Some time ago I’ve received an invitation to try Pogo Web Browser so downloaded Pogo 1.1 Beta and started to play with it.
First thing I noticed during the download process was its size. Pogo is a heavy browser and its installation uses more than 50 megabytes (54.5 MB) of disk space.
It took some time to install it but installation went smooth and without any errors. Continue Reading
