SRWare Iron 3 – Like Chrome without GooglePosted on August 11th, 2009 No comments
The German company SRWare uses the sources Google offers of its Chromium browser to compile a clone of Chrome but with quiet a few modifications. The new browser is called Iron.
Iron gets rid of the unique client id, timestamp, suggest, alternate error pages, error reporting, RLZ tracking, Google updater and URL tracker. But it not only throwing things away it also adds features and updates stuff in the core. Iron uses the newest Webkit engine, adds an easily configurable adblocker and an option to alter the user-agent string permanently.
The Iron Browser is available for free as Open-Source for the Windows OS (Vista, XP) over here.
