WebPositive (or Web+) – the Haiku native web browser. One part of its name is a tip of the hat to BeOS’ simple NetPositive, the other points to its modern foundation: the WebKit. This open source HTML rendering library is at the heart of other mainstream browsers as well, like Safari of Mac OS X and Google’s Chrome. By using the ever evolving WebKit, Web+ will be able to keep up with new web technologies.

Webpositive supports most HTML5 features, including ‘audio’ and ‘video’ support, while geolocation support is still being worked on. WebPositive does not currently support any form of plugins, although developer Stephan Aßmus has suggested that he may look into plugin support in the future.

Surfraw – a fast unix command line interface to a variety of popular WWW search engines and other artifacts of power. It reclaims google, altavista, babelfish, dejanews, freshmeat, research index, slashdot and many others from the false-prophet, pox-infested heathen lands of html-forms, placing these wonders where they belong, deep in unix heartland, as god loving extensions to the shell.

Surfraw abstracts the browser away from input. Doing so lets it get on with what it’s good at. Browsing. Interpretation of linguistic forms is handed back to the shell, which is what it, and human beings are good at. Combined with netscape-remote or incremental text browsers, such as links links, w3m, and screen a Surfraw liberateur is capable of navigating speeds that leave GUI tainted idolaters agape with fear and wonder.

The project developer is Julian Assange.

Internet Explorer (formerly: Microsoft Internet Explorer, MSIE) – a web browser, a product of the American company Microsoft. Internet Explorer in a Windows version is developed on base of the Mosaic code purchased from Spyglass. The program was officially presented on August 23, 1995.

Up to version 6, Internet Explorer was a set of three modules – a web browser, e-mail program and news reader. The last two modules were in the form of one program called Outlook Express. An important feature of Internet Explorer is the open nature of the program, thanks to which third companies can create so-called plugins that extend the functionality of the browser.

Internet Explorer is developed only in a version for MS Windows operating system, there were also versions for other platforms – including Mac OS and Mac OS X (based on Tasman engine, in 2003 the development of IE for these systems was discontinued) and Solaris and HP-UX (discontinued in 2001).
