    "Google Chrome with better security"

    May 8, 2011  |   By jtek65

    Version: Comodo Dragon 10.0.0.2

    Pros

    It is from Comodo, so you know browser security is foremost on their minds. I found it to function as well as and sometimes better than Chrome. Almost all extensions work as do the themes.

    Cons

    Like Chrome, it can take a huge amount of resources as each tab runs as a separate process.

    Summary

    Of all the Chrome alternatives, Comodo Dragon is your best choice. It is Chrome with enhanced browser security. What makes Chrome a fantastic browser is that every tab runs as its own process so if a tab crashes, it does not kill the entire browser. It does require a lot of memory, though, so you do not impede overall system performance.
    One thing I would recommend is to NOT use the Comodo DNS servers. This is a question at the end of the installation process and agreeing to use them will cause problems with some web sites and connecting to some wireless access points (e.g. open such as public and school). It does provide an extra layer of security and I would recommend trying it with this option enabled if higher security is a concern. If your web sites load - great. If they do not, uninstall and reinstall not using this option and you will be good to go.

    "This browser can block websites-"

    April 30, 2011  |   By andreaborman

    Version: Comodo Dragon 10.0.0.2

    Pros

    It is fast and Google Chrome add ons work with this browser.

    Cons

    This is a security browser so it can block genuine websites on your computer. So you cannot access the sites you want even if you open up another browser, Firefox or Safefox. Which is a big problem. So this is why I unininstalled this browser.

    Summary

    Comodo Dragon is as fast as Google Chrome but the problem is that it blocked access to some of the websites I normally visit.In some sites like Facebook it gives you a warning telling you it is not safe when you try to log into Facebook. But on others it blocks the website and I tried to get onto the site and I just could not. And when I tried my other web browser it did the same thing. The site was completely blocked. So I uninstalled this browser for that reason. And now my computer is back to normal and I can now visit the sites I WANT TO. And the websites that were blocked by Comodo Dragon WERE ordinary websites where I download computer software from regularly. I think it is all right for a web browser to warn you of a website. But we are adults and it is our computer. So we decide what website to visit not the browser! So any browser that blocks a site with no way to override it,is not worth having. So unless you are paranoid and one of those silly people who thinks that every website has a computer virus,when it does not. Forget this browser and stick to Google Chrome or Chromium. And you won't have any problems. So forget this browser it is too much of a headache. Andrea Borman.

    "This is one chrome browser that is a real alternative-"

    April 21, 2011  |   By andreaborman

    Version: Comodo Dragon 4.1.1.12

    Pros

    It has extra security features that Google Chrome does not have and is based on a stable build of Chromium. unlike some nightly builds of Chromium which are not stable.

    Cons

    None except that the latest version Comodo dragon 10 is not featued here yet on this site.

    Summary

    There have been many clones of Google Chrome and Chromium. And some like Flock 3 and Rock Melt are poor imitations of it. But not this browser.Comoda Dragon is based on Google Chrome but has additional security features that Google Chrome does not have,like a pop up blocker. And it also warns you of dodgy websites,where Google Chrome does not. And you can enable or disable these security features. I have been looking for alternative Chrome browsers lately. Because the latest versions of Chromium do not play videos and I have the same problem with Google Chrome Canary Build. So I am now using Google Chrome because of this issue. But Google Chrome being made up of more stable Chrome builds is playing videos okay. I tested this feature out in Comodo Dragon and there is no problem with playing videos in this browser either. As Comodo Dragon is based on the stable builds of Google Chrome.Comodo Dragon is actually faster and more advanced than Chromium. So if I was not already using Google Chrome, I would be happy to use this as an alternative to it.So if you are looking for a change or a Google Chrome alternative. Then this browser Comodo Dragon is a good choice.Andrea Borman.

    Well,I have been using Comodo Dragon for a day now and yes it is a winner and fast than Google Chrome.And it's security feature of warning you of a risky website BEFORE you visit it.So that you can make up your mind if or not to visit it. Is a very useful feature not found in Google Chrome. Comodo Dragon can be used on it's own but if you still want to keep Google Chrome and Chromium browsers on your computer. Then ,yes,YOU CAN install and run Comodo Dragon alongside Google Chrome and Chromium browsers. They do not clash with one another as Comodo Dragon is stored on separate files from Chromium. So yes,this browser is a real alternative to Google Chrome or if you want an extra chrome browser in addition to Google Chrome on your computer.

    Updated on Apr 30, 2011

    I tried to get onto a website that I use regular for looking at new software. But unfortunently Comodo Dragon would not let me on the site. And when I tried one of my other web browsers I found out that Dragon had changed the settings on all of my other web browsers,so I could not visit the website I wanted at all. So I had no choice but to uninstall Compdo Dragon and re install Google Chrome instead. And after I uninstalled Comodo Dragon everything was back to the way it was before I installed Comodo Dragon.And I was able to visit the website I wanted to go on. which sugests that Comodo dragon does change the settings on your computer and although it does block some websites. And I could not find a way to override the setting. So if you want to have the choice to visit the sites YOU want. Comodo dragon is not suitable and you are better off with Google Chrome. Andrea Borman.

    "Excellent Chromium-based Browser"

    November 30, 2010  |   By shaunk37

    Version: Comodo Dragon 4.1.1.12

    Pros

    Well, it's basically everything Google Chrome is - really fast on startups (both cold and warm), and also on performance, and highly customizable. Additionally, it is supposed to have added security from Comodo (though no specifics were given).

    Cons

    Well, there's not much one can really complain about Chrome. Too good? :)

    Summary

    Well, it's Google Chrome but re-labeled under security giant Comodo. It supposedly boasted enhanced security but Comodo didn't give any specifics nor do they have additional options on the browser other than those given on Chrome. However, it's an excellent choice for speed and performance but honestly... what's the difference with Chrome?

    "Secure and very fast"

    October 9, 2010  |   By blue23

    Version: Comodo Dragon 4.1.1.12

    Pros

    Security and speed

    Cons

    The Bookmarks Bar.

    Summary

    Bookmarks: like Google Chrome, it is awkward to access bookmarks by having the Other Bookmarks button on the right side (the wrong side) of the Bookmarks Bar. You have to create your own Bookmarks folder where it should be, on the left side.
