The World Browser
Full user review
"A good browser but not well know."
Good but not well known.
Not very well known.
This browser is fast a bit like Flock but it is not very well known. i went onto the browser website to download it because I did not want to download as a zip file. I chose normal download. The only thing I did not like was that some of the writing was in Japanese and the bookmarks displayed like folders and the appearence was quite ugly.That is why although it is fast it only gets a 3 star rating.Since I last reviewed this browser I am using it again and I find there are not any problems with this regarding browsing,watching videos,downloading etc. The World Browser looks rather like Flock when you look at it's desktop icon. But Flock is a geko engine browser Mozilla based but The world browser is based on the Internet Explorer engine. As most readers know i hate Internet explorer itselfe because it is slow and crashes and unreliable. But other browsers based on it's engine that runs Internet Explorer seem to be a lot better and different Internet explorer that is much hated by most people who use the computer. The world browser has it's own features and and customisations of the browser that are very different to IE and has pop up blockers that you can enable or disable. you cannot always do this in Internet Explorer. The world is quite fast and browsers the web quickly. I previously complained about it appearence but you CAN change the theme.

Updated on Sep 11, 2010The world browser is a good alternative to using Internet Explorer and usful for sites that look better in IE mode but it is good for all types of web tasks. The world has not been updated since last year 2009 but it works okay and it plays all types of videos even Facebook videos,which run on a different flash player. Although the world browser is made for Windows Xp,2000 and Vista it works well on Windows 7 which is what I have. Which is good new for anyone wanting this browser and also it works well so you would not know it does not have the Geko engine if you did not look at the info. on the browser website. So it seems this browser can be used on all types of Windows computer including Windows 7.
