Smart Explorer is yet another web browser that focuses on speed and comes with a user-friendly interface.
The program's appearance is not particularly outstanding, since it is similar to the ones of other software, but Smart Explorer incorporates some simplistic elements that makes it easy for the user to navigate through it.
So, you can import and export favorites, work offline, synchronize data, use a search function and switch to full screen mode.
In addition, you can view the source code of a webpage in a text document, create and organize groups, as well as access the default mail client.
Furthermore, you can disable auto-popup pages, pictures, animations, videos and sounds, filter pictures, mark the current page, as well as use "Smart Cleaner" to remove content from the history of visited websites, temporary Internet files, user passwords, cookies recent pages and typed addresses.
In "Preferences" you can select your default email client, disable auto-complete for webpages, configure navigation options (e.g. don't play animations, videos or sounds), disable the system tray icon and background image, import skins, enable an external download manager, and others.
Indeed, Smart Explorer is pretty good when it comes to speed and comes with a well-drawn user documentation. But it doesn't incorporate features that we haven't seen before (although the tool uses a fairly high amount of system resources) and lacks important ones (e.g. mouse gestures, private browsing).
This, plus the fact that some features are disabled in trial version (e.g. you cannot open a webpage in a new tab) doesn't make Smart Explorer a strong candidate for an alternative web browser. We recommend it with reservations.
