Hide My Browser Free
Hide My Browser is a very simple-to-use application designed to quickly hide selected web browsers, as the name clearly suggests.
It features a few handy options that can be seamlessly figured out by users, even the ones inexperienced with such software. The tool offers support for Internet Explorer, Mozilla, Firefox, Opera and Netscape.
Accessibility via the system tray
Installing the program takes minimal time and effort. It create a system tray icon at startup to easily access it while casually carrying on with normal activity on the computer.
Select web browsers and remap hotkeys
As far as configuration is concerned, it is possible to handpick the exact web browsers to hide, as well as to modify the default hotkeys for hiding, showing, minimizing and closing them. What's more, Hide My Browser can be password-protected to restrict user access, and asked to automatically run at system startup until further notice. All changes are applicable with the click of a button.
Evaluation and conclusion
Hide My Browser was minimally invasive during our evaluation. We have not come across any issues, since it did not hang, crash or pop up error messages. CPU and RAM consumption was low. Too bad that it does not offer support for Google Chrome, Maxthon and other currently popular web browsers. Otherwise, the app serves its purpose quite well.
