Browse for Mac

CNET Editors' review

Those who are unhappy with the current native Web browser for Mac, Safari, may be looking for additional options. While basically functional as a Web browser, Browse for Mac is difficult to use, and those looking for free browsing alternatives should look elsewhere.

Available as freeware, Browse for Mac does not require any payment to unlock its full functioning. Download took an average amount of time, but it required two tries to obtain a file that would open properly. Once activated, the program opened quickly without any unnecessary steps or menus to navigate. There was no support available. Other free browsers available have active technical support for users, which is a clear advantage over this program. The interface was also fairly standard as compared to other Web browsers. A bar in the top of the window allows for URL entry and there are additional buttons for searching, navigating, and several other areas that appear to utilize widgets. None of the widget buttons were functional during testing, but appeared to be intended for weather data. Unfortunately, URL entry was more cumbersome and required the user to enter "http" and "www" information rather than simply typing the domain name as with other browsers. Features are extremely limited, and there are no options for bookmarks or favorites. The program simply opens and performs basic Web navigation.

With limited functionality and cumbersome Web navigation, those seeking an alternative to the major Web browsers should chose another option over Browse for Mac.
