Review

As the name implies, Desktop Web Browser is a solution that helps users to navigate the Internet by using a desktop application. Once you've installed it, you need to type the website you want to access in the URL section and press 'Ok'. The browser will display the requested webpage as your desktop wallpaper.

The moment you enter the application, you get in contact with a rather minimalist interface, that has a URL toolbar and a couple of basic options. It lacks a colored background and maybe nicer crafted buttons.

When you start to use Desktop Web Browser, you first notice that you are able to set up the default URL webpage that will automatically be displayed on the desktop of the Finder.

Other available options consist of the possibility to change the transparency of the browser, or the refresh period, in case you want to automatically refresh the page.

It provides users comprehensive documentation helping to create shortcut keys for various actions.

Overall, Desktop Web Browser represents an innovative way of browsing the web from your desktop. There aren't many involved, but the functionality is pleasing.
