Another free browser


OffByOne (OB1 for short) has been around the net for a long time so I tried to give it a test run. Well, it's the tiniest browser I've ever run on windows, weighing in at less than 1.44mb. It's one of the safest browser out there as well, why?--It doesn't have java, javascript and flash support. This means no malicious codes can be executed and no stupid pop-ups or pop-unders to deal with.

So how can a browser be useful if it doesn't have support for these nifty java and stuff? Short answer is security, 'coz it leaves no tracks of your cache, history, or surfing habits. It's also great to surf online manga scanlation sites, most of 'em don't use fancy javascript/flash/java to run anyway.

Here's from the OB1site:

Reasons To Use The Off By One Browser

*You want an independent online/offline Web browser that loads and runs quickly and reliably on all Windows systems.

*You need a secure browser that protects your identity when browsing and leaves no track of where you've been.

*You prefer to browse the Web without pop-up, pop-over and pop-under advertising windows.

*You need to distribute a lightweight, consistent browser that behaves identically on all Windows platforms.

*You need a browser that can run directly from a floppy, CD, ZIP etc. without installation.
