You are required to go through an installation process which does not last very long and it does not offer do download any kind of third-party products. Once you finalize it, you come face to face with a pretty minimal and clean GUI, as it consists of an address bar, a menu bar, a few buttons and a pane in which to view web pages. It becomes quite clear that all types of users can learn how to find their way around it, without encountering any issues.
Use multiple instances and tabs, and refresh pages
This tool enables you to view any web page, by simply inputting the URL that interests you in the appropriate pane. In addition to that, it is possible to open several tabs in the same time and thus, it can cater to multi-taskers all over the world.
You should also know that you can go back or forward with the help of the integrated buttons, while you can also refresh the page at any point. Multiple instances can be opened, yet there is no context menu when right-clicking on a website, and there are no other notable options.
Conclusion and performance
CPU and memory varies from low to moderate and therefore, it is not going to put a strain on the system’s performance, and you can run it alongside other programs without facing any difficulties. All tasks are performed quite fast, the interface is accessible to all user categories and we did not come across errors or crashes in our tests.
Taking all of this into consideration, we can safely say that SmartFox is a pretty efficient piece of software, dedicated to people that want a very simple web browser.
