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.
Once you launch Pogo, it offers you to transfer bookmarks from other web browsers. Since it’s a beta only, Safari and Firefox weren’t located.
This is the part where I just had to click skip. Takes way too long.
Unlike other web browsers, Pogo keeps your tabs in the bottom (with small thumbnails). You can easily click on any blank one to open new page. All that simple.
Here’s a feature similar to Opera’s speed dial.
As this is Firefox based web browser, settings are not much different.
This is one of the features which I really enjoyed. Quick search bar.
Overall, Pogo was way too big and used too many resources. Maybe in the near future this won’t be an issue anymore. But hey, it’s a 3D web browser. What did you expect? Low resources usage?
