Editors' Review

After testing this sleek, straightforward browser, we were ready to get rid of our current, more popular browser, and make The World Browser our default.

The user interface looks professionally designed, with self-explanatory command buttons at the top of the window. Below that are shortcuts to all of your bookmark categories. The interface can be customized to add or remove extra toolbars, but we liked the clean, uncluttered look of the default settings. Tiny navigational buttons make it easy to move through opened tabs. We especially liked the tab preview option for displaying all of your open tabs on one page. The browser's status bar has additional buttons that give you one-click access to your download manager, flash options, and tab positioning. The browser's Tools menu has the standard options, including those for cleaning traces and setting proxy options. The same is true of the familiar-looking View and Favorites menus. Our one complaint has to do with the Help feature, which has a link that takes you to the publisher's Web site, but it's currently under construction. When we found the Help file, it was not in English.

The World Browser does have a new version that is available for download, but other than the Help issue, we can't think of one thing that we'd change from the version we tested. You can try and use this app at no cost, and you just might find you prefer it over some of the more well-known browsers currently on the market.
