Drawing its source code from Chromium, Comodo Dragon is a fast web browser that mostly puts emphasis security while surfing the Internet. It contains several handy extensions and shares most of its features with Chrome.
Quick setup with customizable settings
Installing the app shouldn't be a difficult task. It can be copied as a portable tool in order to run it on any machine directly from a pen drive.
Comodo offers to install Adobe Flash Player if it doesn't already exist on the PC, which it actually needs in order to display all content correctly. It also recommends the use of COMODO Secure DNS servers in order to improve security.
Familiar interface and options
The GUI is the same as in Chrome, and some of their features are shared as well. It is possible to browse multiple pages in multiple tabs, import bookmarks from other browsers and manage them easily, as well as log in with a Google account to synchronize data across all devices, to name but a few.
Security features and extensions
In addition, you can specify a master password to access all the other passwords saved within Comodo on websites, as well as enter sandbox mode to enhance security by navigating the web in a virtual environment cut off from the rest of the computer (requires Comodo Internet Security).
The web browser is shipped with several extensions installed. For example, you can analyze websites to spot malicious activity with the help of Web Inspector, as well as easily share text, links and images on social networks or look them up online via the Drag&Drop Service.
Evaluation and conclusion
We have not come across stability issues in our evaluation. It had minimal impact on computer performance and quickly loaded web pages. No error dialogs popped up, and the tool did not hang or crash. To sum it up, Chrome users interested in extra security features may test Comodo Dragon for themselves to find out whether it meets their requirements or not.
