Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox are probably the most popular browsers nowadays. Each of them has its own adepts, who base their choice on such characteristics as speed and ease of use. On account of this, the idea of creating a web browser that brings together the best of Chrome and Mozilla is always welcomed. Blackhawk Web Browser was created with this purpose.
This browser looks very similar to Mozilla Firefox. It has a tabbed interface, as most modern browsers do, which allows you to open various web pages simultaneously. Moreover, you can change its appearance by using any of the various themes available. Also, it has an old-style menu where you can easily find most commands. Still, some users might prefer not to waste screen space on that. For them, there’s the possibility of simply hiding the menu.
The application can render the contents of web pages, even the heaviest ones, quite speedily and it uses less system resources than Firefox, mostly when you open several tabs at the same time. However, it doesn’t seem to be any faster than Chrome. Regrettably, it cannot handle every Chrome’s extension but it has a few of its own.
All in all, I’ve been using the latest version of Blackhawk Web Browser for a week without having any problems. However, I feel that there are not enough reasons that justify “converting” to this browser. Nevertheless, it’s advisable to keep an eye on future versions and wait for its developer to finally deliver something really different.
