Available comics include Dilbert, Peanuts, Marmaduke, Nancy, and the rest of the thirty-one daily comics that are available at United Media's Comic Zone.
The Comic Explorer enables visitors to surf through hundreds of comics, and is designed to encourage the site's visitors to read comics that they might normally not have read. The Comic Explorer designed and developed by Plumb Design, is a visual spectacle with "burbling vials of liquid, animated cartoon icons, and peel-away comics." Plumb Design wanted to make the process of finding a comic as fun as actually reading it.
>From Intel's viewpoint, the Comic Explorer was designed to showcase how sites can take advantage of the Intel Pentium II processor's performance. By utilizing animation and other effects which are calculated in real-time, the Java applet becomes a visual experience that will encourage visitors to read more comics than normal.
