  4. Ability to add firefox addons.
  1. This browser is almost like Rebranded Firefox with pre-installed addons.
  2. Everything on the sidebar can get cramped. 
  3. Too much to read whenever I click a sidebar app. It takes a lot of time to scroll apps on the sidebar.
  4. The background wallpaper needs be of a higher resolution.
