About

A Sub Project to BeffsBrowser, a Browser without extras.

With LightBrowse, a lot of features of BB is excluded, this browser is for those who wish to browse freely, but don't want the extra features of BeffsBrowser.

Important Notice

LightBrowse is in a Testing phase - Support including updates will be revaluated in 2018.

Features

LightBrowse is a independent Sub-project of BeffsBrowser, what this means is, it can be ran right beside BeffsBrowser, licensed seperately, and so forth, but is still under the BeffsBrowser roof. Its like a feature of BeffsBrowser, but ran in its own shell. Below is a comparison chart of features commonly found in BeffsBrowser comparing them to features of LightBrowse. Below the chart is details explaining what is limited and so forth.

Favorites: Favorites is limited in LightBrowse, as it is thought if you want a lot of features you would use BeffsBrowser instead, and just not use the extras. The concept is Browsing only focused.

Settings: Settings can help customize your experience, limited settings in light browse will mean, very minimal customizing, as with more settings the app becomes bigger, which isn't the concept of the product.

Minimum OS: Light Browse is starting with a Newer framework meaning compatibility to Windows 7 is limited, so I have decided not to support Windows 7 and older OS versions

Dependents

BeffsBrowser TabControl - Comes from the BeffsBrowser Respo

Gecko - Powerful under the hood component of the mechanics of browsing.
