    "Good n' Fast"

    March 3, 2010  |   By warlover2

    Pros

    THE fastest browser I have ever used even with Flash, Javascript, and page colors enabled which normally slows down the average browser. User Agent shows up as Safari, not Chrome or Dragon(good stealth!).

    Cons

    No extensions to further security. Chrome has built-in Javascript blocking and pop-up blocker. Extensions for ad blocking, better cleaning(Flash cookies, Silverlight cookies,etc.) are at the site. Dragon clears cookies and history. Not as secure.

    Summary

    Comodo's claims of higher security cannot be proven due to a lack of features in Dragon. Chrome has features like pop-up blocker, Javascript blocker, and more extensive cookie management WITHOUT add-ons/extensions. Dragon is the fastest, even faster than Chrome but it is NOT safer until it can block scripts and pop-ups. I like the name "Dragon" and I like the surfing speed even more but the security is hype, at least for now. Comodo did state that they will upgrade to a "Chromium 4" version near March, 2010 but they just upgraded from 1.0.0.5 to 1.0.0.9 and still no add-ons/extensions. If they are going to prove their "higher security", they had better do it quickly. There is always the real Chrome(ium), Flock, Kmeleon, or Firefox(my favorite). If Comodo does get these options available, I will happily use Dragon(Holy Cow, it's fast!) but until then, I need more security.

    SHAME ON YOU COMODO!!! In the EULA it states "information may be used for purposes other than the services". Two, and here is the REAL truth about Comodo: "you will be issued a random generated user ID." Comodo DID get rid of Google's ID but they simply REPLACED IT WITH THEIR OWN. Proof positive: ANYTHING FROM GOOGLE OR ANYTHING SIMILAR... IS...SPYWARE!
