There are times when simplicity is good, and there are times when it's bad. In the world of browser technology, we'd prefer something in the middle. Dragonfly, an extremely small download that offers lightening-fast Internet browsing, is too simplistic to draw surfers away from their better stocked Net browsers. The program is based on the Microsoft Internet Explorer browser, and is in essence a stripped version of this application. This slim freeware offers very little in the way of features: there are basic navigation controls (Forward, Back, Stop, Home) and an option to bookmark favorites. An added field to search Google is a decent touch. Dragonfly also comes with a pop-up blocker, yet it didn t work very well during our tests. Overall, Dragonfly can surf the Net quickly given its svelte size, but don't expect somersaults from this souped-down browser.

Dragonfly is a very small and compact browser. It uses very little disk space, but is capable of visiting any Web site on the Internet. Since it uses the same ID as Internet Explorer, it can use any script that only Microsoft Internet Explorer can use. Best of all, it's totally free. With constant updates, there's always something new.
