Comodo Dragon Web Browser is a new Internet browser based on the same open source project as Google Chrome. The big difference between the two is that Comodo has a very high priority on user privacy and security, while Google Chrome is known to collect personal data and browsing habits.
Based on Chromium, Comodo Dragon has access to all of the latest developments that Google Chrome does and adds on to those steps forward by providing users with free access to Comodo Antivirus' online safety technology. The greater level of privacy and access to free anti-malware is definitely the biggest reason to choose Comodo over Chrome or even Firefox.
One interesting thing about using the Comodo Dragon Browser is the option to use Comodo's free DNS servers which help people escape tracking by their ISP or DNS hijacking. You may choose to user their DNS servers while browser in the installation menu or via configuration after the browser has been installed.
For users who still use Internet Explorer or Firefox, Chromium-based browsers like Comodo Dragon offer unbeatable browsing speed improvements and the very latest in support for the latest web technologies.
So if the creepy privacy policies of Google have had you worried or you just weren't interested in running a browser which offers little in protection against malware, Comodo Dragon is certainly a contender for a very safe and private browsing experience.Comodo Dragon Browser features and highlights:
