Editors' Review

Chrome-based Coowon Browser has features designed specifically for online gamers, including game tools, controller keyboard settings, a boss key, and the ability to adjust page running speed, individually. While it's generally up to Chrome's standards, it's not as smooth or reliable as some other Chromium-based browsers we've tried, and it's got a few bugs, too.

Coowon Browser installs and sets up like other Chrome-based browsers, with the option to set it as the default and import settings from other browsers. The most notable difference from Chrome is Coowon's Game Tools switch on the left end of the toolbar and its suite of apps on the right: a keyboard simulating tool for game controllers, a button for opening new multi-login tabs, a browser window boss key, and a page speed tool with a note that it didn't work with every online game and might cause problems. The boss key (actually a hot key combo) didn't work, at first, but did when we relaunched Coowon Browser. The Game Tools sidebar mostly links to the Coowon AppCenter and forum.

Though Coowon Browser has some unique and intriguing features, it also proved a bit clunky and buggy in our system. Updates were particularly troublesome and our security software wouldn't load the program's Web page due to malware reports. A little tinkering seemed to sort out some of the issues, though we still couldn't access updates even after disabling security (a potentially foolish act that you should never try at home!) and running updates, manually. We also dismissed malware warnings to load Coowon's home page, which continuously attempted and failed to load Disqus. A visit to that program's site found no known issues related to the Chromium engine. Interestingly, our security tools also blocked Coowon's Web site in both Chrome and Firefox, yet the Disqus app loaded normally in both. Like some other Chrome-based browsers, Coowon Browser seems to prefer to be the only Chrome in town, or at least in our system. If its game-oriented features sound cool, try Coowon Browser for yourself.

"Another Crappy Browser!"

April 18, 2015  |  By galet09

 |  Version: Coowon Browser 1.6.6

Pros

Finished my game.

Cons

Another Chrome based (or so they said) browser which once again will not connect me to my gmail or yahoo email accounts.

Summary

Although I was able to complete a flash based game it was a bit touch and go there while I was playing. However the real disappointment once again with this chrome based browser is that it will not connect me to gmail or yahoo email. I am getting SSL encryption errors relating to invalid certificates. I don't know how to fix this and can find no help which tells you how to fix this or get around it. IMO if you cannot even connect with your two main emails what the hell use if a broswer? They say they stop you from connecting for your safety, yada yada yada. C'mon seriously? They need a fix for this problem and it's not just Coowon. It's other chomium based browsers. I should have known and not downloaded it because I HATE Chrome. It never works right for me. Now I got an email from a popular game site which says CHROME is doing away with java! So Chromers cannot play java based games anymore. Unbelievable. Me I don't care, cause I hate hate hate all Chromium based browsers. This one is useless and I will be sure NOT to download anymore of them.
