Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
Internet Explorer needs a face-lift--but UltraBrowser, built on the IE engine, doesn't add much to the familiar Microsoft package. It's small enough to fit on a disk, and we liked the streamlined interface, but the program uses a bit more system memory than IE, and we noticed no improvements in performance. This browser is slightly more attractive than IE and includes a few very basic skins, but you'll have to download them from the developer's site. UltraBrowser provides a panel for quickly accessing search engines, but it can't search several at once. Also, as with IE, UltraBrowser lacks tabbed browsing, so it has to open a separate window for each Web page; Firefox and Opera users who've grown accustomed to tabs will probably consider that a deal breaker on its own. The browser's major distinctive feature is its ability to store favorites online. Nothing about UltraBrowser will persuade a non-IE user to switch, but it might attract those looking for a compact, IE-compatible Web browser with a few extra features.

Developer's Description

UltraBrowser is a small browser application with a password-protected "MyWeb" remote bookmark manager for storing favorites on the Web, accessing them from other computers, and sharing them with others. The browser is integrated with a multisearch panel with access to popular engines enabling one-click querying, built-in Google autosearching from the URL bar and from the built-in search box, Web-page translation in more than 50 languages, and a media panel for TV, radio, music, and news from around the world. The application has a pop-up blocker, a convenient single-menu button for all the important functions and settings; plus, it provides easy access to popular sites and Web mails via drop-down menus.
