Thread: SRWare Iron vs Comodo Dragon

  1. #1

    Default SRWare Iron vs Comodo Dragon

    If you are not familiar with these applications, they are both privacy and security hardened versions of Chrome. Essentially all the performance with the Google privacy leech features stripped away.

    I've used SRWare Iron for quite a long time, but recently realized Comodo has released their own security hardened version of Chrome called Dragon. In this post I'll briefly list attributes important to me, and which browser has it (+ or -). I've been using Dragon for the last day or so familiarizing myself with its features.

    The Contenders:
    SRWare Iron: http://www.srware.net/en/software_sr...n_download.php
    Comodo Dragon: http://www.comodo.com/home/browsers-...rs/browser.php

    Source Code Available:
    SRWare Iron +
    Dragon -

    Does not report statistics or surfing data to Google:
    SRWare Iron +
    Dragon +

    Reliable Auto-Update:
    SRWare Iron - (No functional auto-update)
    Dragon +

    Never reports back site related metadata to mothership:
    SRWare Iron +
    Dragon - (Checks SSL Certificates against Comodo Cloud)

    Can sandbox java exploit without infection:
    SRWare Iron +
    Dragon +

    Incognito Mode:
    SRWare Iron + (Iron doesn't write anything to disk in Incognito mode)
    Dragon - (Dragon's mode works like regular chrome)

    Adblock Features:
    SRWare Iron ++ (Supports chromium adblock addon plus ini level blocking)
    Dragon + (Supports chromium adblock addon)

    In conclusion these are collectively 2 of the best browsers we have ever had available to us. However, for the moment Iron works better for my ultra-paranoid persona. If you want great security and aren't quite in the tinfoil hat crowd yet; Dragon is a very solid low maintenance choice.

    I thought I'd post this for anyone interested. Anyone else have thoughts on these two or browsers in general?

    Do these work like tor? or are they just local things? like not writing to the harddrive?

    The SRWare Iron has a usb-runnable form of their browser, so anything that gets saved is only on the usb-stick.

    So are they not anonymity? Or are they just super buffed up security browsers?

    Internet Anonymity has more to do with your ISP and Netstats than the browser itself. Unless one of them has a proxy built into it or something. But it appears to be a very secure internet browser that doesn't give any of your personal information away to data miners or the like.

    I might be switching to one of these if Opera doesn't release a better version soon. Their most recent release was fucking terribad.

    Can either run standalone (usb / no install) with flash support? I was trying it with firefox, but it takes a bit of work, which isn't something I want for a quick standalone browser.

    I still use firefox. I feel like I can tweak it enough for it to be good.

    When I tried the stand-alone of the SRWare Iron browser, it actually ran Youtube 1080p videos perfectly smooth in fullscreen, whereas my IE8 had choppy results.
