    Closed source, china based, uses IE’s engine (Trident) and WebKit, Windows only, focus on looks… Nah, don’t think so…

    Good to see this, though.

    it weird since this browser was just IE shell (using IE, trident engine), so it must be clear that it will inherit all IE core (rendering & js engine), but looks like it has outpaced IE with added GPU text rendering (wonder how they modified the trident rendering engine)
