Yes it is now history on my system to darn slow even given the benefit of the doubt on the crashes.

What has displeased me more is that it doesn't clean up after itself when you uninstall it, I checked the about:config for browser.bdtoolbar and there are still 12 entries for it.

and if it is installed for ie, you can see a background process running even after you close ie.

So still much work to be done on this beta tool. I didn't install it on IE so I can't comment on how it worked on that.

Try it you might like it.

I don't know how it performs with dial-up though

I love my 6MB DSL connection.

I somehow doubt the slow browsing speed with this tool would be any different (cra* on dial-up as I have already mentioned), that and the fact of the remnants left behind when uninstalled and the other reported issue with it an IE, no thanks.

Not to mention I really don't like IE and if I could completely get rid of it I would, it is only there because of its OS integration. On till IE is completely isolated from the OS like other browsers, doesn't have activeX or BHOs, isn't integrated to the OS, it will never be my default browser, but there under sufferance.
