The installation of 27 Tools-in-1 Wichio Browser is easy and intuitive. You can place the program files where you want them. After you finish the install and start the program you are informed that you have 45 days to try the program. Now that is what I call a real trial period..

When the program first starts you can pick and choose which features you want to include. Might as well try them all. You will find that 27 Tools-in-1 Wichio Browser automatically goes to your Internet Explorer homepage and imports your favorites too.

You should know that 27 Tools-in-1 Wichio Browser uses the Internet Explorer engine as its core component for rendering web pages, so Internet Explorer must be installed.

The first reason that you will like 27 Tools-in-1 Wichio Browser is that it is a tabbed browser which means that you can have a number of pages all open in one browser, instead of having multiple browsers open.
