10. Deepnet refers to World Wide Web content that is not part of the Surface Web, which is indexed by standard search engines. Mike Bergman, credited with coining the phrase, has said that searching on the Internet today can be compared to dragging a net across the surface of the ocean; a great deal may be caught in the net, but there is a wealth of information that is deep and therefore missed. Most of the Web's information is buried far down on dynamically generated sites, and standard search engines do not find it. Traditional search engines cannot "see" or retrieve content in the deep Web – those pages do not exist until they are created dynamically as the result of a specific search. The deep Web is several orders of magnitude larger than the surface Web.
11. Phaseout is a flash-based shell for Internet Explorer. It adds some really impressive looking graphics and customizable skins to your Internet browsing experience. If futuristic looks and space inspired graphics are your thing, you might want to consider Phase Out.
Features. Phase Out has most of the essential features, but still lacks some of the nice bonus features such as a password manager, feeds, or parental controls. s a neat idea, but the browser seems a bit too distracting. The interface seemed just a little too busy and sacrificed speed. Phase Out is interesting, but not very intuitive, and lacking in features. We recommend using Firefox with an add-on skin if you need to personalize your browser's look. Or compare Phase Out with Google Chrome or Opera. Phase Out aims to be completely customizable and tailored to easy surfing. While the remote function is innovative, it seems unnecessary and doesn't add a lot of utility. Phase Out provides most of the tools of a good browser, but they are not as easy to use as we would like. Phase Out comes with top-notch security features, including anti-phishing. Since it's Internet Explorer based you can also remove your browsing history quickly. Phase Out is completely compatible with Internet Explorer, but on our computers ran a bit slower than we'd like. The futuristic look is neat, but not if you have to sacrifice speed. Refer to our Internet browser time trials to find the fastest browser.
12. Camino is a free, open source, GUI-based Web browser based on Mozilla's Gecko layout engine and specifically designed for the Mac OS X operating system. In place of an XUL-based user interface used by most Mozilla-based applications, Camino uses Mac-native Cocoa APIs. In late 2001, Mike Pinkerton and VidurApparao started a project within Netscape to prove that Gecko could be embedded in a Cocoa application. In early 2002 Dave Hyatt, one of the co-creators of Firefox (then called Phoenix), joined the team and built Chimera, a small, lightweight browser wrapper, around their work. The first downloadable build of Chimera 0.1 was released on February 13, 2002. The early releases became popular due to their fast page-loading speeds (as compared with then-dominant Mac browser, Microsoft's Internet Explorer version 5).
13. Seamonkey The SeaMonkey project is a community effort to develop the SeaMonkey all-in-one internet application suite (see below).

Shortly after the project's inception, development versions for RISC OS users were made available for download by the project'sautomated build system. NetSurf was voted "Best non-commercial software" four times in Drobe Launchpad's annual RISC OS awards between 2004 and 2008
