No reason to buy

Surf the Web with this simplistic browser, but it offers little reason to pay to switch from other free browsers like Firefox.

32bit Web Browser is advertised as a fast browser alternative that does not take up much hard drive space. It didn't deliver on all its claims, however, and we found its plain design did not flow as well as more popular browsers like Internet Explorer or Firefox.

This program's very plain interface may disappoint users accustomed to the bright buttons and intuitive commands of other browser programs. 32Bit Web Browser offers plain black-and-white command buttons to skip backward, stop, refresh, go home, and look at bookmarks. Above these are smaller drop-downs for file, search, options, and, oddly, bookmarks again.

32bit Web Browser performed exactly well, for the most part; it was a quick and easy way to surf the Internet. However, the manufacturer also claims 32bit Web Browser is a fun and profitable way to browse, but the basic program didn't really add any element of fun and we found no obvious ways to profit from using this browser. We also found that, despite its plain design, this browser doesn't flow as intuitively as more popular downloads, so users new to browsing programs might be a little confused at first.

We weren't overly impressed with this browser, especially when other free programs offer a better design.
