❀ Browser Features

Dynamic Cache-Less Browsing:
Don’t be fooled by its classic looks because the Classic browser is more technologically advanced then all the archaic cache-based competition put together and here’s why...

The Classic features dynamic cache-less rendering which translates to superb loading speeds by relying on TODAY’S modern hardware and Internet speeds to FETCH content as opposed to saving copies of pages on the hard disk. The browser cache is a now OBSOLETE necessity of the 80s and 90s when Internet speeds were in their infancy and reloading old saved data made sense.

As a bonus, in a cache-less environment HTTP ETags are utterly useless and provide no user-tracking opportunities for exploiters thereby guarding your privacy.

Furthermore, no gargantuan cache files are created on your hard disk removing yet another speed bottleneck and further protecting the privacy of your Internet surfing activity.

A dynamic cache-less browser also means that any references to cache control in scripts are obsolete so the browser always fetches the LATEST version of a page regardless, ensuring you always get the most up to date content.

Frankly, you’d have to be INSANE to ever go back to an archaic cache-based browser again!

Fantastic Bookmark Menus:
The modern Internet browser is all about YOUR favorites or the websites you love to visit regularly and that's why we've paid a LOT of attention to this area to give you the most beautiful, configurable, and versatile Favorites menus possible.

Revolutionary Internet Searching:
What could be easier and more powerful than typing once and getting search results from up to 12 unique search engines of your choice? You just can't beat that so expand your horizons with our Multi-Search!

Guaranteed Safety & Privacy:
What could possibly be safer and more private than a browser that is highly user-configurable but NON-programmable by 3rd parties, and one that doesn't save anything to your hard disk other than your settings? Let common sense prevail!

Superb Entertainment:
The Classic Browser includes special menus for Web-TV, Web-Radio, Web-Tunes, and popular websites. Top quality free LIVE Internet Radio and TV streaming from hundreds of channels is just a click away!

Respect for Users and their Systems:
No privacy violations, obligatory one-sided agreements, contracts, threats, or other types of user heckling. This browser respects both users and their computer systems like they deserve. The Classic will happily coexist with other browsers and software. It does not change your Windows registry, it does not add scheduled tasks, it does not add background services, and it does not need or request to be the default browser even. That’s what RESPECT for people’s computer systems is all about.

Tools you've always wanted:
We're not ashamed to admit that the Classic Browser has powerful scraping capabilities offered strictly for personal use. Please use them responsibly and wisely.

HTML5 Compatibility Checking:
We've exhausted searching the Internet but couldn't find a single decent HTML5 document checker so we added a native one for you! With this tool we offer you a treasure-trove of information and error checking on all websites. Enjoy it.

Local Media Support:
We haven't forgotten the hundreds of audio, video, and image files you've probably got sitting on your hard disk collecting dust. We unearth and give them new life for you in a beautiful menu for easy access. Pleaser note that this is not a file manager but a player/viewer menu for local files.

Faster Downloads:
Upon clicking a download link the precious seconds it takes for the "Save As" dialog box to appear and for you to enter and OK the pathname, are not wasted because the Classic Browser starts downloading immediately to a data buffer in memory and if you decide to cancel the data buffer is simply discarded but if you go ahead with the save much of the file has already been downloaded and stored in memory! This results in faster downloads thanks to this head start.

Powerful Screen Adjustments:
Apply powerful filters to websites like grayscale, sepia, and inversion or set the brightness, contrast, saturation, opacity, and hue. Special effects like page flipping, skewing, scaling, rotating and zooming can also be easily set. Have you ever surfed the Internet while lying down flat on a bed? Well now you can rotate the viewport to any angle!

RSS & Atom Feeds:
RSS and Atom Feeds are automatically detected and displayed in a fast, flexible, and beautiful built-in reader. Subscription syndicate feeds are not supported though.

Web Widgets:
Web Widgets are supported in a menu of their own. These are cute little gadgets that offer some kind of functionality like calculators, currency converters, games, and many others. Add/delete widgets as you please… Iframe, Object, and Embed based widgets are supported while inline Script based are not for security reasons.

Web Technologies:
Technologies supported by the Classic include the IPv6 protocol, WebSockets, TCP Fastopen (in Windows 10+), WebGL, WebVR, and WebRTC.

Another Chrome clone?
Absolutely not! The Classic Browser uses the Chromium engine strictly as a RENDERER-ONLY and that's where the similarities with Chrome end. Our entire interface and all number-crunching routines are custom written from the ground up including our Tab manager, History manager, Bookmarks manager, Password manager, Download manager, Events manager, and so forth.

Chromium is only called to pass a URL to it to display a website, in fact we have fine-tuned the highly configurable Chromium engine not only to support the latest web technologies but to also not waste precious time writing to your hard disk and thus the absence of Internet junk files.
