Project “Ariadna”

Many users all over the world know that our firm has created the first universal Russian browser. Due to constant development of functional possibilities of global Internet the software market demands browsers with newer functions. Race of developments has begun and such firms as Netscape and Microsoft have played the leading role in this process. Everybody knows the results. In pursuit of domination on the market of Internet-technologies the leaders used “super-dumping” tactics: these companies are distributing Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer practically free.

In connection with the present situation on the market of universal browsers firm AMSD suspends its works on improvements of features of AMSD Ariadna browser (project Ariadna-2) and gives the opportunity to free download the latest version 1.3 from our server. In anticipation of your numerous questions we inform you at once that version 1.3 doesn’t support frames, animated Gif - files and JavaScript. JAVA is supported by installation of SUN JDK 1.02 on your computer and supported HTML version is 3.2.

At the same time AMSD continues to develop means, supporting different Internet-technologies and basing on our browser AMSD Ariadna. Among these are technologies concerning protection from unauthorized access, data filters protecting children from inappropriate for their age information (violence, pornography, narcotics etc.), improvements of methods and means for information search in Internet and others.

Simultaneously we are working on support of above-mentioned technologies on the base of Microsoft Internet Explorer. In other words AMDS didn’t stop its works in the field of creation means for support modern Internet-technologies. We have simply changed some priorities in our activity and as before hope that interested firms will see us among the developers and suppliers of this software class.
