Browsing in 3D
Basically ExitReality shows conventional two dimensional pages in three dimensional.
If you don't want to download and install you can enter a site URL on the ExitReality website and it will be shown in 3D.
I think the interesting bit is to see your normal website in 3D but I couldn't do much because it was very slow I didn't have the time to check many sites.
Over time I intend to visit more sites but I also think the application is good when you have a very fast connection.
Chrome enters the browser fray
The installation did not go as smoothly as I would have liked because thrice I got the error The installer encountered error 1. but on the fourth attempt I managed to install the browser.
Firefox is my default browser and so to import my bookmarks and other settings I had to close it down and from there I think I was a bit impressed but also remembering that this is only a beta version and so there are bound to be some quirks here and there.
There are not many settings which is good but in the settings you can enter your home page. Surprisingly I could not find a way to easily to go to that home page by form of a button or some other means and I think its something that needs to be done.
I tested the browser on all of my sites and I was happy to see that all the sites looked alright and it appeared to load fast as well.
I quite liked the location of the search box on the right hand corner and the fact that likes Firefox it incorporates a spell checker. It seems however to have just the default dictionary.
I think I will use Chrome mostly as a test browser and I will stick to Firefox for now because I cannot see how I can do without my favourite extensions.
