Editors' Review

+

An IE replica in most respects, Free Browser suffers from some inexcusable misses. As expected, you'll find standard navigational buttons, robust search capabilities, and pop-up protection.

The search bar appears below the address bar for quick look-ups. Searches can be accomplished using AltaVista, Ask.com, Google, Yahoo, and a few others. You'll get to choose how pop-ups are handled and whether to show the number in the browser or to log them. Although the entire scheme isn't skinnable, you can change the background and font of the address and search bars.

Password protection to guard your favorites, history, options, and e-mail is offered, although the check boxes to select to do so are off-limits. We also found it odd that our favorites list from IE didn't merge in. Even worse, Free Browser's IE Favorites Converter on the toolbar menu didn't work at all. Web surfing wasn't bad, but it wasn't any faster than any other browser out there.

Although you can surf as usual with it, there isn't anything special here for you to give up your current browser.
