MicroSurfer Speeds Surfing With IE 5

MicroSurfer Corp. released version 1.1 of
MicroSurfer, a browser companion designed to speed and simplify surfing
with Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.

MicroSurfer
downloads all the links the user wants to visit for each session and displays
their content. There is no need to backtrack using the browser’s back button–a process that is often slower than moving to a new page on the Internet.

MicroSurfer downloads several sites at the same time, maximizing the bandwidth available via a modem connection. The latest version of MicroSurfer can be set so that it automatically opens all the stored links when it is launched. It also offers offline viewing–which enables users to save
money on their telephone bills.

“By separating the downloading of web pages from their
display, MicroSurfer allows users to surf through pages at speeds greater than
even the fastest Internet connection,” said
David Bernstein, president of MicroSurfer and the creator of the
program. “With MicroSurfer, you can surf to Web
pages instantly, in any order, with just a single click of your mouse.”

MicroSurfer, for Windows 95, 98 or NT, costs $29.95, backed by a
60-day, money-back guarantee.
