The viewing area is larger, but the trade-off is a minimal feature set for this freeware browser. LexBrowse's interface is only eight buttons and an address box. That's good news for those looking for an easy-to-learn browser. It's bad news for those users who will quickly realize they will miss favorite features. Don't look for a Help file or instructions. They aren't offered or needed.
The small interface does allow for a larger display window, but the difference isn't huge. The address bar forces you to use the Go button to open sites, but the back, Forward, Stop, and Refresh buttons work like the more common browsers. This application also includes buttons to open three popular reference sites. Since it uses the Internet Explorer engine, you still have access to some context-click functions. Which features are included depends on your installation of Internet Explorer.
This program didn't fare well in memory tests. Without common features, it still used more memory than Firefox. The small interface and stingy function set may appeal to some novice users, but most users will find that LexBrowse offers too little for daily use.
A lightweight browser designed to give space. The thing best about it is that it has a small browsing bar at the top to give more browsing room. It will eventually have Favorites and History. The next version will have an updated interface.
