Comodo Dragon touts itself as a Chrome-based browser with additional security. One of the great things about open-source software is that absolutely anyone can improve upon an existing program if they have a good idea and enough know-how to do it. One example of this is Comodo Dragon, which security-minded programmers made as a response to their distaste for Google Chrome’s lack of security.
If you are already familiar with Chrome, you will have no problem using Comodo Dragon. The actual appearance of Comodo Dragon is reminiscent of Chrome, even with the same themes available. This makes for a very attractive and familiar browser experience. But even if you are new, it really will not take very long to get used to it all. So if visually Comodo Dragon is quite similar to Chrome, what makes it that different then? The answer is quick and easy: its additional security features.
The problem is, however, that what those security features are and how they are implemented are not really explained by the developers of Comodo Dragon. Even the program’s website does not adequately explain it, and just says that users need more privacy and security with no additional comments on the subject. If you compare the two browsers side by side, there are differences, but you would need a decent amount of knowledge about internet browsers to even understand what the differences are in more practical terms.
Overall, Comodo Dragon is a useful and comfortable internet browser, and with its claims of ‘Superior Security and Privacy’ it does seem like a desirable tool to use.
The features of Comodo Dragon include:
- Offers privacy enhancements that surpass current Chromium technology
- Offers domain validation technology that can identify and segregate superior SSL certificates from inferior ones
- Stops cookies and other web spies
- Prevents all browser download tracking to ensure your privacy
