Hydra is more than a browser- it’s a charity project as well. Hydra is – in fact – Robin Hood of software world – taking from the rich companies and giving to those who need it the most – children.

There are two main aspects of Hydra Aid , first, there is a donate-per-download principle, where each new Hydra install brings 0.10 US$ to charities. Once Hydra reaches a million downloads, 100,000.00 US$ is donated, and the cycle starts again. Second is the profit share, where 50% of all of the remaining profits is being donated to charities. First can be the reason to download and try Hydra, and second can be a reason to continue using it, as it is not only beautiful, but also very interesting and useful piece of software.

Download Hydra Browser Here

  • Tabbed browsing – just like you used to in Opera, Firefox and IE7 (well, it’s very useful, right?)
  • Multiple web sites organized into Presets and opened with a single mouse click (Favorites on steroids…)
  • Customizable Power search – define your own search providers and search multiple sites at once – set it and forget it! (record your search as a macro, much like in Office programs…)
  • Customizable ads and popup blocker, as well as phishing filter (Everyone seems to have one, so I built it in…)
  • Clear your tracks – view and delete your browsing history, cookies and temporary files – leave no trace behind (…and now the famous guitar riff from Paranoid, can you picture it… anyways, you’re safe from your wife, but the Feds will get to you eventually …)
  • Automated logins – record your logins, protect them with a master password and put them in a preset – open all of your login sites with just one click (this one REALLY saves time…)
  • Support for mouse gestures (cute, but…)
  • Sidebars for web 2.0 sites, and a bunch of funny gadgets to open in a sidebar and have fun while browsing the Net (and that’s fun, it really is…)
  • Form filler – save your forms and profiles, and let Hydra fill those boring fields for you (at least it tries to…)
  • Tons of different bookmarklets to make your browsing experience richer – you can even automate them to achieve GreaseMonkey lookalike effect (don’t exagerrate with these…)
  • Limited support for Greasemonkey scripts (meaning, what works with IE is built right in…)
  • Organize your favorites into categories and groups, import favorites from IE and give them new allure (the last phrase added just because it sounds soooo marketingly – and I’m positive that there’s no marketingly in English language, though it should be by now…)
  • Extract links and images from web pages with a single click of a mouse, or you might extract absolutely everything from the page you’re looking at and save the files on your disk separately or as mht archive!
  • Integrated RSS reader saves your feeds into a database and lets you read your favorite news more comfortably(I like RSS, and it’s going to get better and better…)
  • Customizable RSS viewer – edit a simple HTML template and enjoy reading news your way (little work for you too…)
  • Full fledged Download manager built right into your browser (well, to be honest, it needs to be improved a bit, but basically it works ;-)
  • Listen to your favorite Radio station at the same time you’re browsing the web, or simply pick one of the few hundred stations allready built into the software (if that doesn’t sounds like fun, man, I don’t know…)

Hydra is much more than just another IE shell – it is a perfect companion for your favorite browser, and you can even have fun using it.

Hydra sports a completely new look, following the Office 2007 look & feel, and though it might be a bit awkward in the beginning, you’ll be hooked on it soon enough, so take good care…

    Hello!
    As author I am more than happy to help anyone having any problems with Hydra. CAS please send an e-mail through the contact form on the website, I am sure we’ll work this out somehow (if possible…). I guess you might be using 64-bit OS as this is mainly the source of such problems, as Hydra is not 64-bit ready (yet…).
