Despite developer’s general inclination for the utmost simplicity, some users argue that web browser have become more complicated than ever and that many of the functions they hold are pretty much useless.
For those agreeing with this opinion, SkyNet is a web browser at the exact opposite end of complexity, making available the bear necessities and sometimes even less than this.
Looks and functionality
With sheer simplicity at its core, SkyNet web browser does not cater for the user that is constantly accessing online resources in search for huge amounts of information.
A simple glance at the interface tells you exactly what the application can do because there aren’t any hidden functions available.
What you see is exactly what you get, which is a minimum of functionality that consists in an address bar and the commands for navigating back and forth.
Created in .Net Visual Basic Language, the application launches the pages quite fast but even if this is a feature sought by the modern user the lack of more options would prevent them from trying it out.
The context menu is also on the skimpy side as far as choices are concerned by it includes the possibility to copy links, print pages or to access the source of a page, an action completed with the help of Windows Notepad.
SkyNet browser is not for the modern user, who prefers more options and a lot more flexibility from a web browser. On the upside, it does not put a stress on the system as the resource usage is quite acceptable.
