MySpace Browser

CNET Editors' review

This browser aims to keep MySpace users a mouse click away from all of their MySpace needs, but stability issues overshadow its promising features.

MySpace Browser opens up with a browser window that comes equipped with standard navigational buttons, a search bar, and buttons that take you directly to MySpace to log in to your profile. Both the Flash Stopper and Unblocker buttons worked well during testing; however, the Link Preview option, which is supposed to let you hover your mouse over a link to preview it, froze our computer and rendered it unresponsive. A bar on the left of the browser window features a tabbed menu that lets you add friends and pictures, and offers tools for editing your profile. But again, our computer froze as we tried to click on each of the tabs.

It's a shame, because there are some great features for keeping you up-to-date with your MySpace profile and friends. This faulty browser has potential, but needs some work before we can recommend it.

    "Browser clicks open right from your desktop."

    August 1, 2009  |   By jackiiee

    Version: MySpace Browser 1

    Pros

    With high speed internet it's an instant access to MySpace.com. My son who's a teen likes it so that says something.

    Cons

    Sorry I don't know - I don't use the browser.

    Summary

    I downloaded this browser for my son so he can have quick access to blog all of his friends and cousins online. He says it's cool.

    "Use it all the time"

    April 18, 2007  |   By bigbugger

    Version: MySpace Browser 1

    Pros

    I love being able to load it up, click login, and start using myspace. Its nice to have all the myspace links in one place. The pics tab is nice - I can drag and drop pics from a web page to the tab, then drag and drop it back onto a comment.

    Cons

    Not a big fan of the ads, but the software is free so what can you say.

    "Few bugs, but really enjoy using it"

    April 2, 2007  |   By nitinbali

    Version: MySpace Browser 1

    Pros

    The quick login thing is great. The flash blocker button helps speed up the loading of people's myspace pages. Its nice to have all the shortcuts and other features - especially a shortcut to my profile.

    Cons

    Few bugs here and there or whatever you'd call it.

    "Not ready for practical use and too buggy"

    March 29, 2007  |   By Rockabilly Rebel

    Version: MySpace Browser 1

    Pros

    A feature that makes it cool is that once installed and you open up the browser it takes you straight to Myspace log on page.

    Once you log on it remembers your log on info and can be switched between different accounts on Myspace.

    Cons

    It was too slow for me and it froze up a lot and kept giving me a not responding message when I tried to get it to move to another page.

    With all the spyware and viruses you can get on Myspace from visiting other people's profiles, it does not seem to promote anything about safety or security this browser. In fact, in my opinion it is just a plain browser made just for Myspace and has it own advertised sites to fix up your profile on Myspace.

    Bottom line,.. I think it could have protential if they fix the slow loading and browser freeze up and also add some safety features. I think I will just keep my eye on this one.

    P.S. when I uninstalled it using its uninstall, It said "some parts of it could not be uninstalled, you can uninstall the rest manually"
