Dark Fire Social Browser1.0 Beta
Dark Fire Social Browser is a lightweight Windows application whose purpose is to help you navigate on the Internet in a multi-tabbed environment.
The tool reveals a simplistic layout that embeds basic browsing controls. You can go to the next or previous webpage, refresh the current page, stop the loading process, access your homepage, as well as check out Properties via Internet Explorer.
Several buttons are integrated at the bottom of the main window for providing quick access to different online platforms, such as YouTube and Facebook.
Dark Fire Social Browser gives you the possibility to open multiple tabs. On the downside, it proves to be difficult to close the tabs because there are no buttons integrated within the tabs so you need to manually access the ‘File’ menu to accomplish the task.
Tests have shown that the web browser loads pages pretty quickly. It is not quite friendly with system resources so the overall performance of the computer may be hampered.
The web browsing experience is limited to basic functions. There’s no support for advanced features so you cannot browse on the Internet using private sessions, sync data across multiple devices, create bookmarks, get rid of history and cookies, work with a download manager, install plugins and themes, and fill out web forms automatically, just to name some options which could enhance Dark Fire Social Browser’s functionality.
Aside from web browsing capabilities, Dark Fire Social Browser comes packed with a text editor and MP3 player. The text editor looks intuitive and allows you to perform clipboard-related actions (cut, copy, paste), undo or redo your actions, save the text to RTF file format, and change the text in terms of color, font, font style, and size. The MP3 player disappoints because it only lets you import one file at a time. There are no special functions implemented, just simple buttons for controlling the audio playback.
All things considered, Dark Fire Social Browser does not impress much in terms of design and performance. It needs several enhancements in order to be able to compete with powerful web browsers like Chrome, Opera and Firefox.
