Dooble Web Browser offers an alternative to more-popular programs designed to help you surf the Internet. While it's certainly functional and a bit different, we were left wondering why anyone would choose it over the competition.

Dooble's interface is very sleek and simple and reminds us of Google's Chrome Web browser. Its commands are clearly labeled, which makes it intuitive to operate. The program is quite responsive, too. It does what most other browsers do. It supports tabbed browsing, for instance, as well as bookmarking sites and searching for specific topics via its search engine, which, like most of the competition, lets you specify searches for text, audio, video, or images. This wasn't an enormous help since the most popular search engines, such as Google, actually do a better job of it. Dooble again failed to impress with its security features, which the program's description touted as superior. However, all these do is automatically erase your cookies and browsing history after you close the program; yet another standard feature in most browsers. This program functions well enough, but it never outperformed the competition in any aspect.

Dooble Web Browser is a free program. It installs desktop icons without permission. While it works well as a Web browser, it doesn't surpass its competition in any way. We can't really see the need for it and therefore can't recommend it.
