The Internet browser software category is ever-growing and usually the newest additions, just as some of the older apps, draw inspiration from successful engines that proved their value over time. Among them, GreenBrowser, an Internet Explorer-based solution tries to make a claim to glory.
The interface bears the marks of the well-known IE, but this particular browser brings a lot of improvements under the hood, such as a form filler, mouse gestures and, of course, tabbed browsing.
What's more, you can save several pages as a group, activate a boss key for quickly hiding the browser, create Speed Dials for opening your favorite websites with just one click, as well as install plugins.
While testing it, we found that one if not the most useful feature bundled into GreenBrowser is the fill manager. It automatically completes forms for you, so that you don't have to spend time writing down names, addresses or logins every time a webpage prompts you to.
If you like to keep many tabs open, you will notice the application can become a bit heavy on system resources, especially if the loaded pages contain a lot of Flash elements. However, you should note that this problem is not particular to this app as it occurs with most browsers out there.
The 'Options' menu is pretty rich and holds settings for all the features offered through GreenBrowser, including tabs, mouse gestures, popup filters and shortcut keys. You can customize almost every single function and personalize the way in which the software works on your system.
Overall, GreenBrowser can be a viable alternative if you are eager to try something else aside from the big brands in the business. It packs some quite handy functions and, given its ease of use, the program may appeal to a variety of users.
