NetCaptor 7.5.4

Turns the browser world upside down
NetCaptor is one of the browsers that once fought for supremacy in this particular software category, promising to offer at least the same goodies as the other top solutions.

The ace up its sleeve is the tabbed interface which allows users to browse multiple pages at the same time from just a single browser instance.

Relying on the classic look of Internet Explorer but with the aforementioned tabbed interface, NetCaptor was supposed to provide a different and superior browsing experience as compared to the existing solutions of that time.

A powerful popup blocker, a dedicated tool to clean the traces of your browsing session, plus mouse gestures and domain completion, all these features have been included in NetCaptor to turn it into one of the most advanced browsers a few years ago.

Only that it still lacks some of the features we'd like to see in such an app. For example, it's almost impossible to control the tabs without right clicking on them. While the tab bar is located at the bottom of the main window, the close button is placed at the top. There's no 'Undo Close Tab' option, so there's absolutely no way to re-open a tab you closed by mistake.

There are numerous options though, such as tab colors, domain completion, confirmations, mouse gestures and even a privacy policy scanner. On the other hand, you can't change the way it looks no matter how hard you try, it's basically impossible to modify more than the layout or add and remove some buttons or toolbars.

The good side about NetCaptor is that it remains light on computer resources all the time, but otherwise it lacks many important features that users might need in today's browsing world.

All in all, NetCaptor can hardly meet today's requirements, so it's better to stick to your main browser which most likely comes with more options. It's still worth a try though.
