Polarity Browser Review

Sven Sorensen
A Chromium- and Trident-based browser with several added features
A review of Polarity Browser by Sven Sørensen

Polarity Browser is a lightweight and sleek web browser which relies on two different engines to render web pages: Webkit/Chromium and Trident from Internet Explorer.

The browser includes many of the standard features you might expect from such software like bookmarks, a new tab window featuring frequently visited web sites, easily accessible history, custom home page and a easy access to web search engines. There are a lot of different search engine provides included by default including Google, Yahoo!, Bing, DuckDuckGo, Yandex and others. Polarity also includes some not-so-good search engines.

The layout and menus seem very similar to Google Chrome, though the skin seems to have been tweaked quite a bit from the browser it forked from. Rendering of web pages is pretty competent while giving you the option to view pages the way Internet Explorer would. Polarity also offers the ability to customize the color scheme of the browser in the Preferences -> Color Scheme tab.

In terms of plugin support, Polarity Browser can add Google Chrome/Chromium extensions without issue. It also offers a feature for enabling compatibility mode for older plugins.

One rather cool feature included with this web browser is its speech recognition feature which enables you to control the browser just by using your voice; you can use it to open menus, browse web pages and even write emails on popular webmail sites like Gmail or Hotmail. On top of that, Polarity can also "speak back" using its TTS tool by highlighting text, right-clicking and hitting the "Speak This" option.

Overall, Polarity Browser certainly is an interesting web browser which is competent at rendering web pages using the latest technologies and standards. The addition of some extras above-and-beyond what the mainstream browsers makes it compelling.
