Tolkien-Movies.com gets full credit for this one, many thanks to them for hosting this! It has arrived, and to say that it’s rather nice would be an understatement… 🙂
Browse the Web in Style
We’ve been waiting for a long time and it’s finally arrived: the official Lord of the Rings Internet browser. Now you can surf to your favorite web sites in style, accompanied by the sights and sounds of Middle-earth!
The browser is delivered as a bonus in the recently-released DVD version of The Astronaut’s Wife. It’s also available for download on this site.
What immediately impressed me after using the browser was that it’s very functional, while at the same time being easy to use. It also presents a very beautiful browsing environment for any Tolkien fan. You’ll understand what I mean when you download the browser and use it for yourself.
Among other features, the browser provides quick access to the top movie sites on the web via built-in buttons, and yes, this site is in there too!
What I liked most about the browser was that it emulated all the functions of your standard Netscape or Microsoft browser, while providing links and information on the fantasy subjects that we’re all interested in.
Anyway, you’re probably itching to download the browser now. The installation file is 3.11MB, so you may have to wait a while if you’re on a slower connection, but it’s stand-alone so you’ll be able to open it right away.
A letter from J.R.R. Tolkien to illustrator Doris Sykes will be sold by Hermitage Fine Art Monaco for £15,000 ($25,0000).
