Tried it twice. First time none of the favorites worked when clicking on them. Tried everything to get that to work. Un-installed, re-downloaded Ocra. This time everything worked alright. Must have been a corrupted first download. Using it now and it seems to work alright. Will keep it for a while and see how things work.

Well browser connoisseurs,

The default pop-up stopper in Orca can be defeated, so we need something additional, where to get it?
The history function is excellent, the representation of all the recent history in the browser Window is a revelation to me,
yes folks there are some strong sides to this browser. But it does not feel like a FF-style browser, no way, it leans more to the windows type browsers with msn search page as default, avant search engine is standard (they must count their clicks,  ;D).
I miss the add search engines function in FF and Flock, con query.
If you want to port your searchengines files from FF to Flock, or from FF to the later version, you can just drop this inside the new program files, no problem, no sweat. Here you have to go back to this favorite: http://www.fravia.com/main.htm, and then I can search from and what I want.
Kartoo etc. is running better from inside Orca, the graphics rendering  from Orca is a class apart. Flock is lean, fast and user friendly, but Orca has more for the eye. Have to feel its dents security wise, have not done so, but we will later give you another resumé of my findings. Well it is like good old ReVaN says, this gonna be not the year of the dog, but the year of the browser ;). Well let us see?

That's one of the reasons i like it so much ;)








Remember Polonus this is still in beta so expect to see some features added to this one.
