Next to useless, I'm afraid. No browser chrome, i.e. no way to go back or
forward. No links in text, which sort of defeats the whole purpose of having
a hyperlinked encyclopedia. Text window too small, can't resize it, can't
hide the images, can't scroll or enlarge the images... nah. Oh, and I
managed to have it crash in less than no time. :)

On the other hand: TreeBrowse (http://yoy.be/item.asp?i115) *is* a
wonderfully interesting way to browse through Wikipedia. Screenshot here:
