Editors' review

Surfers have boards for every kind of surf. Web surfers have never enjoyed so many choices, either. With open-source browser kernels, evolving Web standards, a universe of add-ons, and content that consumes ever more system resources and bandwidth, the field is wide open for "other" browsers that combine speed, security, and versatility. Lataza Browser Professional from KGL Softouch builds on the latest Internet Explorer kernel. As with other top-rated browsers, it's fast, free, customizable, and comes with a variety of security and convenience features. To get the most out of Lataza Browser, you should also have IE 8 or higher.

Lataza Browser sets up in the usual way, including the ability to import favorites from IE, Firefox, and Opera. The browser has an attractive interface and several toolbar options, including a useful Status Bar at the bottom edge containing everything from memory usage and downloads to a calculator. We could also add Page, Find, and Side Bars. The translated documentation at the browser's Web site was a bit difficult to follow, but it appears the developers have tweaked the IE kernel's resource management process to release memory resources more quickly when Web pages are closed. In any case, Lataza Browser proved as fast and steady as any of the latest browsers.

Lataza Browser checked for updates automatically and our update required a reboot; hardly an issue, but unusual for a browser. As Web browsers get more and more alike, it's harder to stand out from the crowd. However, the latest "alternative" browsers have nearly all the features and convenience of the big players with few of the disadvantages that limited their appeal. We recommend adding Lataza Browser to your must-try list.

    "This looks like 'The World Browser' from China."

    January 27, 2014   |   By GeoffreyJBrittan

    Version: Lataza Browser Pro

    Pros

    It may be a wonderful browser, but one has to be cautious about software from China. I have used Maxthon, from time to time, and I have loaded and used The World Browser. I noticed that bookmarks in Maxthon were updated and available in World Browser. The browsers are light on resources, fast, and easy to use.

    Cons

    Norton Internet Security blocked installation. I could have over-ruled that advice, but I decided to accept it.

    "Fast but buggy."

    August 08, 2011   |   By Eddoom

    Version: Lataza Browser Pro

    Pros

    Nice interface, better than Chrome and the standard Firefox but lacks Firefox's customization options. Full of features and light on the system.

    Cons

    Full of bugs, keeps on crashing every hour or so. I use FF as my browser of choice and that hasn't crashed in at least 2 years so to have a crash every hour is a worry. Tried it for a afternoon, drove me mad so removed it.

    Pros

    Full featured, compact. Everything is convenient to find and use. It has auto fill, tabs, a selective download and more,

    Cons

    A bit unstable with Windows7. Every hour or two it shuts down. However people I know haven't had any problems on Vista.

    Summary
