MereSurfer 2005 All-in-IE Edition

By Meresoft Free Editors' Rating

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
Our favorite aspect of the MereSurfer 2005 All-in-IE Edition plug-in is its much-needed support for tabbed browsing a la Firefox, Mozilla, and Opera (though it takes a good idea too far, providing no way to open a page in a new window instead of a tab). However, that's not all. MereSurfer offers solid and flexible tools for blocking pop-ups and ads, blacklisting sites, and cleaning up your browsing history. For instance, you can set the program to clean your browser's cache, cookies, and history for untrusted domains only. The pop-up blocker performed well in our tests, and the aforementioned stability problems have been resolved. Still, some users may find it annoying that the application pops up a nag screen every time you launch a new browser window. Nevertheless, habitual Internet Explorer users looking to extend the functionality of their browser might find this download useful.

Developer's Description

This patch for Internet Explorer adds a multiwindow tabbed navigator, a pop-up blocker, a tracks eraser, and a banner remover. You don't need more than one browser running on your system. The program kills image and Flash banners, fixes Web bugs, clears Internet tracks, and protects you from denial-of-service attacks. You can recover disk space by deleting all Internet trash with one click. One feature prevents trusted domains from MereSurfer, and you can import trusted domain names from your Favorites folder. This program plays a sound when blocking pop-ups and doesn't kill good pop-ups. The Pop-Up Blocker module uses artificial intelligence to block all known bad pop-ups.

Version 10.8 includes the modified Ad Blocker module.
