Visual Explorer Review

Felix Cheng
The ultimate full featured web browser with advanced privacy, security and more
A review of Visual Explorer by Felix Cheng

If you think you've tried most, if not all browsers on the market then welcome Visual Explorer to the scene. A sleek browser with an uncluttered design and a rather keen eye on user privacy.

Visual Explorer is a moderately fast web browser with tabbed browsing; with the huge downfall of performance for those running Firefox, this browser might even be considered more stable.

Visual Explorer contains most of the features you might be used to in Internet Explorer but also included a new idea in the Explorer Bar. The Explorer Bar is a neat and organized box with gives you quick access to RSS feeds, favourites, history, the page source code and even a note pad to help keep you organized.

The browser itself is based on the Internet Explorer engine, so there isn't much new technology there; pages and CSS should be displayed the same way you'd expect them to as in IE. Even though the IE engine has a bad reputation, serious improvements have been made and Visual Explorer sure takes advantage of that.

We like to think of Visual Explorer as IE with style. That's because this browser supports many different colours and themes, a highly customizable search tool and a very effective popup blocker.

One unique feature of Visual Explorer which in hindsight, we were surprised nobody came up with was the printing web pages exactly how they looked on the screen. This is essentially a screengrab of the page as an image and then sending the screen capture to the printer for printing.

The browser also introduces some cool new features we don't often see in a web browser: Downloading videos from over 350 video sites, a built-in video conversion utility, an effective ad blocker and phishing protection inherited from Internet Explorer.

Visual Explorer features and highlights:
  • Access your favorite video sites with a single click
  • Download online videos
  • Convert videos between formats
  • Adds browsing privacy
  • Includes an ad-blocker
  • Advanced protection
  • Help avoid phishing websites
  • Customize the browser interface with themes and skins
  • Print web pages exactly how they look on screen
  • Perform instant Google searches with a single click
  • Easily manage your favorites, RSS feeds and more
  • Effectively track and manage your file downloads
