Take Black Dragon on a flight around the Internet, and visit your favorite web pages, with this straight forward, lightweight web browser

editor's review





The only way to reach the information superhighway is by using an Internet browser. Black Dragon is just one option, out of countless others. It is a simple web browser which you can use to visit your favorite pages.

Simple open source application

Black Dragon is editable by anyone who considers it needs something more. Truth be told, it does need a lot more. The application comes with limited resources, other than the necessary elements to be a web browser, such as the address bar, and some space to view the page, it offers little else.

First of all, visual details are kept to a minimum, the black background, and the buttons that are outlined with red, as well as the color of the text, are the only colors you will see other that the content of the page.

Moving on, regardless of the fact that the main window is adjustable in size, the page itself will be displayed in a standard size that can not be changed. Furthermore, if the main window is made smaller than the content, it will be impossible to view everything, because no sliders are present to navigate around.

Limited to page browsing

There are no options for favorite pages to be kept track of, nor is there a history tab to show what was accessed. There is a "Settings" button present, but other than “OK”, and “Update”, you can only view a little info about the browser. It does not excel in speed, however it does not take too much to load a page.

To end with

Taking everything into consideration we can say that Black Dragon has not yet learned to fly, nor can it spit flames. Its limited options make for a poor Internet browser, with nothing to make it shine. In case you stumble upon it and decide to use it, bear in mind that it is open source, so feel free to add any enhancements you think it requires.
