The Bat! browser allows you to view links and HTML content. The viewer supports HTML 4.0 and CSS v2.0 formatting, ignores scripts and executable code preventing viruses from launching. The Bat!'s internal HTML viewer blocks viruses that use the known HTML vulnerability of Microsoft Internet Explorer (such as IFRAME and Automatic Execution of Embedded MIME type).

All news are automatically collected, combined and displayed in a list, like regular messages. The Bat! offers support for CardDAV protocol. You can sync, add, edit or delete contacts with CardDAV servers including Google and iCloud.
