MereSurfer 2005 All-in-IE Edition

CNET Editors' review

Our favorite aspect of the MereSurfer 2005 All-in-IE Edition plug-in is its much-needed support for tabbed browsing a la Firefox, Mozilla, and Opera (though it takes a good idea too far, providing no way to open a page in a new window instead of a tab). However, that's not all. MereSurfer offers solid and flexible tools for blocking pop-ups and ads, blacklisting sites, and cleaning up your browsing history. For instance, you can set the program to clean your browser's cache, cookies, and history for untrusted domains only. The pop-up blocker performed well in our tests, and the aforementioned stability problems have been resolved. Still, some users may find it annoying that the application pops up a nag screen every time you launch a new browser window. Nevertheless, habitual Internet Explorer users looking to extend the functionality of their browser might find this download useful.

    "Not FREE at all."

    November 9, 2005  |   By eldhorn

    Version: MereSurfer 2005 All-in-IE Edition 10.8

    Pros

    Good product for the job.

    Cons

    The company is not being up front that this download is actually a trial version and then you must pay for it. That is being under handed to people willing to download this program thinking that it's free when there is a cost of $30 at the end of the 14 day trial period. Click on the publisher link first and read before proceeding to download this one.

    "Good, but it can still be improved."

    November 5, 2005  |   By oreo

    Version: MereSurfer 2005 All-in-IE Edition 10.8

    Pros

    Adding tabbed browsing capabilities to Internet Explorer takes a unique approach. In addition to the tabbed browsing, it had a ad-blocker, pop-up blocker, and Internet tracks eraser. It has a trusted domain feature for pop-up blocker, tracks eraser, and ad-blocker. While other developers make a browser skin altogether. Meresoft took a different approach to improve the useability of Internet Explorer itself.

    Cons

    The program's tabbed browsing features could be improved. Specifically to open a new tab and to block pop-ups that open in new tabs by a right click menu. You can open a new tab by using IE's File menu and click on New, then Window. When you right click on the tabs on the tabs bar, the only option you have is Close. These little things keep this program from being top notch and truely easy to use. I am not sure as to the effectiveness or how thorough the tracks eraser such as to what secure standard of deletion it uses, or even whether the program securely erases index.dat files. I am using the free trial yet I saw I had 14 day left. I assume this means that advance features of the program such as ad-blocking turns off when the free trial expires. I really can't say. This program has potential though.

    "Great idea with the tabbed browsing"

    August 8, 2005  |   By sganiebny

    Version: MereSurfer 2005 All-in-IE Edition 10.8

    Pros

    Opens links in a new tabbed window and adds your trusted sites to a list.

    Cons

    Says it is free but comes up saying it`s a 14 day trial and prompts you to download the pro version. It doesn`t say if you can continue using it when the 14 days are up or if the pro version is free or not.

    "Great for tabbed browsing, shame about the nag screen"

    July 30, 2005  |   By abis123

    Version: MereSurfer 2005 All-in-IE Edition 10.8

    Pros

    Allows your Internet Explorer to have tabbed browsing, which is better than the current MSN Bar tab feature.

    Good one-click removal of Internet tracks and allows one-click 'add to trusted sites' so certain tracks wont be removed.

    Cons

    A nag screen, appears whenever you open Internet Explorer. It says you can get rid of it by registering, but the website doesn't work at the moment, so, your stuck with it. Apart from that, does exactly what it says on the tin, and it does it well.
