"decent browser"

April 15, 2014  |  By jlc420

 |  Version: CometBird 11.0

Pros

I have used this browser in the past. It is quite fast and reliable. Have never experienced any problems on Windows xp, vista, 7 or now 8/8.1

Cons

does not contain security features that you get with Comodo Dragon Or Comodo IceDragon.

Summary

Not sure what all the complaints about it crashing are. I have never ran into a problem like such. I am always looking for stable browsers with simple features and decent security. I recomend Comodo Dragon and IceDragon for it's superior security that all others lack.

"Just like Firefox, but faster"

October 08, 2013  |  By eatdrumz

 |  Version: CometBird 11.0

Pros

Firefox add ons work
Familiar with all commands, but faster than Firefox
Bookmarks transferred seamlessly
Light memory footprint
Video downloads Very quickly

Cons

Graphics take longer to load than Firefox....don't really care.

Summary

This great little browser is Firefox, about 4 years ago. It's very fast, extremely stable, loads, and downloads videos Very quickly. I haven't liked a browser so much since the old, "Netscape," days! Great job!

Updated on Oct 28, 2013

I've been using this for a few months now, and found a couple of weaknesses. It does not render graphics quickly, and from time to time while I'm typing, as I am typing this update, the lettering falls behind what I'm typing.
Now that might be my computer, BUT, I use Firefox, and Slimbrowser, and neither of them have this problem.
I still like the browser! It is fast, but it will need to improve in these areas to be as useful as it can be.
I will keep up with the updates. It's worth waiting for.

"Fast but SECURITY Concern"

April 09, 2013  |  By ComputerMania999

 |  Version: CometBird 11.0

Pros

Not only fast but loved the feature that it would open to the same pages where it was closed.

Cons

Crashes can slow your computer; nightmare to resolve but on the most part it is stable - just don't close it when it is opening a website. SECURITY ISSUE - see #5.

Summary

Loved Cometbird UNTIL a crash and found out a HUGE SECURITY concern. I could not restore a highly used website, kept on reloading so I wanted to back up my bookmarks and then wipe the program off and reinstall. That is when I found out: The download right from the cometbird.com website shows it is from "Shaunghai Comet Network Technology" - What does Shaunghai mean? "2.Coerce or trick (someone) into a position or into doing something." Herein is the secret, they shaunghai all your bookmarks, passwords and whatever you selected and it is saved on 'a remote server'. Who knows what security is there, and here all your personal and private passwords are gone from your control. And if you don't care about that, when you have happened what I had, then you have to remake ALL your bookmarks as in my case it keeps reloading, and reloading a very important webpage so it never gives me access. At least with Explorer I can go to my harddrive and retrieve or fix the issue.

Pros

this is a nice little browser, super lite and super fast....blows all other browsers away!! In a league of its own! puts chrome, firefox, IE to absolute shame!

Cons

Not a single one!

Summary

"It certainly isn't for me!"

December 25, 2012  |  By brakker1

 |  Version: CometBird 11.0

Pros

I didn't find anything exceptional with this browser. I "resembles" Firefox is about the best thing I can say about it.

Cons

Poor graphics. Could not transfer my bookmarks from Firefox. Installed unwanted (mal?)ware.

"INCREDIBLY FAST!!!"

August 01, 2012  |  By DaveH962

 |  Version: CometBird 11.0

Pros

wow, looks similar to google chrome, but WAY faster
It's loads way faster and does everything faster, my son has it on windows 7 pro and i with XP pro and it blows everything I have away, chrome, firefox, Opera, Pale Moon, IE, Avant, Dragon. I think that for the others Firefox 14 and Dragon are the best, Opera Portable works very well too, but it won't save to my pc for some reason.
Download it and put it too work

Cons

non so far

Summary

this is going to be my default browser from now on, not sure what the format it but it's awesome

"A pretty good browser"

March 22, 2012  |  By bldcc

 |  Version: CometBird 7.0.1

Pros

Like other Firefox-based browsers, it has the best kind of arrangement for tabs, running across the screen and having surplus tabs off screen rather than scrunching them up. Seems to run well with a significant number of tabs (around 30 now).

Cons

Don't like the way it handles bookmarks as much as Firefox. Doesn't have Google Toolbar. Seems to be using more memory per tab than Lunascape. Brings along with it a "plugin-container.exe" that is a memory hog.

Summary

Will be keeping it and am happy to have it as default for now.
