Browsers tend to divide users in very definite camps. Many, many people are Firefox fans, lots can't bear to let go of Internet Explorer, while a brave few use alternatives like Chrome and Opera. People are normally so devoted to their browsers, in fact, that they rarely change.

This all boils down to one thing: developers with other browsers - like TheWorld Browser - have a hard task cut out for them. In many ways this is a pity, as this particular newcomer is packed with features.

TheWorld Browser has all the features you would expect these days, from tabbed browsing and address bar search engine to flexible download manager and multiple privacy options. It is based on Internet Explorer and so has a few features that users of other browsers may not be familiar with, such as the ability to preview all your open tabs on a single page and use TheWorld Browser as a system explorer. As you use it, TheWorld Browser's links with IE become more obvious, as it references the Microsoft browser several times, shares plug-ins and assumes that IE, and not any other browser you might have installed, is your secondary browser.

The one thing that puts TheWorld Browser ahead of its big brother is the fact that all of its configuration options are so easily accessible, via drop-down menus and icons at both the top and bottom of the browser. Some users won't want so much visibility, but if you are looking for easy-access control, plenty of features and a familiar setting, you could do a lot worse than TheWorld Browser.

Although I can't imagine anyone abandoning Firefox for it, TheWorld Browser is a completely viable alternative to IE.
