    Two things off the top: 1. Closing the last tab should open up the default tab. 2. Screenshot or at least a favicon for the bookmarks. Otherwise I like it :)

    I like this browser because it's light. Please keep it so and do not come with useless features that will slow it down.

    It's a light weight app taking less memory and displaying a better performance when compared to other browsers out there
