Kryptonite 6.0.400.0 Beta 4
Visit multiple pages simultaneously
Seeing how the Internet provides nearly anything of need, ranging from entertainment to business, surely the support of multiple tabs is a big advantage. These can easily be created by the press of a button and arranged in any desired way.
For enhanced ease of access, you are given the possibility to bookmark favorite pages and display them in a dedicated toolbar. Unfortunately, managing is limited, because you can only add and quickly access them, with no implemented function that allows you to save in folders or arrange them in the toolbar.
Set a starting and home page
Browsing through the options menu brings up several settings with which you can enhance browsing experience. In case you consider it a worthy utility, you can set it as your default browser. Moreover, several search engines, media and news sites can be set to quickly find desired info.
The “Home” button can be toggled on an even set to a custom web page. When launching the application, you can either choose to automatically be taken to the home page or the last browsing session, but unable to add a custom link.
Block content and pop-ups
Integrated features give you the possibility to be a little on the safe side. Specific web pages can be added to a list to prevent inappropriate content from accidentally appearing on your screen. Additionally, with the press of a button pop-ups are a nuisance no more.
Good but far from perfection
Even though integrated functions make it similar to some of the most commonly used browsers, it is a little rough around the edges. With a strong Internet connection, content still loads a little slow, and pages often seem to get stuck when loading.
To sum it up, Kryptonite is a good looking package filled with potential. It features nearly anything you need to access favorite pages, keep track of them with a history manager, and bookmark them for quick access. Ignoring minor glitches and the slightly slow speed, it makes for a good alternative if you're looking for a change.
