SHAME on SRware for this FRAUD

There is nothing better or substantially different from chromium builds.

SRware site is loaded with 3rd party ads not blocked by "their" mind numbingly simplistic host block list that is invoked with the update checks.

I gave this project a second try and it still looks too shady/unclear for me. First and foremost, are its sources really can be found only on Rapidshare and their "Download permission denied by uploader" or I am missing something here? What kind of opensource is that?

Second, it rarely gets updated, but when it does, new versions can ship with odd bugs, a bugs that do not actually exist in Chrome. One of such was not working tooltips (a pieces of text that appear when you hover over a tab, a button, or an image (on a webpage) with filled 'title' attribute).

Third, when I tried to report that bug at the official forum, my post would never get approved.

I don't really like Chrome either, but I'd say avoid Iron anyway. Switch to Firefox -- which is (I guess) a real open source and, with version 27, just as fast as Chromium, -- or to whatever other browser.

No point in Iron since Chromium's out. A bit shady overall (source is STILL hosted on rapidshare)

Also, interesting read on Iron by one of the Chromium devs: http://neugierig.org/software/chromium/notes/2009/12/iron.html
