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.

"Doesn't work"

January 21, 2016  |  By gtitus09

2016-01-21 09:47:07  |  By gtitus09

 |  Version: Superbird 28.0.1500.71

Pros

Faster than most browsers

Cons

Will not take me to trusted sites because of certificate invalid errors

Summary

No matter what I clicked on for trusted sites such as yahoo, google, blogger etc. I kept getting certificate errors with no option built in to Superbird to proceed anyway. I could resolve this problem and so this just another piece of useless software which I uninstalled.

 |  Version: Superbird 28.0.1500.71

Pros

Yet I still wonder at the possibilities,speed and functionality that has this excellent web browser! I recommend it for use on older computers,I tried it on old Sempron 1.8, ram-512 mb-DDR1,VGA-FX5200 & despite this,surfing is still with great speed...Well done for Superbird-team which is based on Chrome. ..

Cons

None for now...

 |  Version: Superbird 28.0.1500.71

Pros

I test the browser with opera, chrome and firefox about the speed. Superbird beat them all (superbird > firefox >opera > google chrome)
Using NPAPI Flash Player (for firefox)

Cons

Ram usage higher than firefox but lower than two others.

Summary

If your Pc is slow, TRY THIS!

"So far so good (Version 41)"

May 31, 2015  |  By MAFinOKC

2015-05-31 10:01:42  |  By MAFinOKC

 |  Version: Superbird 28.0.1500.71

Pros

Chromium-based but claims to be secure from Google's prying eyes. Runs fast. Compatible with all Chromium extensions.

Cons

Pages don't always display properly (look crowded). Some websites read it as an outdated version of Chromium.

Summary

I've been trying out this browser on Ubuntu so I decided to give it a try in Windows 8.1. The other "secure" Chrome/Chromium-based browsers are White Hat Aviator, which is touted as the most secure browser of them all without exception. It worked well until the other day when it started crashing so I uninstalled it to give the computer an Aviator "holiday." The other one is Chromodo from Comodo. That one sets the home page to Yahoo and it can't be changed to anything else no matter what I try. I can live with Yahoo as a home page but it means I'm not trying any other "free" programs from Comodo.

 |  Version: Superbird 28.0.1500.71

Pros

Extremely light on CPU.
Faster than any browser that I have ever used, even Maxthon Cloud Browser.

Can't even tell that it isn't Google Chrome.

Cons

None, so far.

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."

 |  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.
