Going online means having to decide which web browser you’re going to use to find your way around the Internet. If security is your primary concern, a new browser just entered the arena and vies for attention. If Comodo IceDragon sounds familiar, you’ve probably been put in mind of Comodo Dragon, the security focused web browser based on Chromium. IceDragon is very much the same idea but this time around there is a Mozilla core.
Comodo have recognized that not everyone wants to use the same web browser just to get the benefits of added security, and Chrome is not a browser that suits everyone. The unveiling of a Mozilla based version of the same tool opens up a world of more secure web browsing to a wider audience. If you are already a Firefox user, you’ll be pleased to find that your bookmarks history, passwords and more can be imported into IceDragon.
The browser has a great looking interface, but it is security that is the really important feature. Just as with Comodo Dragon, here you have the opportunity to use Comodo Secure DNS. This helps to ensure that the sites you visit are not malicious and because this is a Firefox-based browser you can continue to use all of the browser extensions that you have become used to over the years.
There is a Site Inspector tool built into the browser and this can be used to check the safety and validity of any web site you may be concerned about. This is a helpful feature if you have decided against using Comodo Secure DNS, but it also acts as an extra line of defence if a site raises your suspicions.
