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.

    Version: WebWolf 5.1

    Pros

    Reply to user feedback.

    Cons

    In the newest version which has not been uploaded i have addressed many of the installer issues and updated WebWolf in terms of simplicity. If you would like to try the newest version please download it from: networkdefensesolutions.com/applications/software/windows/web/webwolf.zip

    All comments are welcomed as feed back from all users is needed to improve the overall progress, and simplicity of this software. Without users, and their feedback, software is just code. Thank you for writing Russellbear.

    Pros

    this is for administrators who really like to get in deep.

    Cons

    the avarage user will hate it. I deleted it from my system before even starting an account because of the obvious password requirements, which are not Obvious. the software needs alot more work to make it just a little user friendly

    "In terms of security, flawless..."

    July 17, 2007   |   By LamentVagrant

    Version: WebWolf 5.1

    Pros

    Security on this browser is efficient and the protective environment it produces allows web surfing a lot safer. Unlike the new Vista IE, it blocks unknown remote access from third-parties without having to sacrifice a window popping up reminding you if you should block or not.

    Cons

    Compared to Firefox, IE or other browsers, this one lacks eye candy and aesthetically, doesn't look good (reminds me of the old netscape)
