Here are some things that <FONT COLOR=#00420c><B>BrowseX</B></FONT>&nbsp; does, which current browsers maybe don't. 
Potentially, these are reasons why a person might want to switch to <FONT COLOR=#00420c><B>BrowseX</B></FONT>&nbsp;.
Those with stars in front are either unimplemented or in progress.

<A NAME=sect1><H2> Uses less memory and quick start ups</H2>
It runs in about 1/3 the memory of Netscape Navigator.

<A NAME=sect2><H2> Options to disable or control memory-hungry, animated gifs</H2>
Animated gifs consume vast amounts of memory, and with some sites can be
immensely distracting.  Netscape offers only two options: disable images or
hitting escape after a page loads.  And animated gifs on some pages 
consume massive amounts of CPU.
<FONT COLOR=#00420c><B>BrowseX</B></FONT>&nbsp; supports a whole range of configuration options including:
disabling just animated gifs, enabling but limiting max iterations,
all the way up to using memory buffers to reduce CPU usage to zero
at the expense of RAM.
And there is also a rate-variable popup viewer..., well you get the picture.

<A NAME=sect3><H2> Netscape resizing or back/forward page is slow</H2>
Don't know why.  Layout engine problem?  In <FONT COLOR=#00420c><B>BrowseX</B></FONT>&nbsp; its fast.

<A NAME=sect4><H2> Auto pre/post-pend of http://www. + .com</H2>
Some versions of IE and Netscape are bent on contorting this handy 
feature whereby typing in a non-local name prepends http://www. and 
appends .com.  <FONT COLOR=#00420c><B>BrowseX</B></FONT>&nbsp; supports this, which can save much time and many typos.

<A NAME=sect5><H2> Reduced Blank-Screening</H2>
Because of network delays, Netscape frequently leaves you staring at 
a blank screen.  This is due to the widespread use of tables to control 
page layout.  But HTML 3.2 Tables requires all html 
to be downloaded before rendering a table layout.  To address this,
<FONT COLOR=#00420c><B>BrowseX</B></FONT>&nbsp; does not clear the view until the html main page has been downloaded.
There is an option enables incremental parsing, but it is still
being debugged.

<A NAME=sect6><H2> Embedded Script Language</H2>
<A HREF="Tml.html">TML</A>.

<A NAME=sect7><H2> Download a URL, for which there is no link for</H2>
Ok, you go to your web site.  You know a file is in a specific directory
but there is no link in the index.html file for it.  The only way to get it
is to add the filename to the URL, let it display, then save-as.
<FONT COLOR=#00420c><B>BrowseX</B></FONT>&nbsp; has a download menu pick.

<A NAME=sect8><H2> View Source provides Find and SaveAs</H2>
One of the nits about Linux Netscape is that after using View-Source
the only way to do a search is to close the window, use SaveAs
from the main menu and then open the file with your editor. 
The <FONT COLOR=#00420c><B>BrowseX</B></FONT>&nbsp; View-Source (and other windows) provide Save/Find functions.

<A NAME=sect9><H2> View HTML for a selection</H2>
This handy feature allows highlighting a section of a page and viewing 
the HTML source for just that selection.  Thus specific
HTML can be identified without a labourious search
through thousands of lines of machine generated HTML.

<A NAME=sect10><H2> Run System Commands</H2>
The Edit menu contains an option to run a system command and capture
output.  When viewing a file: document, the right mouse button can
run commands against links (like grep for instance).

<A NAME=sect11><H2> Absence of Java related crashes/hangs</H2>
As TCL is highly stable and efficient crashes are uncommon.  
Javascript is interpreted, Java byte compiled.  
Tcl is in between: incrementally byte compiled.
Tcl also can be extended more easily than nearly any other language.

<A NAME=sect12><H2> Eliminate annoying Java pop-up advertising windows</H2>
Since Java is not present, those annoying popups will no longer be a problem.

<A NAME=sect13><H2> Delete cookies and authorization</H2>
The current browsers requires you to exit to clear authorizations or cookies.
This feature permits removal of cookies and/or login authentications/passwords
without having to exit.

<A NAME=sect14><H2> New View Inherits Current View+Paths</H2>
In Netscape under Linux, opening a new view goes to your Home URL.
With <FONT COLOR=#00420c><B>BrowseX</B></FONT>&nbsp; it uses the current view, and copies the click path.
Just use go-back and you are at the page you forked from.

<A NAME=sect15><H2> Broken links and #Ref links within a document</H2>
When is a link with a #Reference in the same document?
With browsex, it's when the cursor changes to a fleur (4-way arrow).
So you easily know when not to shift-click.
Similarly, if the #Reference does not exists, or if
it's a file: link that is broken, you get the pirate cursor.

<A NAME=sect16><H2> Hyper-Search Shortcut</H2>
Hypersearch allows defining shortcuts to your favorite search sites.
For example, a deja news group search can be performed in a single
web fetch, as opposed to three fetches.  Just type the query into
the search box and hit enter.  Change the current search site
with a menu pick and you don't even have to type the search string again.


<A NAME=sect17><H2> Native Support for Safe-Tcl</H2>
Safe-TCL programs may be run imbedded within web pages.

<A NAME=sect18><H2> An Embedded DB Client</H2>
<FONT COLOR=#00420c><B>BrowseX</B></FONT>&nbsp; supports the Postgres DB client natively.

<A NAME=sect19><H2> More Consistent Input Key Bindings</H2>
For example, the location and form text entries have the same key bindings
so Ctrl-U clears the field in both.

<A NAME=sect20><H2> Hide Menu and Status</H2>
In addtion to being able to hide the location bar and toolbar, the
status and menubar can be hidden.  Use Alt-m to reshow the menu.

<A NAME=sect21><H2> Auto reload of changed file: documents</H2>
This feature is handy when editing a document, and you want it to
reload automatically every time you save.  Cool when used with TML.

<A NAME=sect22><H2> Mouseless support: keyboard shortcuts for menus and links</H2>
It can be aggravating that Netscape requires a mouse
to access the menus or to follow links.  <FONT COLOR=#00420c><B>BrowseX</B></FONT>&nbsp; 
defines keyboard shortcuts for menu entry, and has a feature for
selecting hyperlinks from a menu pick.

<A NAME=sect23><H2> Report Broken Links</H2>
Page Info also summarizes how many and which local/#ref links are broken.

<A NAME=sect24><H2> Extracting a URL from a page</H2>
Scenario: You want to get at a URL, say to mail it to someone.
You move the mouse over a link, and the URL shows on the status line,
but you can't cut/paste the status line.  Also, may go off the end of the
screen.  You could click on the link, but sometimes redirects fuzz things up,
or it may be offline.
You could use view source, but there is no find function (Unix).
Maybe save-as, then open an editor ... what was I looking for again?<BR>
Ok, with <FONT COLOR=#00420c><B>BrowseX</B></FONT>&nbsp; Page Info option shows links and gif names, so you
can cut and paste URLs without searching HTML.

<A NAME=sect25><H2> Upgrades/fixes are usually miniscule</H2>
The download for <FONT COLOR=#00420c><B>BrowseX</B></FONT>&nbsp; is under 1.5 Meg
The scripts alone, about 1/4 Meg.  The self patching feature
reduces many upgrades to a few 10's of K.

<A NAME=sect26><H2> Web Snapshots: copying pages+images to a directory or zip archive</H2>
This useful feature lets you take a snapshot of the currently
viewed web-page, and save it to disk for later viewing or modification.
All images are copied and the references modified accordingly.
An additional function will include following links and rewriting the hrefs
so whole web trees can be packaged up into subdirectories and optionally
a zip file.

<A NAME=sect27><H2> *Add Bookmark To Subtree With Label</H2>
To add a bookmark into a bookmark subtree under Netscape requires two
operations:  <B> Add Bookmark</B> followed by <B> Edit Bookmarks</B>.
Moreover, the bookmark label is frequently insufficiently descriptive.
Since this is a very common operation and it is usually easier to catagorize
and label a bookmark when it is being saved
<FONT COLOR=#00420c><B>BrowseX</B></FONT>&nbsp; allows adding a bookmark directly to a subtree with label edit.

<A NAME=sect28><H2> *View contents of zip archive directly</H2>
Once you've packaged up a web tree, this function allows viewing the
contents without unpacking the zip archive.  Ideal for presentations and 
documentation, it provides a convenient package format for moving 
a web tree around as a single object.  PDF is often used to fulfill this
purpose.

<A NAME=sect29><H2> *Save/Restore Current Views</H2>
This feature is useful when multiple windows are open and you have to quit
the browser but would like to be able to resume all sessions at a later date.
This is also useful as a safeguard against crashes or hangs.  Nothing is more
annoying than having Netscape hang mid-way between a big research session
where you have 15 browser windows open.  Additionally, you may also 
choose to preserve the click-paths for each view.

<A NAME=sect30><H2> *Selective Cache Filter/Inspector</H2>
The cache filter allows filtering objects from being cached based on size
and/or domain.  The Cache Inspector enables casual inspection 
of the cache contents.  The goal will be to provide sort-by functionalities
as well.

<A NAME=sect31><H2> *Restart Failed FTP Transfers</H2>
When a large ftp file transfer fails, you have the option of deleting
or saving and restarting where it left off (uses reget).
