I am curious about the Red Core browser, out of China. I'm on Ubuntu 16.04 and cannot seem to find an appropriate version to try.

Redcore seems to be based on Chromium, Google's open source version. It looks like the only version available on their site is for Win XP. Has anyone tried this browser? I don't want to download the whole Red Core linux distribution.

[browser.redcore.cn...]

I have tried the QQ Browser on Android, but then read about numerous security leaks and vulnerabilities.

If you're interested in browsing from your server, browsers are probably not the best choice as they rely on user side OSs like Windows, Mac, iOS or Android.

For web servers, it's much easier to use any of the dozens of HTTP Clients.

I haven't tried it out myself. Why not just put the OS into a virtual machine to try it out? However I probably wouldn't suggest putting that onto your primary machine. VM sandbox escapes are very possible these days.

I did not want to install their OS image. I just wanted to try their browser. I guess no one has tried this yet.
