Alternative browser company NeoPlanet Inc. this week introduced version 5.0 of its namesake browser.
NeoPlanet is a Web environment that contains Web browsing, e-mail, instant messaging, chat, and virtual community applications. Users can personalize their browsing environment through the use of "skins" -- predefined color and layout schemes that can be applied to the overall look and feel of the software.
Version 5.0 incorporates real-time instant messaging and chat capabilities, as well as a "friends and clubs" feature that allows users to form their own public or private mini-communities with Web pages that offer message boards and chat rooms, the firm said.
"Users can now have the wealth of the Internet's content, communication and community in a single package offering freedom of customization and total ease-of-use," said Scott Benson, CEO of Valent Software, a partner in the instant messaging tool.
Both versions are free to download from the NeoPlanet Web site, the company said.
