Comodo Dragon Internet Browser
A secure version of Chromium

The people at Comodo have released Comodo Dragon Internet Browser, which is supposed to be a secure version of Chromium.

[comodo.com...]
What's the difference between Google Chrome and Comodo Dragon?
The Dragon encompasses all of the best features of Chrome. It includes an important feature every user needs to use the Internet in total safety today. Strong security and privacy.

Well, it looks like Chrome to me...
If it really is more secure than Google's version I might use it more. Is there any more specific info about the differences?

There are other Chromium based browsers out there, and lots of other webkit based browsers - I have three installed, plus one using KHTML (from which webkit was forked).

Hi all,

Since this thread was started, I downloaded the program, ran it, tweaked it, and then started to compare against FF. I am surprised to say that I quite like it, I couldn't find a way to put my bookmarks in place of the tool bar (which I can in FF) but hey, nevermind.

I know as it is exactly the same as chrome, but for me this is more aesthetically pleasing, though I doubt I will consign FF to the recycle bin yet.

The main +point for me in a browser is full ability to customise every aspect of what I can see, chrome and it's like, so far as I can tell you can't.

Thanks for sharing though...

Cheers,
MRb

In my quest for a more secure/private Chromium browser I came across SRWare Iron. It's even more locked down than Comodo Dragon, and has most all of the mechanisms that report back to Google off by default or not included at all. I've been running it for a few days now and I like what I'm seeing.

Hi there Bill,

Cool! I will give it a go, thanks for flagging that for us all. Kinda funny now I have got about 10 different browsers for testing scripts, I even have Lynx - "the text browser" - good for structure testing.

Cheers,
MRb

I find there is always something to keep me on FF. At the moment its Tree Style Tabs.

My ideal browser would be Konqueror's UI and configurability, with Webkit merged back, and Firefox extensions. Surely that is not too much to ask? (OK, it probably is).

Incidentally, with Webkit browsers now so common, I cannot think of any other GUI software originally written for Linux/free Unix that has been as successful on Windows and Mac.

Hi there Graeme_p,

Yes I agree, I haven't come across anything with the same customizability & flexibility of FF yet. I am open minded for the future though.

I confess as I haven't and don't use linux, I tried but couldn't adjust so I cannot comment on FF in linux.

Here is to clutter free browsing!

Cheers,
MRb
