Toolz Technology - A Brand New Way to Do the Net


VANCOUVER, BC -- 01/05/2005 -- The browser is a technology that will be obsolete ten years from now, or so says the Founder and CEO of Dash Tools, Inc.

Founded in early 2001, by 55 year old Vancouver lawyer, Vian Andrews, DashToolz has recently launched a line of graphical interfaces, called Toolz, that download to the desktop and offer an alternative to the browser as a way to access and use a wide variety of Internet technologies.

“The browser was invented to give early Internet users a way to display web pages built with rudimentary HTML code. It was a unique innovation when Clark and Andreessen released the Netscape Navigator a dozen or so years ago,” according to Andrews, “But, the browser is a horseless carriage compared to new interfaces like our Toolz. Within the next five to ten years the browser will be thought of as quaint and retrograde.”

The Toolz platform, which is built on Microsoft’s .Net technology, includes a stripped-down, skinned version of the IE browser so users can hyperlink around the World Wide Web with ease. But, it also incorporates, or will incorporate, a wide variety of other technologies including webmail, VoIP, media players, game technology, and other proprietary applications that Andrews, with an eye on the competition, refuses to discuss.

“Toolz Technology addresses the profoundly ambivalent feelings that ordinary Internet users have toward the Net. They love it because of its inherent powers, but they hate it because it has been invaded and abused by spammers, pornographers and, worse by far, mass marketers,” says Andrews. “Toolz technology is driven by a vision starkly at odds with conventional wisdom. Toolz technology will let users harness the power of the Internet, and exert maximum control over the flow of information to their desktop.”

DashToolz launched a beta version of Toolz in 2003, built primarily with Flash and Visual Basic. Over 120,000 people registered within a few weeks, but the Company quickly found out the platform was not stable enough to build a massive online community of Toolz users. So, the Company, which has all its programming done in Poland, went back to the lab, and rebuilt the platform from the ground up.

Toolz will be designed and built for a variety of user groups, and promoted from several websites. The Company has already released a “safe” Internet tool for kids 14 and under called the BongoTool at and will release Toolz for older students, seniors, sports enthusiasts and other groups in 2005. Its webmail system, the Dash Post Office, which is integrated into the Toolz platform, is also available FREE at

Andrews is predicting that the Company’s user base will grow from a standing start this January to over 10 million users within 3 years.
