Web browser by a Pakistani teenager
A 19-year- old resident of Karachi, Sheikh Imran Ahmed, has designed a web browser 'Xtravo Explorer' which is powered by Microsoft Internet Explorer.
A statement here on Friday said that the beta version of Xtravo has grabbed the attention of the Internet users within few days of its release on www.jawoco.com and has been picked up/reviewed by international software websites such as www.softpedia.com.
It said that the browser by the Pakistani teenager is being downloaded on a massive scale and is receiving good reviews from its users who claim it to be very user friendly.
According to the users of Xtravo Explorer, even though it's powered by IE shell engine, it is comparatively better in performance, offers handy options which no other browser offers to date and is faster.
It offers tab browsing, image grabbing and a secure environment which blocks pop-ups and unwanted pages.
Imran has just completed A level and is interested in pursuing further studies abroad.
