Editors' Review

An unappealing interface, lack of a Help file, and consistent errors mar this freeware Web browser. Just after install, Web Services Accelerator had a glitch that caused the system tray icon to appear, but prevented the interface from opening. As Web Services Accelerator was launched, the first item that appeared was an error message. An icon appeared in the system tray, but it took testers several tries to actually get the interface to appear.

The program's poorly designed and cluttered interface holds the typical File menu, browser toolbar, pull-down menus for built-in sites, and stacked links for even more sites. There are tips, but a Help file is definitely needed to understand the cryptically labeled buttons "F," "R," "W," and five other one- or two-letter options.

You can remove some of the clutter by removing all toolbars, but then you might as well use your existing browser. This program's claim to fame is a Show All button to display all open windows in one window. Without tabs, the Show All option is the only method to see all you have open. We weren't that impressed with Show All. The feature doesn't improve on tabs, and just stacks open windows with three across and however many rows are needed. You can also set up to eight sites that will open at launch. That isn't a revolutionary feature and is better implemented as tabs in both IE and Firefox.

Services Accelerator is free, but there's a fairly steep learning curve involved, especially for novice users. Based on our tests, we don't believe the investment in time is worth the end result. Simply, there was nothing about this program that would woo us away from our current browser.
