Editors' Review

+

This software's claim--to be able to open 180 Web pages at once--might smack of a stunt for the Guinness Book of World Records, but the program does offer a useful alternative to traditional browsers. Built on the Internet Explorer engine, it offers now-standard tabbed browsing, and an easy-to-use Groups feature that opens several pages at once. It offers an option that reads pages aloud, and a feature that can automatically search using 500 different search engines. Its pop-up blocker functioned well in our tests, and it consumed considerably less system memory than Firefox, even when opening large numbers of pages. If you're looking for an alternative to the big names in the browser wars, Fast Browser may be worth a try.

"Doesn't Work on Windows Vista"

August 21, 2011  |  By RebelWIL

2011-08-21 13:18:12  |  By RebelWIL

 |  Version: Fast Browser Pro 8.1

Pros

Could not use the software because it does not work on Windows Vista. I did notice that Windows Vista is not listed in the System Requirements

Cons

freezes up the computer where you have to physically turn the computer off and reboot.

Summary

Don't waste your time if your using Windows Vista

"Good browser."

December 21, 2004  |  By oreo

 |  Version: Fast Browser Pro 7.0

Summary

It has a extensive cookie manager that surpasses what I seen in other browsers. You can view and filter out undesired cookies unlike Netcaptor which you can only view and delete current cookies. Basically has the features of popular freeware browsers such as Avant Browser, but has features such as a voice function that reads webpages for you, extensive search capabilities with web preview, links filter, drag & drop support, website scan, and a particular feature I liked was the ability to navigate Windows through it's own interface via the sideabar instead of using Explorer. Website scan is not as comprehensive as Netcaptor's WhoIs, and the history deletion seems to be no different than deleting your cache from IE compared to Netcaptor which has secure deletion of session data including index.dat. A feature that casted my interest the Cross Domain Data feature, which the latest security exploit in tabbed browsers have a problem with securing information when browsing different zones. Of course you can fix this by disabling scripts, but some sites require it. In Fast Browser Pro, seems you can eliminate this without turning off scripts altogether. As far as speed, I sense no real speed edge over other browsers on my dial-up and I have not experienced any crashes. Depending on your needs, this browser could be worth 30 dollars. As shareware IE shells go, I would compare this to Netcaptor, which is another browser I recommend.

"Needs better stability!"

November 16, 2004

2004-11-16 19:10:02

 |  Version: Fast Browser Pro 7.0

Summary

Nice browser that needs better stability as attested to by other reviewer David, apt to crash. Not worth $30.00 though, when there are other free IE shells that are better like Maxthon or NetCaptor.

Summary

Install went well.. Lots of Bells and Whistles.. Really looks Cool.. But.. you really need to go through every thing to get it set up right.. the only thing is.. i don't know if i got up to early.. But.. it looks like its just another IE Shell.. But thats just me... and it did crash a few times.. But..i will say.. i do like it.. I am not sure about how secure it is.. Give it a try.. and Enjoy...
