DEVONagent as default browser?

I would like to use DEVONagent Pro as my default , and indeed only, web browser, two questions:

  1. What are the disadvantages in de-installing Safari & any other browser?
  2. If I do de-install Safari is it possible first to import my Safari bookmarks into DEVOnAgent’s bookmark management system?

Thanks for any help.

Why deinstall Safari? If you don’t want to use it, don’t use it. It’s a tiny app, and if you clear your history and caches very little space is needed.


Right, although frameworks under /System/Library/StagedFrameworks/Safari and other locations do use more space than just the Safari application.

I wouldn’t want to rely solely on DEVONagent, or any other single browser for that matter. While it’s increasingly rarer I still encounter cases where a different one can handle something that another won’t. Plus I don’t have the Flash Player plugin installed, instead occasionally switching to Chrome when Flash usage is required.

Right, I have just come across such a case—iCloud—bad idea then :blush: I do like DEVONagent though as it seems to be quicker than Safari and Firefox and also the search facility is far superior, but, (there is always a “but”) it has another little niggle, there does not seem to be, as far as I can tell, a Bookmarks Bar.

Over here, that’s another 29 MB physical - I’d call that tiny-ish. :wink:

DA seems very … '90s and utilitarian. My favorite was always OmniWeb for its funky interface and great speed – maybe someday Omni will look kindly again on its oldest Nextstep creation and take to developing it again.
