    All I want to know is whether it will feel smooth and quick. All the security stuff should be in the background and not the main selling point, I don't choose a browser based on whatever catchy name it has for another resource hogging feature.

    As of build 10074, it is (IMO) the fastest, smoothest browser on the market, in a way I haven't seen since Opera was able to be installed on a 1.44 floppy, and at this point, it doesn't have the resource issues Firefox and Chrome have, although part of that is because it currently has no plug in capability.

    Sounds promising, I'm sure I'm not the only person who moved from IE years and years ago purely because of it feeling sluggish and being horrible to use. If they have finally upped their game it could spell the end for the browsers who don't have any major backing.

    IE 10 and 11 were not sluggish, but they were annoying compared to Chrome and Firefox due to the lack of certain features.
