SRWare Iron 0.2.152.0 Webbrowser based on Google Chrome

SRWare Iron
SRWare Iron: The browser of the future - based on the free Sourcecode "Chromium" - without any problems at privacy and security

Google's Web browser Chrome thrilled with an extremely fast site rendering, a sleek design and innovative features. But it also gets critic from data protection specialists , for reasons such as creating a unique user ID or the submission of entries to Google to generate suggestions. SRWare Iron is a real alternative. The browser is based on the Chromium-source and offers the same features as Chrome - but without the critical points that the privacy concern.

The current beta of Google Chrome uses as an old version (525.13) of the rendering engine WebKit, so the Useragent-string says. We use in Iron obviously the latest version of WebKit (525.19)*, which, for example, Apple's Safari browser currently uses


Privacy:

Comparism of Iron vs. Chrome at privacy:
- Client-ID
Chrome creates a unique ID through which a user can be theoretically identified.
- Timestamp
Chrome remembers up to the second exactly when the software was installed.
- Suggest
Depending on the configuration, each time you put something in the address line,this information is to Google to provide suggestions.
- Alternate Error Pages
Depending on the configuration, if you have typed a false address in the adress bar, this is sent to Google and you get an error message from Google's servers.
- Error Reporting (to http://web-bug.appspot.com/bugreport; http://fix.me.please/?url=$1)
Depending on the configuration, details about crashes or failures are sent Google's servers.
- RLZ-Tracking
This Chrome-function transmits information in encoded form to Google, for example, when and where Chrome has been downloaded.
- Google Updater
Chrome installs a updater, which loads at every Windows in background.
- URL-Tracker
Calls depending on the configuration five seconds after launch the Google homepage in background

Shiira for MAC


Shiira is a web browser based on Web Kit and written in Cocoa. Shiira is the Japanese name for the common dolphin. The browser uses Apple's WebKit, allowing the Web pages just like Safari or Google Chrome are presented. Unlike Apple's own browser, Shiira is under an open-source license, namely the BSD license. Exciting is that the bookmarks from Safari and Firefox browsers, even without import are directly viewable. Another feature: At the push of a button saves Shiira no more cookies and adds the browser history no further entries.
