MicroBrowser is a lightweight Windows web browser whose purpose is to help you navigate on the Internet and access several online platforms, like Dropbox and Google Docs, using a single click.
The program is portable and can be deployed on USB flash drives or other devices so you can carry it with you all the time. It can be run without administrative privileges on a target computer. No settings files are left behind on the host system so you can get rid of it using a simple deletion task.
GUI needs refinements
The web browser does not make a very good impression in the visual department. It reveals a plain design with large green buttons for activating web browsing-related tasks. You can only perform searches on the Internet in a window with a preset size, which is pretty inconvenient when it comes to reading articles.
Basic navigation controls
MicroBrowser offers you the possibility to go to the next or previous webpage, stop the loading process, as well as refresh the current page. What’s more, you can perform searches on Google and access several online services, namely Dropbox, Google Docs, Microsoft Office Online, and Zoho.
The aforementioned online services can be accessed with a single click, provided that you set up the authentication parameters (username and password).
Tests have shown that MicroBrowser does not load webpages very quickly. It eats up CPU and memory resources so the overall performance of the computer may be hampered.
All things considered, MicroBrowser needs several functionality improvements and a GUI facelift to become a reliable web browser. It does not offer support for advanced features so you cannot view a history with all accessed websites, clear history items and cookies, browse on the Internet using private sessions, create bookmarks, open multiple tabs at the same time, and sync data across multiple devices, just to name a few suggestions.
