Muddly is a powerful web browser.  It's aimed mainly at researchers, professionals, power users - anybody needing more browsing power and a better way of organizing their web activity and archive.

Muddly helps you to manage any amount of web content by providing a document format, and a means to save those documents in your Windows file system.

Muddly is now based upon Chrome

Previous releases of Muddly used the installed edition of Microsoft Internet Explorer.  We've now adopted a standalone installation of Chrome dedicated to Muddly providing an improved user experience and a stable, unchanging installation.  We've been testing the new Chrome engine for some time now and are pleased with the many improvements it offers.  We hope you'll like it too.

Gives you more control by providing multi-paned viewing, for instance 'Side By Side' or 'Top And Bottom' views with stackable tabbed viewing. What constitutes a 'Tab' in most browsers is a 'Document' in Muddly - a collection of tabs and panes saved in our document file format - a *.mud file. Mud files are saved wherever you want on your pc, network, or cloud-based file system. By harnessing the power of the file system, you gain a powerful tool for organizing your web archive. Multi-Paned Browsing Fully adjustable split screen browsing environment. Muddly supports 4 panes, Top, Bottom, Right and Left. These panes are further divisible for precise control of composite documents. All panes support multiple tabs, and all panes can be maximized and minimized. Muddly now saves your pane layouts and preferences to display toolbars and tabs.

With Muddly each top tab is a document, and each document can contain many panes and stackable tab sets.  Each pane can be quickly maximized for full screen viewing
