No, its Comodo with Dragon. Why would you even think that, thats a dumb idea .
This probably isn't even news to most of you. And normally a new chromium browser wouldn't be much of a big deal considering all the ones we currently have, but this is the second Chromium browser to be supported by a major company (Google obviously being the first), and I have generally come to trust Comodo for quality and security (all that eula stuff has passed, they took care of it). I used to use SRWare Iron as my “secure” browser, but I'm thinking about switching. As expected, Comodo's is touting Dragon's security as its main feature, and it has such features as a built in script blocker and by default blocks all tracking cookies. Dragon of course supports all of Google Chrome's extensions, and, as a nice feature that most other chromium browsers don't have, supports the app marketplace too.
Now for the cons: Its ugly. “But Pwnana, with such a cool logo it must have a cool UI!” Nope, its just blocky and reminds me of Yahoo browser. Luckily, the ugly browser buttons can be replaced in a theme, but not all themes play well with Dragon, and you can't do anything about the blocky tabs.
All in all, I will keep an eye on dragon. The great thing about Chromium browsers is that they are mostly user supported and developed, so any content created for one browser works in others, so theres not much to be expected feature-wise from dragon.
As an odd aside, when I first opened Dragon from the installation dialog the Iron icon lit up like it was open (Win7), and seemed to act for Dragon. Normally this could be understandable, as there is only 1 installation of webkit on any computer, so it could have just mixed up which program was supposed to open webkit. But Iron is currently portable, not installed O_o. Weird.
