Which browsers don’t track you.
Internet Explorer needs a face-lift–but UltraBrowser, built on the IE engine, doesn’t add much to the familiar Microsoft package. It’s small enough to fit on a disk, and we liked the streamlined interface, but the program uses a bit more system memory than IE, and we noticed no improvements in performance. This browser is slightly more attractive than IE and includes a few very basic skins, but you’ll have to download them from the developer’s site. UltraBrowser provides a panel for quickly accessing search engines, but it can’t search several at once. Also, as with IE, UltraBrowser lacks tabbed browsing, so it has to open a separate window for each Web page; Firefox and Opera users who’ve grown accustomed to tabs will probably consider that a deal breaker on its own. The browser’s major distinctive feature is its ability to store favorites online. Nothing about UltraBrowser will persuade a non-IE user to switch, but it might attract those looking for a compact, IE-compatible Web browser with a few extra features.
