Step 3 : engines or nothing ...

The great feature of Lunascape is its ability to switch from one rendering engine to another. At the bottom of the window on the left you will see a small icon that indicates the engine used. Simply click to switch to another engine.

The most amazing thing is that every open tab may use a different rendering engine. Obviously, this can lead to memory very important as it rises when several engines simultaneously. But it is also useful to compare the display of the same site as the three main systems rendering the market.

Note also that the manner of IE8, you can tell what Lunascape renderer adopt automatically according to the site responsible for:
  • In the View menu, go to Rendering Engine then in Auto Engine Switcher.

  • Enter a URL by adding a "*" prefix and suffix (eg *. techarena.in *)

  • Then select the engine to be used and press OK.

  • Each time you go on the site, Lunascape will automatically use the designated driver.

Step 4: A gesture navigation

Lunascape uses shortcuts gestures.They are to conduct operations or perform a function of a menu, simply by drawing a movement with the mouse. To do so simply to maintain the right mouse button down and make the gesture.

By default, gestures are recognized:
  • RMB + fast left: return to the previous page
  • RMB + fast to the right: go to the next page
  • RMB + fast down: close the active tab
  • RMB + moving down and then left: iconified browser

But you can easily enrich gestures recognized from the Tools menu, then Settings and then in Lunascape in Action and Mouse Mouse Gesture.

Lunascape browser security

Step 5: Security

Most infections and threats Web use scripts and applets. A good way not to become infected when taking some risks to explore the Web pages unknown is to disable support for scripts and Java.

Normally this should be done through the Tools menu, option Security. But a bug in the alpha version makes it impracticable menu. Better to opt for another ergonomic solution:
Go to Tools, then on Change in Style and Status Bar and select Default.

At the bottom of the window locate the icons and S J. When color is that the scripts and Java are enabled. Simply click on it to disable them.
