    "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 8, 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 9, 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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    "INCREDIBLY FAST!!!"

    August 1, 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.
