Chromium browser remixed as a security Dragon

"Windows security software vendor Comodo has added its contribution to the short list of Chromium-based browser remixes that have sprung up in the wake of Google Chrome’s success. Best known for its firewall software, Comodo’s Chromium browser is called Dragon, and it promises better security features than those available in Google Chrome. It is the first browser released by a security software company.

Previously only available in beta test form from the Comodo forums, Dragon introduces one new feature not in Chromium and strips out all of the Google-based innovations. Comodo Dragon has a stricter policy on Web site certification than other browsers, and it will throw up a yellow warning page, if a user tries to access a Web site with an unvalidated certificate. Users can see this on the Facebook log-in page, for example. You can still click through with the "proceed anyway" button, but it’s interesting to see major sites with poor certification get called out.

Comodo Dragon also prevents one from signing in at web sites Comodo don’t like (Tagged.com) and others, without any way to get around it, it blocked the sign in box from being seen. The browser works like malware itself with to much control over which sites you can visit.
