e-Capsule Private Browser HD

Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

If you're looking for a browser to safeguard your identity while surfing, you'll want to try out this app.

e-Capsule Private Browser HD downloaded quickly, but the installation process had us jumping through a few more hoops than we would've liked. The browser interface is nicely designed and free of the button-and-field-toolbar clutter that plagues many browsers. Instead, Private Browser offers only a few essential buttons with its menu and URL field, including a button for checking your IP address and hiding your identity for anonymous surfing.

This tabbed browser performed well in all our tests, although it was slow in opening a few sites we tried. Initially we liked that it prompted us when we clicked to enter and to leave encrypted pages, but that soon became annoying and we turned off the feature. (A similar feature that would sound a tone or pop up a small icon in the taskbar might be more appealing than having a large message box appear in the middle of the page.)Opening the browser requires entering a password and waiting for a launch process similar to an installation process, which could aggravate users accustomed to instant Web access.

Private Browser offers some security in surfing that other free browsers don't. There's a short 14-day trial, but it's long enough to know if its features are worth the price to you.
