My Experience with Breach (A browser written in JS)

After cloning breach from its core i ran breach with ExoBrowser on my machine. Unfortunately it failed to run on my Mac 10.6.8. I went to their issues listing on github and found out it doesn't support 10.6.8. I guess its time i should upgrade my machine to a higher OS version.

You can try breach on your machine using the below link.
