spaider-man Posted September 13, 2010 Report Share Posted September 13, 2010 (edited) Basically, it is a chromium-based browser (for those of you who are new to the world of browsers, chromium is an open-source browser currently being developed by Google [Google Chrome]. It offers a wide variety of features such as html 5 support, extensions, sandbox technology, webkit engine, faster page rendering, customizable gui, and more) that features antivirus detection and removal. Here is what I'm hoping it'll do (in no particular order): 1. Automatic scanning of downloads 2. Download management (pause/resume downloads) 3. Better security and privacy (no unique ID, no RLZ tracking, built-in adblocker, clean reset [clear cache and history], virtual keyboard, antivirus scanner, Incognito mode) 4. Option to scan system 5. Community-based 6. Offers chat with friends (a messenger with people connected to you on the browser and immunet protect - if applicable - itself primarily for easily troubleshooting systems or warning them of potential threats and the like) 7. Faster page rendering and downloads 8. Extension compatibility 9. Compatibility option for other browsers (browse pages posing as another browser for compatibility) 10. File access directly from the browser, sandboxing applications. Basically, it is integrating Immunet Protect Free with Chromium browser and adding a few extra features (added features are:  antivirus scanner,  compatibility option  built-in messenger,  file-access (to extend the use of the sandbox) and  download management. That's it. You can use other open-source browsers of course, but I prefer Chrome if we're to boost security. I'm not sure if this can be done with Chrome. However, I've seen Bitdefender add an extension to Chrome to scan systems. It's taking it to another level. I've also seen Chromium-based browsers with download management. Facebook uses the browser for chatting with friends, QtWeb offers compatibility options for other brosers (also open-source) and Epic browser allows file access via the browser itself. Nothing new, really. Just combining everything into a single package. It should be lighter than Epic, Firefox and Google Chrome, but a bit heavier than QtWeb (and only QtWeb). What do you guys think? (Do you) Like it or not? Edited September 19, 2010 by Pedersen Please use normal fonts and sizes Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
