Editors' Review

+

Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome are the three most popular browsers, and we have trouble finding a compelling reason to try other browsers when these three--particularly Chrome--do what they do so well. That doesn't stop people from developing alternatives, though, and thus we find ourselves with SunDance Web Browser. This browser's maker openly admits that it's based on Internet Explorer, but nothing about it seems to be an improvement over IE.

The interface is plain and typical for browsers, so we can at least say that it's intuitive. It's somewhat dated-looking, though, without the sleekness of its contemporaries. It offers all the typical browser features--tabbed browsing, a Favorites bar, the usual Internet Options menu, and so on--but also a few extras. There's a WYSIWYG editor, which can open Web pages and allow users to edit them, as well as a built-in RSS reader. We had trouble with this feature, though; it didn't seem to reliably add the RSS feeds that we selected. The browser also seems to lack a Help file, meaning that users are on their own if they have questions. Overall, SunDance worked well enough for browsing the Internet, but we can't image why anyone would be tempted to adopt this browser over one of the big three. It's unattractive and doesn't bring anything particularly useful or interesting to the table.

SunDance Web Browser installs and uninstalls without issues.

    "Browser with a modern interface and powerful features"

    December 26, 2013   |   By jonowak

    Version: SunDance Web Browser 2.0.0.2

    Pros

    The perfect browser with unusual modern inteface. The window has a horizontal bar on the upper part of the screen where you can open multiple tabs and access them by clicking a page's thumbnail.
    With integrated search assistant you will save a lot of time that you would spend tweaking searches manually inside the search engines.

    Cons

    Litle stability problem on windows xp

    Summary

    Best modern browser for complex web search

    "failed a the first hurdle"

    January 17, 2011   |   By jetsetterdavis

    Version: SunDance Web Browser 0.5.3.9

    Pros

    very quick to load

    Cons

    it crashed within a minute and I had to shut down to get rid of it.

    Summary

    Not only did it crash with an error, but it would not shut down and the only way to remove it was to shut the computer down. very very poor. it was an ole error if i remember right!
    i put one of my baby daughters sites on a book thing (story place) and it suddenly got stuck crashed and froze i could not even shut it down without closing my computer fortunately it did not affect anything else. The site works fine on every other browser.

    "Good, but not great"

    January 09, 2011   |   By jdunham3

    Version: SunDance Web Browser 0.5.3.6

    Pros

    From what little I used it, it seems stable, and the interface is clean and usable.

    Cons

    No help. Functions unique to this browser, like the double back button, have to be figured out by trial and error. Tabs don't have a "close" icon, so you have to right click and close from a menu.

    Summary

    It was interesting to try, but I couldn't find any compelling reason to keep it on my machine. I run FIrefox, Opera, and IE pretty much simultaneously, so don't need another browser unless it's stellar enough to replace one of the big three. This isn't.

    "bookmark problems"

    December 28, 2010   |   By tsemik

    Version: SunDance Web Browser 0.5.3.1

    Pros

    I liked how fast it came up. I liked that it automatically imported my bookmards from i.e.

    Cons

    You can't manage anything in favorites and the favorites that are there won't come up when you click on them.

    Summary

    You have a browser without a workable favorites area. Therefore, unless you never use favorites, this browser is useless. I will be uninstalling it now.
