Editors' Review

SRWare Iron heavily mimics Google's Chrome browser, incorporating access to developer tools, various settings to change appearance and privacy settings, as well as the ability to add extensions. In contrast to Chrome, Iron is more privacy minded.

Pros

Chrome-style settings: You'll find SRWare Iron's settings to be nearly identical to Chrome in both appearance and options. From the settings page, we were able to change the browser's theme, and select and manage our search engine. Hitting F12 brought up the developer tools.

Import bookmarks: We have a lot of bookmarks saved to our default browser, but SRWare Iron let us quickly import them with just a few clicks. We were able to just as easily export our bookmarks to other browsers.

Quick page loads: While browsing, our pages seemed to load quickly. However, page loads didn't really seem to differ that much from Chrome and other browsers we've tested.

Cons

Plug-ins site seems a bit iffy: If you want to browse for more extensions, a link takes you to a generic Chrome extensions page that didn't look trustworthy. We warily clicked the link for our language, and it took us to a page that listed Chrome extensions such as PanicButton and Angry Birds. However, we felt a need to immediately run our AV software after visiting the site.

Bottom Line

We don't have a lot of complaints about SRWare Iron, but we also don't have a lot of compliments. If you're concerned with Google's stance on browser privacy, or are just looking for a different browser, Iron is a worthy choice.
