Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009

This alternative browser streamlines Web browsing with an inventive function called Surf-Ahead. When you right-click one or more links, iRider opens them invisibly and displays them as thumbnail snapshots in the Pages sidebar.

Using the Next Page command, you can review downloaded items at your leisure. Pinning pages in the sidebar saves them, even between restarts. iRider s approach to pop-ups is similarly inventive. Rather than simply blocking ads, iRider shovels them off to the Pages sidebar. Some users may like this approach, but some may prefer to allow ads via the traditional whitelist feature.

iRider performed nimbly and took up 50MB of memory with 50 pages open, which is no more than Mozilla or Opera. iRider s Surf-Ahead probably isn t enough to win users away from other free browsers, but it offers a real benefit to IE users.
