Editors' Review

+

Yandex.Browser is an alternative Web browser with a streamlined interface designed to make your browsing experience as quick and enjoyable as possible. You can import all of your settings from your previous default browser, and you'll be ready to start surfing the Web in no time.

Pros

Smartphone sync: If you have this app installed on your smartphone as well as on your Windows computer, you can take advantage of several nice syncing features. Of course, you'll have all of your bookmarks and history saved on both, but you can also make phone calls with just a click of your mouse. When the two devices are connected, clicking a phone number on your computer will initiate a call to that number on your smartphone.

Security: This browser has several nice built-in security features. For instance, it warns you when you visit potentially dangerous sites. It also scans all files you want to download for viruses, so you can avoid creating problems on your computer or other device.

Smartbox: The smartbox is a small, additional search box that you'll find in this browser. It's quite useful for getting answers to questions quickly, as well as bringing up hard facts and figures.

Cons

Links from Word: This app did not respond when it was set as the default browser, and we attempted to open a link contained in a Word document. Multiple attempts were unsuccessful, but once we changed the default browser back to Chrome, the link opened properly in that browser.

Bottom Line

Yandex.Browser is a smooth and fast alternative to the major browsers available today. It's free, and while we did discover one minor bug, this will probably not inconvenience most users much. If you're interested in improving your Web surfing experience, this is a good option to try.

"Great Browser"

July 23, 2015  |  By Artiom Jankovskij

 |  Version: Yandex.Browser 14.7

Pros

Fast, easy to use,minimalist.
Combines Opera Turbo and Chrome in 1 place.
Fair play from Yandex as it gives you choise on the main screen to choose search. In comparison, on mobile Google doesn't even let you change the default, even if customer wants.

Cons

Haven't found any problems yet.

Summary

Excellent browser to use. I suggest to give it a try and form your own opinion.

"Doesn't work with Netflix"

July 21, 2015  |  By dexteriot

 |  Version: Yandex.Browser 14.7

Pros

Free. Chrome based

Cons

Doesn't work with Netflix. Maybe it works in the US, but not in Canada. When you go to netlix com it supposed to redirect you to netflix com/ca. All browsers do that redirection i.e. firefox, chrome, opera etc, but not Yandex, and when you try to watch something it keeps saying Too many redirects, clear cookies otherwise its the problem with the server. I beg to differ because it is a problem with Yandex, all other browsers work just fine.

Also didn't like the fact that it automatically imported settings from Opera without asking.

Summary

useless for Netflix, so maybe also not good for other streaming services

"Happy I discovered it"

March 28, 2015

 |  Version: Yandex.Browser 14.7

Pros

I usually use Chrome, but recently installed Yandex (not the new alpha one, just the one called Yandex.Browser) and am really enjoying it. I am a sucker for crisp text rendering and Yandex is great in this respect. Way better than e.g. Firefox, which displays fonts with jagged edges.

Cons

none that I can think of

Summary

Highly recommended.
