to see a vendor thinking big and experimenting with adding all kinds [...]


Browser of the Week: Flock

I’ll be using the Flock 1.1 this week as part of my occasional Browser of the Week series, posting my thoughts and impressions on Friday. Please leave a comment if there are particular features of Flock that I absolutely positively must put through their paces. I’m definitely planning to try out as much of their [...]

15 February 2008 by Matthew Gertner - Category: Reviews

My week-long adventure with Opera is coming to a close, and it’s undeniably a solid, professional product.

Rewind takes you to the first page you [...]


Browser of the Week, Opera Woes

I’ve had a couple of problems with Opera today. The first is the Google Reader issue I mentioned yesterday. It seems to occur when I scroll down the items in a feed using the mouse wheel. At a certain point, the feed window stop scrolling and the whole pane moves up, leaving a bunch of [...]


A Week at the Opera, Initial Impressions

11 February 2008 by Matthew Gertner - Category: Reviews

Today we kick off Just Browsing’s ongoing Browser of the Week series. I installed Opera on my MacBook Pro this morning, though I couldn’t cut the Firefox umbilical cord entirely and I’m still using it on my other computer (a Windows XP box). I’ll be delving into some of the more notable Opera features over [...]


Browser of the Week, Coming Soon

5 February 2008 by Matthew Gertner - Category: Reviews

Last week I promised that my “Browser of the Week” series would begin on Monday. Due to unforeseen circumstances, it will kick off next week. The first browser to go under the microscope will be Opera. If Opera does anything special that I absolutely positively must take a look at, please let me know.
