SmartView for IE is an application for the Internet Explorer browser that displays on the browser’s home screen your frequently visited websites, your web browsing history and your Facebook friend list and news feed. This application assigns a tab for each of the first three sections, while the Facebook news feed section is optionally presented in a side bar.
The application customizes your homepage so that you have quick access to the websites you are interested in the most. Where the Facebook friend list and news feed are concerned, you need to first login to your Facebook account so that you have access to them. In the "Top Sites" and "My History" sections, the sites will be listed along with a thumbnail view of them. There are two viewing modes for the listed sites, a flow mode and a grid mode. Moreover, items can easily be deleted from these two sections. In addition to this, your homepage will also include a Yahoo search bar. The application also allows for certain settings to be adjusted, such as background color and grid thumbnail size.
SmartView for IE is a handy utility that proves to be very useful if you want faster access to the sites you visit the most, to your web browsing history or to your Facebook news feed and friends' profiles.
