One more free browser, simple but not very attractive

The Off by One browser is one more free browser in the growing galaxy of free browsers. One of the advantages of this browser is its lightweight. Its size is only 1.2 MB. Off by One has full support for HTML 3.2. In spite of its small size, it also supports many HTML 4.0 extensions, such as frames. It has secure SSL support from OpenSSL libraries, which enables navigation to https:// websites.

Off by One can be run directly from a CD or a pen drive without having to install it. The browser also has WAV, image animation, and AVI playback capabilities. This browser offers identity protection or anonymous browsing. It has an image zooming feature, with which you will be able to zoom images on web pages. Also Off by One controls pop-ups with the help of its pop-up blocker.

Though it has some advanced features, this browser does not support javascript, applet, plug-in or Flash. Another thing I did not like about this browser is its interface, which is unattractive and very poor if compared to other browsers.

Guest OB1 was great in its time, but now it's positive ancient. It uses HTML _3.2_, not 4.01, and 5.0 is a fantasy. And forget plugins, none work.

OB1's only value nowadays is as a test browser for simple web pages, or as a way to view sites with unfriendly or "smart code". Stupid sites that redirect you can be ignored, sites that force a language choice can be prevented (i.e. the language of the country you are in, not the language you speak), and sites that won't let you view images from the context menu can't stop you.
