    "The underdog"

    December 10, 2013  |   By dwensch

    Version: CoolNovo 2.0.9.11

    Pros

    Ultra fast
    Stable
    Compatible with Chrome extensions
    Double click tabs to close
    Auto hide bookmarksbar
    Mouse gestures
    Will auto add custom search engine
    Switch engine from Chrome to Internet Explorer

    Cons

    Not known with the public

    Summary

    I just discovered this browser and after a few days of testing i can say this is my new default browser. It's faster & more stable than Chrome. You're personal extensions & bookmarks from Chrome are compatible with CoolNovo and you can change so much things to customize the browser like;
    Double click tabs to close
    Auto hide bookmarksbar
    Mouse gestures
    Will auto add custom search engine
    Switch engine from Chrome to Internet Explorer
    ... and more.. just test it out

    "V 2.0.9.11 : best and most compatible one with WIN 8 !"

    July 26, 2013  |   By mauron76

    Version: CoolNovo 2.0.9.11

    Pros

    Everything. Especially the fact that you can decide that all your browser history will be deleted each time you quit CoolNovo (an unexisting great feature on Chrome...). Besides, it seems that CoolNovo much better blocks ads with Adblock Plus. And it is faster and more secure than Chrome I think.

    Cons

    Nothing regarding the browser itself. But I find CoolNovo's official website pretty poor! It clearly has a lack of information regarding updates and reports. Besides, their forum seems never updated! Two weeks ago I posted a question on CoolNovo's forum I got a reply saying that a moderator will read my message before publishing it and... nothing! So, it seems that there is not enough staff at CoolNovo to maintain their forum and website unfortunately!

    Summary

    I used to use Chrome and then Comodo Dragon (also based on Chrome). But the latter has too many bugs especially with updates... So I turned back to Chrome. Then I had problems with Chrome under Windows 8 I was unable to resolve. So, I turned back to CoolNovo (former Chrome Plus) which improved a lot during this time... And I never had any problem of any kind with CoolNovo under Windows 8! So, I set it as my default browser and uninstalled Chrome for avoiding compatibility problems.

    "The best Chromium browser and far better than chrome!"

    May 8, 2012  |   By Seth222

    Version: CoolNovo 2.0.2.26

    Pros

    boss key
    mouse gesture
    good interface
    nice privacy options
    screenshots
    bottom toolbar lets you do neat stuff

    Cons

    like all chromium based browsers, it is not that fast.

    Summary

    This is a non overwhelming, yet feature filled browser. Chrome is like a browser from the nineties in comparison. However, all chrome/chromium browsers are slooooooooow.

    "Best alternative to Google Chrome!"

    April 22, 2012  |   By mauron76

    Version: CoolNovo 2.0.2.26

    Pros

    Plenty : Adblock already included, new sidebar on the left (like on Firefox), automatic update, various interesting features not available on Chrome...

    Cons

    It can be buggy if you already install and use Google Chrome. Indeed, when synchronizing your both browsers Chrome and Cool Novo, I had a few annoying bugs. The latter mostly appeared on Cool Novo. To avoid them, I decided to choose between both browsers. And I chose to keep Chrome and uninstall Cool Novo. Since I did that I have no longer sync problems on Chrome... But this is only my choice. And I really recommend Cool Novo. It may even be the future of Chrome...

    "Just Google Chrome only bigger ?"

    February 22, 2012  |   By desertdan1

    Version: CoolNovo 2.0.1.40

    Pros

    What can you say? It is Google Chrome can't do any more or less.It is good....

    Cons

    Why bother? If you have Chrome now no reason to switch that's for sure. If you scrape the name off your "Mountain Dew", and rename it "Poo Dew" it's still "Mountain dew" On inside!

    Summary

    Its a clone good but still a clone just a little bigger ??

    "It's Great!"

    February 18, 2012  |   By mitchjmh

    Version: CoolNovo 2.0.0.9

    Pros

    It has some great customizing features and extras over and above what Chromium browsers usually offer.

    Cons

    Haven't noticed any faults or bugs yet but only been using it a couple of hours.

    Summary

    I have only used it a few hours and I already like it more than Chrome, Iron, and Comodo browsers. It has a feel to it that the other Chromium browsers don't (about the only way I could describe it is sort of the same feel I got from Firefox back in the day when it used to be the funnest one to use - late one's/early two's releases).
