CoolNovo is a web browser that is somewhat similar to Google Chrome with the addition of some unique tools and features. While CoolNovo's interface is basically exactly the same as that of Google Chrome, there are some differences in how one navigates through the program and how the download managers function. Users of CoolNovo can close tabs with a double click, and browsing using the app can be done with only mouse gestures. With this Chrome-like browser, links can be dragged and dropped to open them, and it is possible to open tabs for Internet Explorer into the context menu of CoolNovo.

CoolNovo developed the most recent version of its browser- in March of 2012, and the browser only takes up 1.1 MB of disk space. The CoolNovo app was previously known as ChromePlus, but its named has been changed since the launch of the most latest version. Fans of Google Chrome can try out this browser and determine if they prefer its unique features to the widely used Chrome browser.

While many people find that the features of CoolNovo make browsing at bit easier and more enjoyable than Chrome, fans of the app often express complaints that it is not possible to configure CoolNovo browser options. Although many users enjoy the mouse gesture feature of the browser, most users are disappointed that they cannot customize the feature to their liking.

Those who find Chrome to be attractive but somewhat lacking in certain special features are likely to learn a lot from giving CoolNovo a trial run. Developers of this app have succeeded in creating an interesting alternative to Chrome, and they have make continuous improvements on the app. Recently, developers corrected the irritating bug in the app that made it so the app froze when users switched between tabs.
