Editors' Review

While this freeware Web browser covers the basics, it doesn't come close to beating out its more popular competition, Firefox and Internet Explorer. The awkwardly named MicroSE Unite.MSE also had some real troubles with its lone plug-in, which is optional to add during the program's installation and should just be avoided.

The Web browser's rudimentary interface has the bare minimum of navigational buttons, six in all, to move backward, forward, refresh, stop, navigate home, and close a tab. There's an address field, a Google search tool and an abbreviated File menu. There's no Help file, and despite having fewer options, MicroSE Unite.MSE could use some explanation for the settings and the plug-in that comes with the program. The Settings menu has two options, one for the pop-up blocker and one for all other settings. The tabbed window that appears for the latter is straightforward, but not so clear are the options in the System tab, which includes only check boxes with short labels. While Pop-Up Blocker is easy to understand, we couldn't figure out what the Web site program was supposed to do. Another issue was the MSE Web Links plug-in, which is an optional add-on during program installation. It didn't seem to impact browsing whether it was enable or disabled. There was an option to manually run the plug-in, but this caused an unhandled exception every time we tested it.

Like more popular browsers, MicroSE Unite.MSE is freeware and you can surf the Web with it. That's where the similarities end. It lacks the polish and features found in its competition. If you already have a way to browse the Web, this one won't woo you away.
