Lunascape5 Genesis Beta Release

The Beta of our global English version browser, Lunascape5 Genesis, was released on February 10th. You can download it at http://www.lunascape.tv. Since the initial launch in late November, we’ve been hard at work improving our state of the art triple-engine technology and taking in useful user feedback along the way on features and functions that are important to them.

What we’ve been hearing time and time again is that people want their browser to enable a rich, interactive experience on the web. As users are increasingly becoming more active on Web 2.0 sites and applications, networking and collaborating with other users in real time, they need their browser to be highly responsive to their actions and commands.

In other words, speed is more essential than ever. In a Web 2.0 world, what’s the best measure for speed? The graph below shows our latest SunSpider JavaScript Benchmark test. You’ll notice we’re still at the front of the race. Lunascape5 has also scored a perfect 100/100 on the Acid3 test, which measures a browser’s compatibility with web standards (such as JavaScript). But why is fast JavaScript execution important? What does that mean to you as a user?

JavaScript is a scripting language used in the development of many websites and web-based applications. As a dynamic language, JavaScript code is highly responsive to user actions in the web interface and is employed at the core of many powerful and dynamic web applications. Do you use Gmail or Google Docs? What about social networking sites like Facebook or video sharing platforms like YouTube? Whenever you type, make updates and changes, interact with others, or even watch video, JavaScript is fundamental to your experience. And when a browser executes JavaScript quickly, that means as a user, you can be more efficient and interact with the social web in a more natural, fluid manner.

Of course, while speed is important, that’s not the only thing we look for in a browser. You can download Lunascape5 Beta at http://www.lunascape.tv and discover all the other cool features we’ve got in store, including three engines ready to power your journey to any destination on the web. Stay tuned for more surprises that are just around the corner.
