Bare-bones browsing

Don't expect to find the standard options with this extremely basic browser.

If you're just tired of toolbar clutter and browsing options, this free browser is about as bare-bones as it gets. While novice users might like the pared down approach, Super Internet Browser probably won't sway more experienced users.

The browser name seems to imply something better than what you have (it's super!), but in reality offers users the most basic of user interfaces, with straightforward navigational buttons and a URL field. That's it. The navigational buttons themselves don't even offer picture representations of their functions. Instead, each command is spelled out. You won't find options to clear your browsing history, block pesky pop-ups, or bookmark your favorite Web sites. A Help feature isn't included either, so you're out of luck if you have any questions. Still, we were able to enter a URL, click the Go! button, and browse the Web without any issues.

If you're a no muss, no fuss kind of user, or just learning the ins and outs of the Web, this browser might suit. For us, trading features for simplicity just isn't a trade we're willing to make.
