Has anyone tried Xtravo Explorer Web Browser?

Hi all. I just stumbled across this http://xtravo.jawoco.com/features.php
Has anyone tried it, or know anything about it?? Thanks for any feedback. Kind regards.

I had never heard of it, but it sounded interesting so I installed it on a virtual machine.

It wouldn’t run because it requires M$ .Net Framework to run. I didn’t feel it worth installing that to run a web browser, so I uninstalled it. Uninstalling opens your default browser and loads http://jawoco.com/ for some reason, which is a search page apparently run by the same people that designed the browser. I thought it was going to load a “Why did you uninstall?” page, but nope, a search page…

I really do not understand why some people including those who always telling the truth :smiley: would consider not having .NET ?
That must not be a “reason” at all, since we are still using M$ or “Little&Soft”, whatever term you prefer
I’m not just saying that because I’m a Software developer…
You are robbing yourself of having tons of excellent and extremely helpful Applications !ot!

That is a known fact with this browser it would anyway hijack a home page of IE (not sure about Fox) when installed

Other then that, I cannot find any interesting points of having it including very doubtful security implementation. They declare having “predefined set” of those dangerous pages ??? Not much info about the said feature.

Probably their forum can shed some light on implementation/updates/maintaining that… … but currently I cannot be bothered at all


Another service or two to run ;D


Hi Dennis,

"You talkin' to me? You talkin' to me? You talkin' to me? Then who the hell else are you talkin' to? You talkin' to me?...
... ... Well I know that I'm not the only one here as in the rest of the famous quote ;D

What service?

…what gun?!

That’s disabled

Thanks Guys for you replies, and yes it did sound a bit interesting.
Oh well more browsers out there does mean more competition, which we will all benefit from in the long run.
Thanks and Kind regards.

That’s a bare-bones virtual machine that I use for testing.

Also anything else that is needed for a program to run like .net should be documented under system requirements. I notice some programs don’t tell you, and that could be annoying to people with limited download rate. Kind regards

I e-mailed Jawoco in a non complaining manner, and said that I think extra items like .net framework that are needed for a program should be documented in the system requirements. This could assist people with limited monthly downloads, because they may choose a different time to install it. Jawoco has returned my e-mail in a very professional and apologetic manner. Also offering to compensate me for any inconvenience, which is definately not necessary. Because of this pleasant reply about my suggestion, I am considering giving it a try sometime, if I do I will give some feedback about it. I thought I would tell you all this incase anyone was considering trying it, that Imo the devs of this program appear to be very nice and very supportive. Kind regards.
