Plainview

Version: 1.0.1.157 || Release Date: 2008-11-19 || License: Freeware Developer: http://www.barbariangroup.com/barbaripedia | App Owner: dotdean

Plainview is a full-screen web browser.

Plainview has a presentation mode – so you can build a presentation of, say, 10 sites you’ve built, and then show them one by one. Skip to the next site by hitting a hot key. We use this a lot for our Dog and Pony shows. We fire up one site we’ve done. Browse around. Show it. Time to move on? Skip to the next site, without opening up a location bar. Seamless, beautiful presentations.
You can also save presentations, add bookmarks, import your bookmarks, exit full-screen mode, open multiple windows, and view Quicktime movies. And check out the slick way we manage popups!

AppFresh misreports the version number for this.

It's taken over from NagaraBrowser in my book.
For intensive reading and concentrating on a subject it's excellent, also I would like to use it for a presentation sometime - I did once using Opera - but this offers a little more sophistication in that department.

Oddly enough, I quite like this browser - it's a great app in the general camp of "focs/anti-distraction apps" - it focuses your mind squarely on whatever web task you're doing. Downloads and other tasks are handled well, though it's bookmark importing scheme is a bit clunky - I was expecting a hierarchical display of my bookmarks from Safari, and just got a whole list of links instead. Overall, highly recommended.
