Chrome without the resource load — SWR Iron

29 Jul

I am trying a new browser which looks and acts just like Chrome. I first read about it on Gizmo’s Freeware, a trustworthy site.

For all of its positive reviews, Chrome does have its critics.  Their major complaint is that Chrome creates a unique ID through which a user can be theoretically identified.  If this is your concern, then SWR Iron may very well be an option for you.  SWR Iron looks and acts almost exactly like Google Chrome, but without sending any information back to Google’s servers.  This means that there is no possibility of any browsing history or personal information being sent back to Google, yet you still get all the benefits of a lean and powerful browser.

Can you spot the difference?

I certainly notice the much lower CPU usage and disk load!
