I didn't know about Dooble, until it was updated yesterday:

Nice find Curt and it looks very interesting.  And to think it was released in Jan 2010, it didn't start picking up steam until October.  downloads

Wow Curt! Great find indeed.

Type is a little small on some websites. (Like DoCo's forum.  ;D ) And the inital font setting is pretty awful until you change to something like Segoe. But after that, it's pretty sweet. Very fast and light feeling. And it handles YouTube and Vimeo hosted videos beautifully.

It even handles the South Park episodes:

I'm very much starting to like this browser. I miss my collection of plugins from FF, but for general purpose "recreational browsing" this looks like a winner.  :Thmbsup:

Addendum: One minor niggle. It doesn't seem to be able to handle PNG files. This is how this post looks in Dooble:

Cancel that. I just closed Dooble, reopened it and then reloaded the page and now sp.png is displaying correctly. Weird!  :tellme:
