  • Iridium

    There are many browsers out there. To our belief, Chrome is fast, stable, and user-friendly, but does not meet many organizations’ demands for security. Since the tight integration with its inventor (Google) makes many things easier, it does not comply to restrictive data environments. Iridium is not another new browser from scratch. It takes the Chromium code base, which is also used for the official Chrome browser, and enhances its security and sets certain policies by default.

    • Iridium is a project that takes the Chromium code and removes from it all the bullsh*t that still phones home to Google. The result is a light, open-source, Chrome-compatible browser that doesn't attack your privacy. Nice. JohnFastmanJan 2017 • 2 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree

  • GNU IceCat

    Gnuzilla is the GNU version of the Mozilla suite, and GNU IceCat is the GNU version of the Mozilla Firefox browser. Its main advantage is an ethical one: it is entirely free software. While the principal source code from the Mozilla project is free software, the distribution contains various problematic files, the EULA they require for use of their binaries is troublesome, and they distribute and recommend non-free software as plug-ins.

  • SRWare Iron

    SRWare Iron, or simply Iron, is a fork of the free and open-source web browser Chromium , of which Google Chrome is a fork of. Iron primarily aims to eliminate usage tracking and other privacy violating functionality that Chrome includes. SRware bundles a simplistic hosts-based BLOCKer. You can also install Chrome extensions and themes on Iron.

    • SRWare Iron is closed source, offers nothing above tweaking Chrome settings and has [other question marks](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SRWare_Iron#Criticism) hanging over it. If you want a de-Googled Chrome, see Iridium or Brave; they are open source and therefore more trustworthy. JohnFastmanApr 2018 Disagree   Agree
