Ladies and gentlemen, a new browser comes to the neighborhood! Look! His name is "TheWorld"...very curious name, isn't it?
The World Browser can be considered as a valid alternative to traditional browsers like Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, etc. Its engine is mainly based on IE, but the overall experience shows a clean and fast navigation.
Among his features, it's good to point the tabbed navigation with separate threads, gaining more stability and reliability. So, if one tab causes problems, we can just close it and get back again.
There is another cool feature: the skins support, you can download more skins for free visiting the official web site.
Personally I think it's a good alternative for basic users that don't need advanced features like web debugging (as Firebug does), but anyway I installed Google Chrome some days ago and I found all these features and even more. So it's up to you to decide which product fits better your needs.
The World Browser is absolutely free; it works on Windows 98 and above. So you can use it safely on slow computers.
