Shiira browser has been stagnant since the end of 2007/beginning 2008, just noticed they have released 3 builds this month might be worth keeping an eye on developments.

I used to be undecided.....But now I'm not so sure.

I gave up any serious hope for Shiira when the re-written 2.0 version was missing tons of features and was way buggier than the last 1.x version... and then development and announcements ground to a complete halt.

Shame. It seemed to have some neat potential when it first came out and I really loved it for a while. I've long since dumped it and gone back to Safari/WebKit nightlies as my primary browser.

I'll give this new version a try for a few minutes, though.

Well, it still looks really promising, but it's also still buggy and full of rough edges.

Here's hoping the recent trend of development isn't a fluke and the devs shape it up!

I thought you meant She-Ra Princess of Power.

If anyone does see her, let me know - I've got a score to settle with her!
