Multibrowser is a software for Microsoft Windows PC. It allows to control the starting of different browsers depending on the URL to be browsed.
In an intranet environment this is useful as some applications work better with one browser or another. It also allows the blocking of a specific browser by changing the policy-file, e.g. when a zero-day vulnerability is detected.
On one hand people have preferences with their browsers. On the other hand the systems operators want a control what applications are used. Multibrowser is the common middle ground.
Possible usage scenarios:
- Standard web browsing with Chrome.
- Access to the ECM with Internet Explorer.
- Disabling browser A for a week, due to a zero-day-exploit.
- Priorizing browsers (for http and https)
In the configuration file (which you can distribute to your clients) you are able to define, which URL or URL pattern will result in the using of which browser. Asterisk (*) can be used for wild cards.
You have a 30 day trial period for the application.

A word of caution: The access relies on the operating system helper application mechanism. When an application is not using it, then Multibrowser cannot regulate which browser is used.
