CE Browser 3.0
A compact and simple user interface
Running the application brings up a small toolbar that represents the start point, allowing you to open a new page or close all of them. You might want to find a suitable spot on your desktop to place it, as it cannot be minimized and is with you while browsing the web.
Content is displayed in a rather small window and there is no implemented function that allows you to switch to a bigger view, nor can you stretch the margins to resize it.
Very few options to work with
In terms of options, the interface is limited to navigation buttons and the URL field, which is cleverly filled only requiring you to write down the name of the desired web page. Unfortunately, there is no way to keep a record of your online activities due to the missing history tracker.
Furthermore, frequently visited web pages must be accessed each time by writing down the address because of the lack of a bookmarks manager. Even though you can easily open up multiple web pages at a time, they are not organized into tabs, but in different windows.
This is not necessarily a bad thing, but you have to make some room on your desktop, because when minimized they only stack up, not going to your taskbar.
To sum it up, CE Browser ventured off in dangerous waters for what it can do. Potential is high and the user interface is friendly enough, but some important missing features make it lack the integrity of a true web browser.
