Privacy and Exploits - 7
OK, suspense over. The product is christened as 'BrowZar' and astonishingly has got a very small download size of 264 kb, and has got two wonderful skins available - black and silver. I choose the black one. (Black Hat.. :)
Wow, dosent it sound like a boon...??
Might be, but boons without banes exist only in Eutopia..Here we have got 'baboons' :D
So, whats the catch in Browzar?
This explains the reason of its small size.
2. Browzar dosent store the frequently used files on the local HDD, which means that web pages load up more slowly then conventional ones. With the slow and outdated IE engine, its more worse and bad.. I hate it..
'Cache'?? Am I sounding too geek ??
Umm.. firefox/mozilla users, just click here to view the cache stored on the HDD.
IE users, I cannot help myself saying - 'Dump in that bogus thing and download firefox'
3. IE isent the safest and bug free web browser we have seen. It has got a wonderful but bad history of serious remote exploits. So, whatever exploits that will be discoverd for IE will be harmful for browzar too..
4. It also deletes cookies at the end but this isent an original IE feature...Its available in firefox too..
But inspite of all things said and done, its quite a useful product that will provide you with at least some privacy if not all..Good for paranoids, bad for extra paranoid, the only reason being 'extra paranoids have got extra enemies'
(Sorry I know its a bad joke, but I couldent think of anything better.. :)
