Michaelsoft Browser

Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

There isn't a single feature that makes Michaelsoft Browser stand out. It resembles a generic version of some past Internet Explorer. The layout is locked. You can't expand the program with add-ons, plug-ins, or themes. Surprisingly, it does have tab functionality, although you can't reorder the tabs.

Operating Michaelsoft Browser follows Firefox and IE conventions. There are the expected back, forward, home, print, and refresh buttons. The context menu merely duplicates IE's menu. In our tests, the program failed to correctly display many Web sites. Testers also complained the browser uses about twice as much memory as IE. Pages load about as fast as with IE, but often without displaying all graphics.

We couldn't find one function that equaled or surpassed Internet Explorer or Firefox. If you're a fan of one or the other, stick with what you've got. Michaelsoft Browser is utterly forgettable.
