Just released 5.1.3

Hi guys,

I wasn't kidding when I said that dev team in Japan never sleeps. Today, we released version 5.1.3.

This includes the latest Gecko engine (same as Firefox 3.5.1), which overcomes vulnerability issues. And yes, this also supports HTML 5 including native support for Ogg Theora encoded video and Vorbis encoded audio.In addition, we have fixed some bugs related to Windows Vista/XP and crash issues specific to Gecko.

Check it out and let us know your thought as always.

Updated version 5.1.2 is out

Thanks for those of you who downloaded our official release 5.1 a little less than 2 weeks ago. I hope you are liking it.

Well, we don't stop there. Today, we released a bit of update. We have fixed issues regarding occasional crashes and freezes that you have kindly taken time to let us know. And we have improved speed in page load. You will feel it is much snappier with this new version.
(I think the dev team in Japan never really sleep...!)

For those with 5.1, you will receive update notice shortly, so make sure to click on it. For the folks who have not tried Lunascape yet, you really have no excuse ;-) Try it yourself.

As usual, please let us know what you think (good or bad) via comment here or at our support forum at http://en.bbs.luna.tv.

Lunascape 5.1 Official Release! Improved Launch Speed and Sidebar Usability

Lunascape, the world’s only triple rendering engine browser with unmatched speed and usability, has made its leap again. Lunascape 5.1 Official Release has just arrived!

Our three in one (“Trident” in IE, “Gecko” in Firefox, and “WebKit” in Chrome & Safari) browser has been known not only for its broadest website coverage compatibility, but also for the top class JavaScript processing speed and usability. Since the prior Beta version, Lunascape has focused on getting the basics right: speed, stability and usability.

Below are key improvements made on Lunascape version 5.1 Official Release:

The Latest Rendering Engines
In this version, Lunascape is equipped with the latest versions and revisions of the rendering engines, namely Gecko 1.9.1, the same as just released Firefox 3.5, and Webkit r45367. But remember, Lunascape’s technology optimizes three engines and achieves even faster JavaScript speed than the original guys. Yes we did it again against latest Firefox 3.5!

*Please refer to our website for testing environments

Faster Launch and Shutdown through Refactoring
We know browser start-up speed is something we can’t look over when it comes to faster browsing experience. Lunascape has improved 25% since the Beta version through refactoring process. This also enables faster shutdown speed.

Floating Sidebar
Detachable floating sidebar is one of the examples of Lunascape’s heightened usability that competitors do not offer. In this version, we have listened to user’s feedbacks and made it more easy and intuitive. Check out how we tweaked it as you use favorite buttons and auto hide modes

Netbook Mode
Lunascape has prepared Netbook mode that utilizes limited display areas. By hiding the upper section of the browser toolbar, the display area of a site is widened. Switching between the modes is easy with a function key or mouse-over.

Snappier Features
Lunascape is a feature-rich browser. It comes natively with many useful features such as Mouse Gesture so that you don’t have to deal with the obsolete plug-in mess when in newer version of the browser. Since the Beta version, we have fixed a lot of bugs, and it’s now snappier than ever.

New Forum!
Hope you’ll enjoy this new version. If you run into any issues, we're very interested in feedback, so we can fix them quickly. Any other question, comments are also welcom! To place your comments, please visit our new forum at http://en.bbs.luna.tv/
