"You know, launching something like this - you try to act calm, but you are actually really nervous and just hope people will like it. The team and I are very grateful for the hundreds of five-star ratings the many Coast users have given so far." 

 

Here are some statements made about the browser so far:

"Coast is different from a lot of reinvented browsers in that it’s not different merely for the sake of being different; it’s a thoughtful retooling of browsing that feels even more iPad-like than Safari does." - Time

"By far the most impressive feature is the fluid response of the browser. Pages load almost instantly and the process of moving between sites offers the perception of flipping through a magazine." - Cnet.com

"The new browser is called Coast and it’s a dream." - BoyGeniusReport
