Web browser vendor Bigfoot is looking for partners in Europe to help it launch an alternative browser to Netscape?s Navigator and Microsoft?s Internet Explorer.
the company?s browser, Neo Planet, was released three weeks ago in the US and launches in Europe will follow. Bigfoot co-founder Lenny Barshack said: "We are looking for distribution partners in Europe but the product is a free download. Simply put, it is just an easier thing to use than Navigator."
Barshack, whose official job title at Bigfoot is Mr Big, said Neo Planet offers an easily customised browser, which can be tailroed for particular vendors or users. "You can have a women?s version or an investor?s version for example, with appropriate links."
The product groups bookmarks into chanenls which are displayed next to the browser window, to make navigation simpler.
The product?s technology is similar to Internet Explorer. "It is a different shell with the same chocolate," Barshack said. The company hopes that its small 400 kilobyte size will help it win market share from its more established rivals. Although Neo Planet?s browser is free, the company makes money via a advertising window within the product and from deals with companies that want to resell the browser in a customised form.
