Project Maelstrom Comments

Currently it's just Google Chrome with a new icon and a new name.

Comment by Tiamarth
about Project Maelstrom and Vivaldi Browser, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome Apr 2015

Sure, I respect BitTorrent's goal, but so far they've basically only renamed Google Chrome. There's no reason to use Maelstrom short of loyalty to BitTorrent and/or loyalty to what they stand for. I'd suggest that, until there's something functionally different between Chrome and Maelstrom, that you stick with Google Chrome. Or, if you want to use another browser that openly stands "for the people" and whose developers try to listen to their users, try Mozilla Firefox or Vivaldi.
