Ok, so the news might be a week old but in reading ZDNet today I just got wind that Tablane is no longer in beta and they’ve got a fully. Emmet Connolly reviewed the Irish browser which is based on IE back in November for Web 2.0 Ireland and a few people I know have tested it, so testing some content for the CMS today I was disappointed to find that the browser just wouldn’t cooperate. Opening up my DeviantART homepage right away I was confronted with browser errors, I just don’t like seeing errors, one of the joys of using Firefox so far… 🙂 Of course that’s small money in comparison to what it’s being touted to do.
I’m not slating the browser right away at all, just thought the error was weird and I’ll give it a good bash on home turf (out of the office) now that its out of beta release. I just hope that for this to succeed that it doesn’t have to rely forever on Internet Explorer. I am interested in the concept of tailoring the browser for user specific audiences, such as an eBay browser or an Amazon browser. Some nice features touted to me on first look but I’ll let you know what I think when it gets going.
