Hm, it says the Mac version isn't available yet.

Is this thing adware? What is the catch? It's a business, how are they supposed to make money off this?

Okay, found the answer. While it doesn't leave local tracks behind, it's spyware on the network side.

Browzar includes a search engine, and the startup will generate money through revenue-sharing deals with search engine providers. Initially, the relationship is with Yahoo’s Overture advertising sales subsidiary, but Ahmed plans to set up additional partnerships with other search companies over time to give users a choice of search engines.
