    "Interesting concept, but limited in sites to visit"

    March 07, 2006   |   By ImaSloeTyper

    Version: 3B Browser 2.1.1

    Pros

    Sure enough, it does it's thing in a pseudo "3-d" environment that you "walk" through to get around. In theory, this concept could lead to something along the lines of William Gibson's "Neuromancer" world, were cyber-cowbows zoom around a graphical representation of the net.

    Cons

    BUT! Only if the current incarnation of cyber-cowboys are mainly interested in shopping, especially women's clothing and accessories. (sigh)

    Ok, before I say more, let me make clear that I have only taken about a 10 minute look at this program, so there may well be LOTS more that I missed. But basically the program opens with you a "cyber-airport" terminal. At which point you then "walk" around the terminal to go to various sites. However, the vast majority of the available sites are stores of one sort or another. And the majority of those stores are "women's" stores.

    I think I understand why the creators used the analogy of an airport (I'm guessing that somehow - maybe in the future, or in a way I didn't yet discover), you are supposed to be able to travel to different "cities", each with it's own virtual airport.

    However the airport I saw would better be defined as a shopping mall, with the user asigned the role of window shopper. And if you find a site you want, clicking on it will transport you into that site (in either 3d, or normal browser mode)

    One note also, from what I can tell, you can also use 3B Browser in "flat" or normal non-3d mode to browse the rest of the internet that don't support it's 3d format.

    One last very trivial note, my computer is an old dinosaur, about 8 years old, with a SLOW processor (400mhz PII), and ancient graphics card (first generation AGP). So for the few people left who also still use the same sort of dinosaur, you will find that 3B Browser is very slow, and the graphics are not stunning. However, MOST people will probably not have any problems.

    Anyway, bottom line, great concept, fairly good execution (would be better if my own machine was faster and more up-to-date), but (at least for now) the 3d environment, seems to be too limited to commercial sites. Hopefully this sort of concept could catch on with other non-store sites, in which case it could grow to be really cool.
