    "It crashes a lot"

    November 14, 2013   |   By ajw11764

    Version: BlackHawk Web Browser 1.0.505

    Pros

    It is fast, I have to give it that

    Cons

    It is slow at load pages with a lot of graphics and it crashes a lot before it fully loads a web page.

    Summary

    My other computer died so I dug out my old computer that was running on windows 98. I downloaded Blackhawk for the speed as soon as I get a new computer, I won't be using the Blackhawk browser.

    "What's the point?"

    June 06, 2013   |   By DarkSwanKnight

    Version: BlackHawk Web Browser 2.0.305

    Pros

    None that I can think of.

    Cons

    It's just a cheap knock-off from Chrome.

    Summary

    A browser called "BlackHawk" and yet its logo is of a Bald Eagle? That's just plain dumb.

    Stick with Chrome and if you want alternative, either use Dragon or Iron. Anything else is a waste of time.

    "Good browser!"

    April 14, 2013   |   By MartinJackman

    Version: BlackHawk Web Browser 2.0.305

    Pros

    Fast
    Stable
    Light-ish
    Free

    Cons

    Updates?
    Nothing else so far but see below.

    Summary

    Having tried, and gotten tired of, the big browsers I decided to test some of the more obscure ones. About 20 of them in all. SlimBrowser was promising but couldn't open gmail/ymail. It juddered and stalled a few times - enough for me to stop using it. Some browsers are worth installing just to give your friends a laugh at parties (see "Laser Web Browser").
    I finally got around to BlackHawk and so far it's been worth it. I haven't loaded it up with extensions or plug-ins (just adblockplus) and it hasn't crashed, frozen or displayed any bothersome idiosyncrasies. It does however launch blackhawk.exe every time you open a new tab and CPU usage tops 52% sometimes.
    A good test for me is to print from a web page so I printed off some boarding passes and it worked brilliantly.
    BlackHawk has become a very faithful and reliable friend. I use it for heavy browsing and just about everything now. For alternatives I use Homepage5, Midori and Fast Web X2 which are way lighter with reduced functionality. Midori is promising but it decides to take a holiday occasionally.

    "BlackHawk is what Chrome wished it were"

    October 03, 2012   |   By Green_Star1

    Version: BlackHawk Web Browser 2.0.305

    Pros

    Is FREE
    Is Fastest of the three Browsers on my computer
    It is Stable, has not crashed even once
    It retains it's settings
    Does not appear to hog resources

    Cons

    could use some better addons

    Summary

    If there was just one or two of my favorite addons for it then BlackHawk would be my default browser over Firefox. It is faster and more stable than FireFox.
    And where it kinda looks like Chrome, That is as far as it goes. This is a real serious web browser, Where Chrome is a very bad joke.

    "Was my favorite browser !"

    June 30, 2012   |   By desertdan1

    Version: BlackHawk Web Browser 2.0.205

    Pros

    If it works it has them all beat!

    Cons

    After recent up date Blackhawk went where no bird should go !!! I have run this for a year and no problems. But the other day they came out with a up-date and that was that, slow loading / freezing up/ warning window "BlackHawk needs to shut down" ????

    Summary

    So I tried uninstalling and re-installing twice didn't help? So I removed it and put on WRWares Iron browser also a chrome based browser and it works like a champ? I will keep trying BlackHawk it is or was my favorite!

    "BH 2.0 is a very good browser."

    April 29, 2012   |   By GCG1000

    Version: BlackHawk Web Browser 2.0.195

    Pros

    Excellent GUI
    Compatible with most Chrome extensions
    Super fast
    Once you clean out it's prepackaged Chrome extension bloat it becomes a lean & mean browsing machine.
    Very stable & Solid app.

    Cons

    None to report at this time.

    Summary

    It's FREE so give it a try! The folks at NetGate have created one very fine Chrome-based browser!

    Updated on May 5, 2012

    Using BH as my default with no complaints.

    "Nice alternative to Chrome."

    December 13, 2011   |   By GCG1000

    Version: BlackHawk Web Browser 1.0.705

    Pros

    Fast and stable. Handles most Chrome extensions well, at least the ones I use. Nice clean GUI. With LastPass, a very secure browser.

    Cons

    None found yet.

    Summary

    Give BH a try!

    Updated on Dec 16, 2011

    Currently testing BH as my default browser. No major issues. Works well.

    Updated on Jan 13, 2012

    Appears to work w/o any flaws.

    "Leaves a lot to be desired."

    July 15, 2011   |   By pickycustomer

    Version: BlackHawk Web Browser 1.0.305

    Pros

    Very fast install.

    Cons

    Way too many!

    Summary

    Easy to download and install. After that it all goes downhill. When I went to import settings from Firefox the only option was IE, Firefox was not an option. Help section was no help. Add-ons were few. Not sure if this is a "release candidate" or still in beta. Until NetGate improves Blackhawk (maybe by version 5.0) I'll stick with Firefox. Looks like a cross between Chrome and Firefox but caters to MicroSoft. Firefox here I come!

    "It's a Chrome clone"

    July 14, 2011   |   By chingonkid

    Version: BlackHawk Web Browser 1.0.305

    Pros

    The speed and simplicity of Chrome

    Cons

    Not that original

    Summary

    It's just like Chrome but with a black skin, I can't tell what bloatware they supposedly got rid off.
