Editors' review

Superbird is a free browser that uses the open-source Chromium toolkit to emulate Google Chrome, while enhancing security and privacy. The result is a fast, lightweight browser that works well on the fly. Combined with a portable version that can be loaded from a USB drive, Superbird offers a solution to common issues many people have with Chrome browsing.

Installation of Superbird takes only a few seconds and it boots up from the desktop nearly as fast. Designed to look and feel like Chrome, it is immediately accessible. It has access to the same open-source Chromium plug-ins used by other Chrome-style browsers and better yet, it doesn't send any data to Google or other big corporations. This is in fact the biggest draw for Superbird, ensuring that no data is sent when you access a site, install an app, or have a problem. Because there is no adware, Superbird is free, and the performance of the app was comparable to Chrome in almost every test we ran, it is a good option for this.

If you are eager to replace your Chrome browser with one that looks and operates the same but without the unwanted data share that occurs between your computer and Google, look into Superbird. It is easy to use, free, and offers a very familiar, intuitive interface for quick browsing. It also runs much faster than most other alternative browsers and has no bloat to slow it down like some other Chromium-built options. It's a must download for privacy-minded users.

    "Best Browser Ever, Even Faster Than Google Chrome!"

    January 17, 2014   |   By Not-My-Problem

    Version: Superbird 28.0.1500.71

    Pros

    Extremely light on CPU.
    Faster than any browser that I have ever used, even Maxthon Cloud Browser.
    Compatible with every Google Chrome extension.
    Can't even tell that it isn't Google Chrome.

    Cons

    None, so far.

    Summary

    I like this browser. It isn't the huge disaster that Google Chrome has turned into. Good job, Superbird!

    "This is an amazing web browser Chromium based."

    October 08, 2013   |   By xtorman

    Version: Superbird 28.0.1500.71

    Pros

    Don't be track by google headquarters, company forced from time to time to REVEAL ALL your info and navigation to the government.

    FASTER FASTER FASTER. U will remind of the first time you opened Chrome.
    Forget about auto update, u can turn it off

    Cons

    Some unwanted extensions come with it. Just hit uninstall

    Summary

    Not a clone actually, Chromium is a OPEN SOURCE project that Google got his hands on and made it commercial (DOS and Microsoft rings a bell?). So this browser it's almost pure chromium, witch means u don't get the all corporate trash.

    You can and should try Comodo Dragon and Torch too, those are great chromium browse alternatives also, thought i fell SB it's the faster.
