Thanks of you


My current go-to browser on the Windows platform

about Comodo Dragon Internet Browser · ·

This has replaced Opera as my main browser when using Windows. One of my favorite features is the built-in 'Force HTTPS' option which appears as a little lock icon in the right of the Omnibox.

I also like to enhance it with a few extensions; FlashControl eliminates all the annoying prompts to install Flash, SPDY Indicator show when the browser is connected to a web server which support the SPDY protocol and Proxy SwitchySharp which allows me to pipe all my DuckDuckGo search queries over Tor to their 3g2upl4pq6kufc4m.onion site.

The installed size of the application is ~70MB as compared to a bloated Chrome install which is typically 400MB+.

Areas where Dragon could use improvement is more timely updates (currently based on Chromium v33 as of this review) and better default browser privacy settings such as those adopted by Chromium based WhiteHat Aviator. The built-in media downloader extension doesn't work very well with youtube in my experience, perhaps this needs to updated as well.

You can use this browser hardening guide to do it yourself in the meantime.


Speedy and with less bloat than chrome.

PROS: Fast and snappy even with eight plug-ins.

CONS: Windows only version.

It still has all the default settings as Chrome.

OVERALL: I'm loving using Comodo Dragon and would recommend to all Chrome users who want a faster less bloated version of Chrome.

Fast and Secure

Much faster than Firefox (though I still love it), and has many built-in security features. While you may not need them, it helps to alleviate some fears of browsing online. Since it's based on Chromium, you can sign into your Google Account, which will not only enable Sync (which you can disable, but why would you want to), but will also allow you to automatically sign into any site that uses Google Sign-in. Again, you can disable it, but I find it very handy.
