Euris 4c has announced an add-on to its browser, version 3.0. It shows Web site preview as thumbnail images, speeding up access to and the visualization of information about internet sites in the registry of favorite pages or the browsing history. 4c displays previews of Web sites or program windows straight on the user's desktop, where these can be opened with a mouse click. 4c plugs into Internet Explorer, providing a number of visual features.
If 4c is active on the system, it starts a special windows administration as soon as two or more browser windows are open. The window administration displays previews of all browsers. A mouse click on the preview will provide access to the Web site. Version 3 of 4c does not limit its features to Internet Explorer, but extends its reach to the Windows desktop. The taskbar displays a green task-icon. When clicking on it, 4c loads an alternative Task-Switcher. The Task-Switcher shows thumbnail previews of all program windows open. Clicking on such an image opens the corresponding program window.
When Windows XP groups multiple instances of a single application in the task bar a mouse click on the group button suffices to display a thumbnail preview of any individual program window. The thumbnail displays directly over the task icon. The windows can be opened and closed straight from the preview. A 21-day demo version is available in the USA as a download from the Web site. The full version key costs only $12.49.
