This novel application lets you tailor your view of pages to zero-in on specific content, but some features weren't stable during testing. IFocus' plain and simple interface is sparse, so you'll appreciate the demo movie given under its help button. The program launches a small window to enter and navigate to your favorite Web sites. You can resize the viewing window to focus only on the portion of the screen you'd like to see. The program saves your windows with that view for subsequent launching. IFocus can open several sites simultaneously and puts you in control of zooming in or out on pages. We like the auto-refresh feature to automatically refresh pages at predefined intervals. The program worked well, especially in monitoring sites that offer real-time scores, stock quotes, and news reports. However, in some instances, Web pages wobbled when we tried to focus on particular content. Overall, day traders, sports fans, or anyone who wants to keep posted on the latest will find this freeware useful.
