Web browsers such as Arora prove that browsers do not need to be big and popular -- like FireFox, Chrome or Internet Explorer -- to be good. Although Arora doesn't have nearly as many features as its more well-known counterparts do, this particular browser was built for speed.

Arora is based on the same webkit rendering engine that powers Safari and Google Chrome and supplies users with a clean, neat-looking interface designed for minimalism and ease of use. The standard tools and options expected from all web browsers are present in Arora, including a bookmarks bar, support for tabs, a download manager and an address bar that suggests results as you type. Arora also features a few less-common, but handy nonetheless, features, including private browsing and session restoration. The browser also includes built-in ad blocking support and boasts excellent search engine management.

What makes Arora stand out from the rest is definitely speed, however. The browser starts up quickly and loads webpages quickly.

Pros:

  • Arora's incredible speed means quick startups and powerful, fast web page rendering.
  • Private browsing and session restoration options are two of Arora's key features alongside its speed, but the built-in ad block is a nice addition, too.
  • The interface is pristine, clear and has an all-around nice look to it.
  • This browser is a good alternative for people interested in clean and simple browsers with good speed, or just alternatives to popular web browsers, so long as they are not too interested in adding tons of plug-ins or customizations.

Cons:

  • There is no support for Arora available. The last update to this browser was conducted in 2010, making it likely that this is an abandoned project with no fixes coming out for any potential problems users may find while browsing.
  • No support for plug-ins or advanced customization options are available.
