    looks great project. surprising if the developer would port this wear internet browser for Apple Watch. This shouldn’t be tough …. as the Chrome and Mobile Safari are using almost the same code base (webkit).

    High hopes for the future and Apple Watch device!

    Totally Crap… used to be free but now there’s an ugly “Free Version” message over the app which prevents use. This project was created using code from the free open source chromium browser. In any case I am dissapointed in the owner if they were planning to monetize this application they should at least have given existing users free access. I won’t be purchasing this application but if another paid browser comes along I’ll be giving them my money instead.
