MenuBox is a web browser developed by Cloanto Corporation. It is based on the Trident layout engine, to which it adds an extended document object model (DOM) and event intercepts to achieve special functionality for use in contexts such as AutoRun projects, wrapping of web-based services, chromeless applications and kiosk mode operation.
A MenuBox project consists of a single, redistributable binary file (MenuBox.exe, may also be renamed), one configuration file (in INI format, may be merged into Autorun.inf) and the actual content files (HTML, scripts, images, etc.)
The MenuBox software first launched in 1997. HTML support was introduced in version 2.0, which was released on September 22, 2002. As of October 10, 2009, MenuBox was still listed as the only third-party browser to have passed formal "Certified for Windows Vista" testing.
