Editor's review for Acoo Browser
Although today’s modern browsers all feature tabbed-based browsing and popup blockers, Acoo Browser expands on these capabilities to create a custom browser that novices and web pros alike will find extremely useful.
Acoo Browser is a tabbed web browser built on the Internet Explorer browser engine. For this reason, you need at least Internet Explorer 5.5 to be able to run it successfully. It takes the best features from Internet Explorer and Firefox and adds several handy features on top of them, creating an unparalleled browsing experience.
Acoo Browser has given its users the opportunity to browse using tabs since before it was even a gleam in Microsoft’s eye and while Firefox was still experimenting. If you’ve used tabbed browsers before, you’ll recognize the Acoo Browser window right away. It allows you to have a large number of pages easily accessible through one window. Methods of opening, closing and organizing tabs are similar to those employed in the newer versions of Internet Explorer and Firefox.
Where Acoo Browser really shines is in its ad blocker. It is not simply a popup blocker, which blocks any popup window from being activated. Rather, it uses intelligent URL recognition to block all kinds of other ad content including iframes, flash ads, flash animations and ad banners. Though you might find similar features in an external ad blocker, Acoo Browser is the only browser with this functionality built into the core. Its algorithms are obviously effective, because the amount of clutter on the screen was reduced by about half when using Acoo Browser. It does a good job of eliminating only ads while displaying the other flash components of a site.
It can also suppress those annoying dialogs that pop up on unsafe websites that ask you to install ActiveX controls, which are usually spyware. Acoo Browser simply blocks this process entirely, ensuring that you don’t accidentally install harmful software.
For the web developers among us, Acoo Browser includes a source viewer with syntax highlighting along with a page analysis tool, which shows the elements that are executed, image information and more. If you want to know which code is being executed by the browser, you can use the source viewer and page analyzer to find out.
The browser also includes a handy calculator. Simply type a formula or other calculation into the search box and press enter and you’ll see the result in the main page area. This seemingly unrelated tool has actually come in very handy.
In addition to these features, Acoo Browser also includes those you’ve come to expect such as privacy settings, drag and drop link support, a built-in RSS news reader, mouse gesture capability and more. It also supports URL aliasing for typing in shorter versions of a long URL and the ability to load and save sites as a group, which comes in handy if there are a few sites you like to have open simultaneously.
Overall, Acoo Browser was the first on the block to do a lot of things we now take for granted, but it also includes a few features you still won’t find in either Firefox or Internet Explorer. It’s a powerful browser with proven capabilities that web developers and first-time users alike will appreciate.
