Sunday, May 22nd, 2016

Polarity is one of the new lightweight web browsers on the market and it is gaining considerable amount of speed. The browser is known for its security features, such as the “Do not Track” and AdBlock, which successfully block unwanted content and unusual sharing of personal information. The browser is also compatible with WebGL and HTML5.

The fast rendering of different web pages is guaranteed thanks to the dual-engine browsing offered by Polarity, using the power of both Chrome and Trident. The web browser is also as customizable as the rest of the competition. Once again, this browser offers incredible extensions, apps and themes for a full personalization of the user’s experience. A cool feature unavailable for other browsers is the use of your own photos as a background. Apps are accessed from the bottom of the window, while your main app stays in front of all windows.

The whole process of making the browser one customized friend, starts from the very start, when you install it. Everything begins there, home page, themes, extensions, search engines, tabs, pop-ups and even shortcuts. Maybe one of the most interesting features is the voice recognition, giving you the chance to write with your own words. You can do many different tasks with the voice commands. An entirely new feature called omnibod, provides you with web pages from your bookmarks and past history. With only few clicks you can extract more information from the current page that you are viewing.

Flashstopper for Firefox

Tuesday, August 26th, 2014

Perhaps the most irritating elements on the web are auto-playing contents. This is often a video that abruptly begins actively playing with or without audio, a colorful flashy advert which makes you dizzy merely by glancing it, or audio-only content.

Not only will this end up being very annoying given that it’s not at all times obvious exactly where audio might be originating from especially if you have multiple tabs open, but it’s also simply distracting and may even effect the load of your system too.

Whilst the click-to-play setting in Firefox might be an answer for it, because it prevents all Flash contents automatically, so therefore,  it might not be the perfect option.  For example, it doesn’t block HTML5 video contents from getting played on websites like YouTube. Additionally, it might not reveal information regarding the actual content that the particular website wants to play.

That’s where Flashstopper comes in… (more…)

Baidu Spark Browser

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014

Baidu Spark Browser is a web browser which is based on Chromium and enhances the typical tools seen in other browsers and brings a few new ones in order to improve your ’ browsing experience.

One thing that makes the browser stand out is  the capability to navigate using mouse gestures. You can use different functions when you move the mouse while holding the right button, including opening and closing tabs. This feature is particularly useful for people who frequently read web content. You’ll find the gestures you need to perform different tasks in the Tools submenu under Settings.

Another thing noticeable about the browser was the advantage that you dont need to install another program or extension in order to download videos or audio.You only need  to click the Media button when navigating sites with relevant media to download whatever you want. You can also watch videos in their own pop-up window.  In case you are interested in torrents, then you’ll discover a dedicated button for that.

Beside the two buttons is another button which has a scissor image , this is used for taking screenshots. You can either capture an entire page or click on the left mouse button and drag to select the area you want to capture. When you select a region to capture, the browser gives you a number of editing options, this includes the ability to add annotations. (more…)

The great thing about open-source software such as Google’s Chromium (on which the popular Chrome web browser is based) is that there is always somebody prepared to take the source code and move it in a new direction, or at any rate add new or better things lacking from the original program. ChromePlus is one of these things, taking Google’s progressively popular browser and sticking on various new features to give it additional functionality.

Now, ChromePlus – which recently updated to version (repairing several bugs) – provides 5 features lacking from Chrome: firstly is support for mouse gestures, letting you execute various actions by dragging the mouse in a certain manner (for instance, to scroll the page down, click and drag down the page using your right mouse button). The 2nd feature is “super-drag”, which lets you click and drag on a chosen weblink to open it up in a new tab, or click and drag selected text to search it using your default search engine.

The IE tab allows you to view those webpages that don’t work in ChromePlus in a new tab using the Internet Explorer rendering engine, seeing to it they work right, whilst you can also double-click tabs to close them. The last extra feature is support for third-party download tools – if you’ve installed stuff like NetAnts, FlashGet3 or WebThunder (among others), you can right-click a download link to download it utilizing one of these tools.

Another thing worth mentioning is the privacy features are entirely customizable, a big difference from chrome.

The latest version of ChromePlus is now available for free download. Check out the homepage at

Firefox 4 Beta

Monday, July 12th, 2010

Mozilla have released the first public beta of Firefox 4, and whilst it’s not exactly stable so far, the browser already includes a few worthy of note changes that are well worth a closer look.

Take Flash, for example – are you tired of applets crashing your browsing session? Mozilla are, too, and so beta 4 gains different crash avoidance features to inhibit this from happening. If Flash, QuickTime or Silverlight crash or lock up in that case they will no longer bring down the complete browser, and you can simply refresh the current page and attempt to view it again. Sounds fine to us.

One obvious interface tweak sees the tabs moved to the very top of the browser window, which Mozilla say this is giving them “top visual priority for more efficient and intuitive browsing”. Everyone else will say it’s simply borrowing from Chrome, however either way, it does fit in for a cleaner, simpler interface.

Also along the same lines, it’s good to set eyes on the menu bar replaced by a solo Firefox button, top left of the screen. Clicking this gives you entry to a good number of the options you require: New Window, Save Page As, Print, Find, History and the rest. Furthermore again, it altogether helps to make simpler the browser, cutting down the amount of places where you have to click to look for commands, as well as leaving the biggest quantity of space available for the web page you’re looking at.

The Add-Ons Manager has been changed, now taking up an entire tab of its own, and making it easier to discover new-found extensions and handle the ones you have already.

And elsewhere there are privacy improvements, recent support for HTML5 and CSS3, and several changes that may perhaps turn out to be very useful in the future. Indexed DB, for instance, will permit sites to save data locally, therefore apps like GDocs can operate even while you’re not connected to the internet.

There’s enough to discover and performance seems good quality for a beta. If you’d like to give it a check out, then download your copy here.
