Editors' Review

+

This browser makes an attempt at maximizing your screen space, efficiency, and speed, but malfunctions blow this one down.

First, Bluto XT (Light)'s interface really does give a wider view of Web pages, but at the expense of some necessary features. The ultrathin toolbar has old-style buttons to launch your home page, refresh, and visit Wikipedia. It also can split/merge the current and previous Web pages so you can view both at once. Things go downhill from there.

We were shocked that the browser lacks typical menu options like File, Edit, View and Favorites. Its efficiency wasn't so hot, either. Bookmarks were never saved, rendering the bookmark clearing button on the bottom status bar useless. Instead, the bookmark button launched the publisher's home page. The e-mail button opens Microsoft Outlook. Unfortunately, the URL bar has a glitch that wouldn't let us type on it in some instances.

As far as speed goes, Bluto XT (Light) didn't appear to be any faster than any other browser we've used. In sum, this free browser just isn't all that it's cracked up to be.

    "This is not the fastest browser."

    Version: Bluto XT (Light) 1

    Cons

    Internet Explorer is just as fast to open as Bluto XT (Light) is. And Bluto XT (Light) has an ugly and confusing interface. And is lacking File Edit View and Favorites and is not the fastest browser in the world.
