Editors' Review

+

Popular security software developer Comodo has developed a Chrome remix said to have higher security features than its predecessors. Comodo Dragon is an aesthetically minimalist browser that is attractive, responsive, and secure.

Apart from the red hue, the Chromium-based browser's interface is identical to that of market contender Google Chrome. From the detachable tabs at the top of the screen to the bookmark-syncing option, it is impossible to instantly recognize where the "remix" takes place. The Help tab even redirects you to Google Chrome's Help page and the Extensions tab redirects you to Google as well. It also keeps Chrome's incognito mode option, where all browsing information and cookies are deleted following the user's Web session. Upon poking around the Options menu, there are a couple of visible differences: there are no location settings and Dragon does not present an option to send "usage statistics and crash reports to Google."

A browser developed by a company that is best known for its firewall software can leave people feeling more secure about their Internet usage. Comodo Dragon will pull up a bright-yellow caution message warning people that sending information may be unsafe when they are entering a Web site with an unstable security certificate. One such message pops up even when logging into large sites like Facebook. Also, Dragon does not send browsing information to a remote server.

Based on simple timer tests run on Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 3, the average cold start-up time was 4.53 seconds, warm start-up was 0.92s, and navigation time from nytimes.com to facebook.com was 0.87s. Comodo Dragon proves to have slightly faster page-loading speed than Google Chrome 5.0.375.70, which had results of 5.71s, 1.27s, and 1.23s, respectively. However, in Sunspider JavaScript benchmark testing, Comodo Dragon received an average score of 929.6 milliseconds, whereas Google got 734ms. Based on these results, Google may have faster JavaScript performance than Comodo.

Dragon is not only fast, but like Google Chrome, it is not strewn with numerous icons, leaving more room for Web viewing. For those who are extra cautious about their online security, or for those who are worried about Google's data-mining, this fast browser is a great choice.

"Great Browser"

November 15, 2011  |  By LindaLan

 |  Version: Comodo Dragon 1.0.0.9

Pros

Not sure if it is faster than Chrome or not - Guess it is "safer"

Cons

Print preview not available

Summary

Will be using Chrome more often as it does have "Print Preview" which in this "green" world can save a lot of paper. Hopefully it won't be long before Comodo has print preview available!!!

"Slightly faster than Chrome................"

May 22, 2010  |  By denigma78

 |  Version: Comodo Dragon 1.0.0.9

Pros

Benefits of Chrome such as tabbed browsing plus it doesn't record everything you are doing b/c it is not a Google product.

Cons

Still no good print preview feature like FF or IE, Chrome has no print preview feature as well.

Summary

this version added the ability to block third party cookies along w/ extension support. Soon as you download this download "adblock for chrome" ext from this website for even more faster web browsing

"Get this browser-it is FASTER than Google Chrome-"

May 15, 2010  |  By andreaborman

 |  Version: Comodo Dragon 1.0.0.9

Pros

Comodo Dragon runs on chrome and is a chrome browser like Google Chrome. In fact it looks like Google Chrome. The only difference is Google chrome has a blue top bar,Comodo Dragon's top bar or tab is grey.This browsers even faster than Google chrome.

Cons

Google Chrome is very fast,reliable but Comodo Dragon is believe it or not even faster,than Googles Chrome. Also C. Dragon gives you a warning about a dodgy site before you get there,so you can avoid that site if you want to.

Summary

Comodo Dragon is a chrome browser-Google Chrome is fast but C.Dragon is even faster.This browser can be used instead of G.Chrome or it can be used with it. Both G.chrome and C.dragon can live side by side each other as both are compatable. I highly recomend that you GET Comodo Dragon-you won't regret it.Andrea.

"Comodo Dragon 1.0.0.9"

May 05, 2010  |  By William_Berzoff

 |  Version: Comodo Dragon 1.0.0.9

Pros

I like "more secure" when surfing the internet, so I am going to try this one out.

Cons

If I find any serious cons worth mentioning I will add to this review.

Summary

Since the internet is full of dangers that can seriously affect your pc system and I wanted to try out Chromium anyway, I will try out this version with increased security from Comodo.
It's a freeware and if I will not encounter any advertising from Comodo to buy any of their other products I will be happy.
If I encounter advertising for their payed products I will instantly delete this browser.

"FAST, SAFE AND SECURE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

April 21, 2010  |  By tthompson1013

 |  Version: Comodo Dragon 1.0.0.9

Pros

It is fast and simple like Chrome, but the best feature is that it isn't under the thumb of Google! (or is it!)

Cons

The interface is bland and I would like a few more bells and whistles.

Summary

I feel secure using this browser! and I just can't believe its not more popular. I may make it my primary browser after some more testing. So far it hasn't crashed or let me visit any bad sites.

"Not the best browser, but still good."

April 06, 2010  |  By BreakGuy

 |  Version: Comodo Dragon 1.0.0.9

Pros

* Easy to navigate
* Can use Google Chrome themes
* Can use Google Chrome extensions
* Clean and nice looking

Cons

* Found it to be very hungry on the CPU

Summary

Good if you are concerned about security, but resources are chewed up very quickly and even more quickly if you have extensions added to it.
