MGTEK Browser Help is a web-browser based help system that delivers online help across the Internet and Intranets, as well as online help for viewing on a local computer. MGTEK Browser Help was designed to present the user with an interface similar to Microsoft HTML Help; however, it was written to be platform-independent, and therefore will work with any popular web-browser on any popular operating system, such as Microsoft Internet Explorer on Microsoft Windows or Firefox on Linux.

When MGTEK Browser Help is used with an Internet or Intranet web-server, one of the big advantages is that you can provide your customers with an always up-to-date help document that you can maintain just like any other Internet page.

Other than a Portable Document Format (PDF) file, customers do not have to download the entire help file, which may result in significant time-saving when viewed over a slow Internet connection. Through the use of advanced chunking technologies, MGTEK Browser Help can deliver huge help systems with thousands of topics, even when viewed over a low-bandwidth Internet connection.
