    Good. It's lightness and speed makes me feel much happier than using Firefox. I just printed with it! While the feature listing says it does not supports printing!(And that was about to make me give up on it before even testing it). The only real issue I've seen is "Rarely incorrect font rendering", that is, in my mail site( regular mail titles are incorrectly shown as bold, just equal to bold ones, while Firefox does not do that. @freddy92: You probably have an anti-virus that tries to scan encrypted(https) connections, like Kaspersky. These anti-viruses install something like a driver in the middle, catching all the connections. It's like a man-in-the-middle attack, but there's actually security job taking place. So to open all https sites, the browser would need the Kaspersky https certificate as well. These anti-viruses typically install their certificate for browsers automatically to enable them opening https sites, but probably not for browsers that are installed later. That is the case with Kaspersky(and probably some other anti-viruses). So you have to install anti-virus' certificate manually. You can find instructions for how to do this in your anti-virus program by searching of course.

    It's really good, actually. But lots of sites inaccessible - "Your connection is not secure" with no option to add exceptions. I mean... How harmful is, for instance? All those sites open in other Mozilla-based browsers - except this one, Light.

    Does what it says, haven't used it for long yet but it's pretty straightforward But then again, I don't really use most of the features in firefox so this works great for me like the clean interface that firefox used to have

    As long as HTML5 keeps being supported, that is the main thing. The second main thing is addon compatibility which has to suffer due to items being excluding from the build. So please, just tell us what you exclude so we can better predict addon compatiblity/conflicts. Just tested Light 48, and its working great. Awaiting Light 49 64 bit. Since you unlikely have a large team of devs behind you, I would focus on the 64 bit version. Don't worry most users are not adventurers when it comes to browsers and even the ones that are are likely to go back the moment they find out something does not work. This is the reason Windows remain #1. The people getting light are people looking for better performance so why bother with the 32 bit variant. Make the best 64 version, and people will notice, but not overnight.
