Once upon a time in the west,
a young lad by the name of Richard Jon Vivash was
One day Richard thought to himself: "...all these browsers available, with all these cool features...What if someone could make a browser with all of these cool features and distribute it for free!!!!"
Rich had some experience in programming from way back in time - when the hippest computer around was the Amstrad CPC464, which, as a matter in fact, he got for Christmas one year. How fortunate!! ;)
So in the late Winter of 1999 Rich sat down and started this "little" project of programming a browser with all kinds of features in it. Just for personal use!! Slowly the work progressed as his was "borrowing" features from the wast amount of downloaded browsers.
But as time went by, Rich got other things to do and lay the programming on the shelf. For nearly a whole year the project lay abandoned before being dusted off and resumed.
When the project was finally finished (if you can call "just the basics done" finished), he sat back and enjoyed his very own custom made browser - iNet-Tabs!!
One day, a friend of his saw the browser and was quite impressed. He suggested that the browser should be uploaded to some freeware sites, because such a cool browser just had to loved by "the masses"!
After a short while the feedback started pouring in from around the world! Just for the fun of it, Rich tried doing a search for his program on Google, and to his amazement, hundreds of results came up, ranging from Japanese FTP's to Spanish freeware sites!
So here we are with todays version of iNet-Tabs or ITabs or IT or etc. etc...
We have a saying here in
Denmark that says something like this:

and it's features:
OK, now that we've heard about
iNet-Tabs, how about taking a closer look at Richard Vivash:
At first he had some jobs in
the TV business doing some video editing, which is his favored line of
work. Plans for the furture look something like this:
I wish to thank Richard for fitting my questions into his busy schedule and I have to thank Teknidermy for giving me the oppotunity to write this article!
