I've been gathering all the information I can on it. I expect I will download it to my older XP, which does'nt have a whole lot on it.

Keep me/us posted on how it is working on your machine.

I remember using this browser before, but it seemed like too much bloat for me iirc.

I've been very surprised at it's file size, I couldn't understand which compression they have used to include Gecko & Webkit in 9MB.
But when I've downloaded and started the installation, It have started to download 2 engines....
Anyway, A more or less fine web browser, Can use engines on a per tab basis, Which is very useful in the websites development.
But it doesn't seem to have some features such as IE toolbars support, Online storage, Autofill etc.

Exactly! Windows computers already have Trident, and Lunascape just downloads and installs Gecko and WebKit during the installation process. I wonder why they don't just include that with the original download file?

Of course the download file will be bigger; perhaps increase to 25MB? It's already 9MB in size. Anyone that will download a 9MB installation is probably using high-speed Internet anyway and downloading 25MB won't take that much longer.

Lunascape seems to use its own bookmarks format. It does provide the option to use IE Favorites and also import bookmarks from Firefox and Opera.

I'm pretty sure Lunascape won't keep/use your existing cookies (from where? Avant? Orca?) and it certainly would not be a good idea to do so. A browser's cookies belong to that browser application, no matter if it's Avant cookies or Orca cookies or whichever other browser. I'm certain Orca does not use/load Avant cookies during install, nor vice versa, and I don't expect Lunascape will use any other browsers' existing cookies. When you browse the web with Lunascape, it will save its own cookies.

In theory, Lunascape will use IE cookies just if you'll use the Trident engine.
But there's a little difference on Vista - IE on Vista use different cookies for "Standard user" (UAC) mode and "Admin user mode".
Also, If I'm not mistaken then there's a difference in IE8 - Compatibility view cookies are different from the standard view cookies. Since Lunascape is apparently using compatibility view in Trident by default for all websites, Some IE8 cookies for websites that are not viewed in compatibility view in IE8 won't be "shared" with Lunascape. But I might be wrong.

Hello guys i think lunascape needs some more work.Like a new version update like we do with avant.I also saw cpu load was a little heavy. So i uninstalled from my puter.I guess it is a personal choice i don't think it is ready.If a new version comes out i will try it again. :)
