    "Google Chrome Alternative w/o Privacy Concerns (MyFav)"

    August 31, 2011  |   By rblake7

    Version: SRWare Iron 13.0.800

    Pros

    * Fast & Responsive
    * Compatible
    * No privacy concerns
    * Works when other browsers do not
    * Free
    * Updated regularly (as new Chromium code is released)
    * Handles memory allocation well (runs multi-processes for tabs)
    * Malware deterrent*

    Cons

    * Wish favorites were handled differently
    * Once in a while will not render a page correctly (and you have to use IE...but this is becoming more and more rare!)

    Summary

    This is by far my favorite browser. As an IT professional, I want something that works and works well. SRWare Iron does just that without having to be concerned about privacy issues. When I worked for a public school system, this browser outperformed IE & Firefox on page loads when working with the Student Information System. Faster page loads means more productivity...and more productivity means more work in less time...something I really needed at that job (there wasn't enough time in a day to get it all done).

    * Also, since it does not use ActiveX, it's not as subject to being hacked from malicious websites (much like Google Chrome). However, it still *could* be, but at least they are rather quick with updates. So, while it may not exactly "deter" viruses and malware, it does a rather noble job of warning you and helping (along with adequate anti-virus) prevent you, or maybe even your grandmother who keeps getting infected with IE, from getting infected.

    Bottom line, it's an excellent fast browser that will get the job done effectively and efficiently.

    Version: SRWare Iron 13.0.800

    Pros

    Everything its just like Google Chrome 13 but no one is collecting everything I do! Awesome!

    Cons

    None very nice browser!

    Summary

    Well... I use to love Google Chrome but after the news on how people have been able to hack Google I do not feel my private information is on good hands any more. So until either Google stop collecting and snooping into my browsing, email, etc or they get better at protecting that information from hackers I don't think I will ever go back to them. Same goes for IE9 and Firefox junk quick release of half baked browsers with holes to patch. Until them I will stay faithful to Opera and Iron browser. Plus I love Ironman too! lol jk

    "Ohhh Yeah.....This is a SWEET one!"

    Version: SRWare Iron 13.0.800

    Pros

    Okay where do I begin....let see as private as Opera, looks clean like Chrome, run faster then Firefox and it safer and more secure than IE9 need I saw more?

    Cons

    None that I can even imagine!

    Summary

    Well after learning about Google and Firefox mining my personal information I do not like those two anymore. Use to be a fan of Firefox until they begun releasing junk and begun intruding upon my privacy like Chrome. I loved Chrome until they got hacked and again I learned they were invading my privacy. So now I got this baby and Opera both my favorite. I wish there was a 10 star rating for this chuck of heaven!

    "No messing with privacy=A++"

    August 10, 2011  |   By d7knight

    Version: SRWare Iron 13.0.800

    Pros

    Fast. No privacy issues vs. *ahem* the other one. :D Keeps a pretty good pace of releases. No tracking. :)

    Cons

    None really, especially if you want a "top of line" browser based on WebKit and have good privacy.

    Summary

    If you want a fast browser based on Webkit, with privacy and access to Google Application store. Get it.
