Editors' Review


You have to offer something special to pull users away from Firefox and Internet Explorer. While Security Browser covers the basics, it doesn't have any standout features that will give users an excuse to leave the tried and true.

The interface is simple but professional and holds the standard navigation buttons along with links to topics such as music and news. It was slower to start than IE or Firefox, but there was no difference when surfing. Toolbar icons take you to sites such as CNN News and Yahoo Games, and to a few Windows-based applications such as the media player. It features tabbed browsing, along with its promised security features for automatic log-in and password management. You can't customize the toolbar by removing or adding other Web links or shortcuts to your favorite applications. It doesn't support plug-ins either, so you're stuck with what Security Browser gives you. Not surprisingly, there's no way to import your list of favorites. Everything worked well, with the exception of the menu bar Properties option, which did nothing for us when we clicked it.

Users accustomed to the flexibility of Firefox and IE won't be happy with Security Browser's lack of customization options. Those completely new to surfing might like this freeware browser's simplicity.

What I really like is the free form filler and password wizard. Its like getting RoboForm for free. The popup blocker works good too.

Security Browser is a tabbed browser with a popup blocker, form filling wizard and password wizard, plus you can set it to open up to 5 home pages. Overall I like it as much as Opera.


The file size is too large though.

"Not that great"

I don't have a clue why Microsoft is messing around with this release instead of pooling it's resourses into getting the bugs out of IE 7 Beta 2. Security Browser is way to huge, 27MB compared to Opera's 3.6. Security Browser is not even up to Avant's standards as far as IE shells go, and not even close to Opera or Firefox.
