Orbitum is a free web browser which is based upon Google Chrome engine. Orbitum is basically developed to access all the social networking websites like Facebook, Twitter etc. along with normal web search, hence it has a separate chat window on the right hand side of browser.
Orbitum is similar to chrome in many ways and offers fast and safe web browsing with chat windows. It has a look and feel almost similar to Google Chrome, so much so that you wont be able to differentiate between the two. Have a look at the screenshot below.
The interface is similar because it is developed under Chromium Open source community. You can access any website on Orbitum and along with that login to Facebook chat window to chat with your friends, or login to VK, a Russian social networking website. One cool feature is that, you can have all your friends from various social networking websites under same chat window, making it really convenient. The address bar acts as search box as well, just like it does in Google chrome.
Open a new tab page called New Dial and you will see the above screen, which has almost all the famous social networking website’s shortcut created. You can then simply click to open any of these social networking websites. Based on your search history, it will show recommended list of websites, recently closed websites, you can add new categories and then open websites of a particular category.
To create a New Category, simply click on Add New Category, it will open up a textbox where you will have to specify category name. Once you assign it a name, click Ok, which will create a new category of the name that you specified. You can then add various websites under this category. I added a category named Latest, and after clicking on Ok button, it got me to this page, where I need to select websites under my Category. It is showing the list based on my visiting history, which is a cool feature.
