Editors' Review

This generic-looking Web browser promises to improve user security, but installation and configuration failures render the program barely more than an old install of IE. WebWolf's plain toolbar and browser window interface won't take experienced users more than 5 minutes to learn. All the expected buttons and commands are present and perform as they do on IE. Installing the app uses a simple wizard, but many of the plug-ins failed to install initially. They could be added later, though.

What makes WebWolf different then? The application attempts to provide numerous security options. "Attempt" is the key, as the app failed to create user accounts on installation as expected. The browser's list of phishing sites often fails to redirect the user away from problem sites and, when working, sends users to a defunct site. The application's Password Bank often failed to allow access to the user's list of passwords. An administrator account is set to bypass most protection functions. The browser would often automatically switch to the account on certain program errors and other times ask for a nonexistent name and password to open the account.

Without the security options, WebWolf is merely a browser that has been surpassed by IE, Firefox, and Opera. The app is free, so it won't cost you anything but time to see if it works better for you than it did for our testers.
