My two biggest complaints is that pages often fail to fully load, having to use another browser & there's no backup, like Chrome has. Once browser is uninstalled or if data is cleared, all saved info is gone. Night Mode is my favorite feature, as I most always keep on. It has issues on Google, often switching to white background. Other than that, it's a solid browser and a very good alternative to Chrome.

Pretty solid, but needs an update badly. About a week ago I started getting pages freezing constantly, and pages breaking and turning fully black when locking and unlocking the screen. Sometimes I'll click a link and instead of loading the page, it'll just lock my scrolling and not load anything. These all require the tab to be closed, with no ability to save my place.

Only usable for basic web browsing anymore. The biggest issue now is that forms don't display and sumbit correctly. This makes it random and mostly impossible to buy things online. Many drop-down and button options don't work properly and I did not know this until I went back to chrome and saw all the properly functioning options companies had on their purchase forms. Extensions also broken until browser closed and reopened, tab organizer has lots of blank space and auto scrolls to top...mess.

Oh yes, I agree 100%. I found the cause today on the Grid (it was difficult to track down, but we got help from few users to find how to reproduce it). There was an annoying empty space that used to grow and grow. I will push a fix tomorrow in version 116.0.5845.50 (waiting for validation from Google), then it should be much better again. Arnaud.
