Try clicking the Options button. That's what it's for. No obvious improvements over previous... Read full review

Virtually all the previous betas (and alphas) have been trouble-free on my system, but the last couple of builds have crashed when I carry out simple tasks such as closing a tab. Minus one star for that.

I've also found that it now makes itself... Read full review

The new build appears to have fixed a couple of problems I reported earlier with right-click options, but most are still greyed out or just don't work. Read full review

Several right-click options either don't work or are greyed out for no apparent reason, such as "open in new tab", "copy link address", and so on. It seems faster than the previous build of 10.20 that I was using earlier, and I quite like the new... Read full review

I, too used Winzip since Windows 3.1 until they reneged on Nico Mak's promise and started to charge for upgrades. WinRAR is better all round. Read full review

As good as ever. I don't need lots of bells and whistles, mainly speed and stability. It seems even faster in this build, but that may easily be an illusion, or I've got an unusually fast connection atm. During the entire version 10 test process... Read full review

Getting closer: RC now!

It certainly seems even faster than usual. I think Unite is only in the nightly builds at present. It looks like they're not ready to release it yet. :( Read full review
