I needed a fast low resource fulll featured browser for my 10 inch Windows 8.1 tablet, which only has 2 gigabytes of ram. I went looking for a new browser after I discovered Google Chrome was eating up tons of ram with only 5 tabs open (one video playing) memory usage was at 75 percent. I found Polarity and was very impressed. I compared Polairty to Google Chrome and Internet Explorer on a new Windows8.1 install and each first run. Each browser had 5 tabs open but simultaniously playing a video in each tab. Polarity was the lowest memory usage and cpu usage with Polarity maxing out at 45 percent of my memory usage from my base of 32 percent at startup. Thats only a differance of 12 percent over Google Chrome's 43 percent ! Internet Explorer did a little better than Google Chrome at 56 percent usage for the 5 tabs and 5 videos but it maxed out my quad core CPU at 100 percent. Polarity didn't get above 65 percent on CPU. Polarity is my new go to default browser hands down. I love the apps and google app integration,fast pageloading and super low resource usage. Nothing else I've seen comes close. Bravo Polarity Team, I hope you guys keep developing this awesome browser. Thank you.
It's an OK but it needs Extension support, we use a browser like Chrome and Firefox because of the Extensions, how am I suppose to use IDM completely (I'm a big user of the Link Integration Module), and Dashlane. Additionally, there's an error that keeps popping out whenever I open Polarity -- It's Privoxy and the error log says 2013-12-10 07:20:05.771 00000da4 Error: Ignoring unrecognized directive 'ï»¿' (4294966461U) in line 1 in configuration file (config.txt).
You have done nice work. I have more to check out, but it seems stable enough so far. Hopefully, all the Chromium add-ons will work, too (Well, most of them, anyway - it is not necessary that ALL work in a browser). But you may want to rewrite your blurb. The meaning of the word "simplistc" is not as simple as you seem to think. You are insulting yourself and your browser by using it. "Simple", or even the more theatric "Life - uncomplicated" would be better choices. Best of luck to you. Keep up the good work.
Stable and works.
