Comodo Dragon Internet Browser Reviews

about Comodo Dragon Internet Browser · · Helpful Not helpful 3 Helpful Report as spam

This browser is all I use. I installed it first years ago. But got to use it full-time two weeks ago, instead of the bloatwared ram-leaking Firefox. As for that red warning and the article it points to, both of them are laughable to me. I see through it, other Chromium based alternatives take from google and their Chrome browser. Dragon being a most popular alternative, they have to defend themselves even if by spreading rumours. You can search the list of bugs and glitches in Chrome. It's more than what they are using for their feminine shaming tactics. If I have to choose whose browser to use, I will choose anything but Google, period.

Comodo Dragon vs Chromodo

After testing Dragon for a while, I realize why Comodo keeps Chromodo at the same time. Dragon might be a later version, but I had quite some bugs, including one that would make my screen go crazy and make me unable see what it shows. Thankfully I have a dual screen setup, so I could restart the pc from the other side. Closing Dragon 50% of the time made the screen return to normal. I am not saying that it is broken because of something liek that, but it definitely is buggy. Chromodo is now installed and works just fine.

I just thought I would throw this here. It is not something that important, but Comodo Dragon seems to be always higher version than Chromodo. I kept wondering why they are keeping both of them and I thought since Chromodo comes with Comodo Interest Security, it will be the latest version. It seems I was wrong though.

If anything I prefer Dragon, not only because its a closer version to the latest Chrome release, but also because CCleaner sees it as Chrome. With Chromodo, the cache files would go up to huge size and CCleaner would not see it to clean the files, ending up at a point wit ha 8GB cache folder. Minor in a way, but just another reason for me to choose Dragon.


It works without a single break down for me. I don't know how that's possible, but it does.

By now Chromodo has been discontinued, thus Dragon got all effort from Comodo. Current Dragon version is nothing like the one before 2 years.

My current go-to browser on the Windows platform

about Comodo Dragon Internet Browser · · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

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.

Comodo Dragon Internet Browser is not secure: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2016/02/02/google_disses_chromodo/

after reading this article, it is kinda irony that comodo dragon should be offering greater level of privacy than google chrome is but in the end they are the one who violate the privacy itself too

If you've got Comodo's browser installed on your machine, get rid of it !
