Naver's Whale browser (Mac version beta) released


Good news for Mac users in Korea. Naver's Whale browser, a sturdy Chromium-based internet browser steeped in the Naver ecosystem and already out for Windows PCs, is now available as a beta download for macOS versions OS X 10.9 and above.

Here are some promo screenshots:

If you're unfamiliar with Whale, see my previous post where I go in depth and offer more screenshots than you can handle.

I haven't used a Mac in at least 10 years, so I won't be able to try it out and post the results here, but you can download it yourself, either at the official download page, or cheekily via this direct link to the .dmg file:




Note that the Mac version is still a beta and there may be bugs.

    1. That's right, only the Korean version for now. An English version was supposed to be coming soon, but there has been no news.
