Anyone else beta testing the AT&T browser, Pogo ?

Its requirements are outrageous for a web browser..... but for what theyre trying to do with it, I guess theyre ok.
Im installing it tonight to see what the fuss is about....

That looks very cool!  And yes, 55mb is huge for a browser - I wonder what sort of memory it's going to chew up?

I look forward to seeing some posts on this over the next few days...

I was invited to test the beta. I installed it and then uninstalled it about 5 minutes later. They're trying to do this photo/coverflow thing with bookmarks and the currently opened pages - I was like "Yeah, whatever." Undecided Tabs suit me just fine. So, photo flow doesn't really excite me in a web-browser. 

 

Cool idea, I guess. Just a crap implementation at this point, since it's so slow - it is still beta software though. And, as one can see from my signature, my system is no slouch. Also, 55 MB for a browser is just way too large for my taste.
