Multifeatured file management

Organize files and edit images and HTML with this innovative program.

Turbo Browser is an intuitive photo-editing and file management tool. It combines two features we don't usually see together--a basic image editor along with a file browser and organizer--which sets it apart from other similar programs.

Turbo Browser's interface is basic and looks a lot like Windows Explorer. There are panes to display folders, the names of files within the folders, and previews of the files of themselves. We loved being able to preview not only images, but also Word documents, PDFs, and other files without opening their respective programs; this is a really valuable tool to have when trying to organize documents. The program also contains a basic HTML editor and FTP capabilities, allowing users to easily tweak and upload Web pages. The program's image editor isn't going to win any awards, but it does contain basic features such as cropping and rotation, as well as adjustments for color, brightness, blur, and so on. The program's Help file isn't terribly detailed, but it's adequate. Overall, the program isn't well suited for people who need to do anything intensively, be it photo editing or Web site creation. But it is a fantastic choice for users who find themselves needing a lightweight way to occasionally complete basic tasks. Our only serious disappointment was that the program does not seem to allow image conversion from one file type to another, which would have been helpful.

Turbo Browser has a 30-day trial period. It installs politely but leaves a folder behind upon removal. We recommend this program to all users.
