Publisher's Description

Browster is a free plug-in for Internet Explorer users that speeds up Web searching by giving users a preview of their search results from the search page. The technology pre-fetches Web pages listed in search results. Users can then view this page, or the entire web site in the Browster window. As users browse their search links, Browster’s patent-pending LookAhead technology displays the preview window as users roll their mouse over a link.

Very handy, I believe I actually keep this. Makes searching through the search returns very simple and quick.

Google does the prefetch automatically and if you use firefox then there is an extension called googlepreview. Much better.

Browster "you like it or you like it not" but if you do not the uninstall leaves behind the Prefetch On/off..very annoying..here to solve it..(allways first backup you registry)

1. Open the registry editor by opening the windows start menu, clicking Run… and typing regedit into the dialog box

2. Navigate in the left hand pane to the key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MenuExt\Browster Prefetch On/Off

3. Right-click on the key and select delete

Browster caches the google/yahoo search results without you even opening them. You really should have a fast connection to take full advantage of such a feature, as the previous guy said.

Its such a great tool. I can search google without even clicking my mouse anymore...its all done by mouse movement.

I wish they would provide a changelog for this...
Id also like to see them make the browster window resizable.

I find it quite useful with a 256Kbps+ connection
