    I'm getting a message in the App Store that Terra has an update available for me, but I've never downloaded the app in the first place.

    Has this happened to anyone else?

    And can anyone vouch for Terra?

    It's a Web Browser it says.

    Thanks.

    Thanks, kat. It's really weird, but since it's in the App Store it has to be legit, right?

    I do not see an option to skip the update. It's like if I don't download the update the message will stay there forever.

    Terra is a very nice browser! It reminds me a lot of Google Chrome... lean, simple and fast.

    I love it so far. It has replaced Safari within 5 minutes of using it!

    I never thought I'd replace safari, but terra did so after just a few tries.

    I like Terra almost more than Atomic. And I even paid for Atomic! Terra just seems "cleaner".

    Stumbled across Terra a few days ago and haven't gone back to safari. It seems more stable at times and also TABS!

    As do I. For sites that i generally use more than just one tab for like this one, Terra comes in very handy.

    This is really strange.

    But hey, you have nothing to be afraid of.

    Thanks for positive feedback guys. Much appreciated.

    Why doesn't the tab title update until the page has finished loading? That's quite annoying.

    Also the spacing in the address bar seems a bit off (not enough spacing perhaps).

    Just seems a bit unpolished. Better than Atomic anyway, but some way off Safari yet.

    Faster than Atomic and iCab, but virtually no advanced settings. Mostly I've just found it to be extremely unstable - not necessarily outright crashes, but weird behavior on certain pages. It's also not as good as the other two at caching tabs, meaning it constantly reloads.

    With the new JavaScript enhancements, Safari is currently hard to beat.
