Editors' Review

+

If you occasionally grow tired of all the standardized bells and whistles and feature-cluttered toolbars of your everyday browser, this pared-down browser may offer a simplified change of pace. However, we encountered an issue each time we opened it.

Pocket Browser bills itself as the worlds simplest browser, and is designed for use with USB drives or other mobile media. As a simplified browser, it offers only a URL field and five buttons that cover the basics: forward, back, stop, and inexplicably two Home buttons. Both Home buttons take you to the Pocket Browsers home page. The black-and-red color scheme for the browsers skin is a bit amateurish looking, but that's the least of its problems.

During our tests, whenever we visited the Pocket Browser home page, both Internet Explorer and Firefox would spontaneously launch windows at advertising sites. This is an aggravating problem. The tool offers no menus for setting preferences, so you can't change the home page.

Otherwise, this free browser performed fine in our tests, responding quickly to our clicks. Anyone wanting a trimmed-down browser offering just the basics may want to check out Pocket Browser, but watch out for the sudden advertising blitz whenever you launch this tool.
