Dual-Core Engine

360 web browser integrates dual-engine (powered by both Webkit and Microsoft’s Trident layout engines) that offers an incredibly fast browsing speed.

You can choose between these modes depending on the websites you visit. By doing so, it optimizes the best web page experience for its users. If you don't want to get into choosing between the two, let 360 browsers do this automatically.

"Webkit increases the speed of opening web pages, while Trident improves the compatibility of our 360 browsers with online banking and video display web pages".

Sleek Interface

With its surprising browsing speed, the 360 browser has a well thought of interface. The app comes with a user-friendly interface, that roughly looks like Google Chrome.

The homepage shows you the thumbnails of websites you’ve recently or frequently visited. During the launch, you can customize the browser with various themes and appearances that best suits you. You can see your browsing history and other app setting options by clicking the drop-down menu in the upper-right corner of the browser.

Top-notch Security

Likewise, it filters out ads and scans any downloaded file for malware. Ads generally lie in two categories, popup ads, and ads on a webpage. 360 browser identifies both and filters them out.

When you visit a website, 360 browser provides the following protections to ensure safe browsing.

  • URL Cloud Security
  • Sandbox protection
  • System-level anti-injection
  • Process isolation

Features

The browser is integrated with a bundle of features that give the user a better overall experience. Following is the list of features built-in the '360 browser':

Gestures

Gestures make it easy to control the browser. With just a click on your mouse, you can draw gestures to perform a given action. Mouse gestures are enabled by default. You can simply turn it off if you don't need them.

Tab Search

It is there to switch between numerous tabs or open new tabs by typing keyword in the address bar.

Video Pop-out

You will get a 'Pop-out' message just above the video if you ever visited the web page with a video. Now, when you click on the message, the video is displayed in a pop-up window that always stayed on top.

Now what's interesting in it is that you can move the window to any position on the monitor, and watch the stream irrespective of the program you are using.

Updated Chrome core, now supports Chrome Store

360 browser uses Chrome extensions. You no longer need extensions to get an ad blocker or anti-phishing protection since they are already there.

Task Manager

To keep a strong check on your browser and each tab separately, navigate to 360 browser's Task Manager to gain an insight to statistics (Energy Impact and Memory Usage) for each tab/add-on.

Download Manager

360 browser uses its own download manager which means that you just have drop-down the URL in the URL box and hit 'Download', saving time and effort as a result of it.

Some Tweaking would be Great

The browser still needs some enhancement and performance improvement. It might look better and more organized if bookmarks are arranged and managed more carefully. How tabs are handled when a large number of webpages are opened needs some workout. Additionally, the browser needs more extensions. It also has a faulty SSL support. There are also some minor control glitches, which 360 browser can easily look over.

Summing Up

To wrap it up, 360 browser proves to be noteworthy and stands out as a powerful web browser that allows the user to remain secure and anonymous online. It's a good alternative to Firefox and Opera where you get speed and security along with a strong core set feature. Besides this, it has a simple and intuitive interface that requires no technical expertise.

Surely 360 browser is worth a shot.
