Interesting.

GHacks has also done a short review on it :

The browser has teamed up with Kaspersky to scan the downloads with its antivirus engine... it's like what Epic Browser did with ESET.

And they are using the Opera Turbo technology from Opera.

Personally, I am quite wary of such browsers, because their main purpose seems to be to promote their own services and products through their browsers. Have seen the same with Comodo browser, CometBird, BlackHawk browser from Netgate, etc. I have tried the above browsers, and decided to stay away from them.

Also, apart from a few new features, they just remain clones of a browser.
