Not overly impressed

The first thing that hit me, was that you must type "http://" when you enter an address. Otherwise it will just do a Google search. That alone makes it almost useless, in my opinion.

During my fairly short test, the only neat feature that I found was the resolution settings. The browser is rather basic, and doesn't have anywhere near the feature set of the likes of Opera or Firefox, or even Safari. Maybe it will get better later on, though.

For development, go with Opera (see http://dev.opera.com/tools/) or Firefox instead.

+1 on that! It took me a few minutes to figure just what the hell was going on. Of course, I have been drinking too.
