Yes, that was my point, MSIE based and no menus, only some items on the
File menu and a typical Help menu.
I just successfully used it for online banking, however and SSL symbol
appeared to the lower right corner of the browser window.
The symbol text was localized, i.e. it comes from MSIE DLL's.

looks like it uses some wininet.dll calls to clear the cache

WININET.DeleteUrlCacheEntry
WININET.FindCloseUrlCache
WININET.FindFirstUrlCacheEntryA
WININET.FindFirstUrlCacheEntryA

but leaves the last visited url in "E:\Documents and
Settings\-username-\LocalSettings\Temporary Internet
Files\Content.IE5\index.dat"

However cache misses, redirected urls and urls that are clicked through
persist.
