Comodo Dragon vs Google Chrome
This article is outdated. Please read the updated article at www.techishare.com/tech/comodo-dragon-vs-google-chrome-updated/
Comodo, a well known security company has recently released a new browser called Comodo Dragon. Comodo says that Comodo Dragon is
Fast and versatile Internet Browser based on Chromium, infused with Comodo’s unparalleled level of Security!
We already know that Google Chrome has topped in all recent browser tests and is also the only unhacked browser in a hacker competition. So, no doubt it has better security than many other web browsers. Comodo says that it has enhanced the security of a browser which is already secure. So, guys if you have a phobia of wanting to be secure then this browser may help you.
The reason why I recommend this browser only to few people (who are security paranoids) because it has few drawbacks. The main drawback is that Comodo Dragon runs on an outdated version of Chrome! You can’t use extensions! For browsers like Firefox and Chrome, extensions are crucial and being unable to use extensions is pointless.
The second reason is regarding SSL certificate identification. Comodo highlights this feature and says
Comodo Dragon has Domain Validation technology that identifies and segregates superior SSL certificates from inferior ones
But to me it looks like Google Chrome handles SSL certificates in a better way than Dragon. I tried to signup for Dreamhost webhosting using both Comodo Dragon and Google Chrome. Google Chrome worked fine and the Dreamhost’s signup page was loaded fine. But Dragon says Dreamhost is not verified and is not safe.
So, guys I recommend Google Chrome over Comodo Dragon for above said reasons. Use Comodo Dragon at your own risk, because you may lose those 1500 new features that are added to new Google Chrome!
