SRWare Iron – a web browser based on the Google Chrome, created by German developers in response to user dissatisfaction resulting from the privacy policy used in the Google product. The application is based on the open source Chromium code and at first glance, it does not differ from it. Both the user interface as well as the functionality offered by SRWare Iron is identical to the Google Chrome.

Users have tabs browsing mechanism, a function of pinning and moving tabs between multiple windows, a built-in file download manager, a pop-up blocker or a convenient bar for translating websites.

Some features of Google Chrome have been removed from Iron:
– RLZ identifier, an encoded string sent together with all queries to Google
– Google search access on startup for users with Google as default search
– Google-hosted error pages when a server is not present
– Google automatic updater
– DNS pre-fetching
– Automatic address bar search suggestions
– Opt-in sending of both browser usage statistics and crash information to Google
– Google Native Client

A few features have been added to:
– An ad blocker
– A user agent switcher
– Opt-in blocking of other background communications, such as extension, GPU blacklist, and certificate revocation updates
– Increased number of recent page thumbnails shown on the New Tab page

As with Google Chrome, each tab runs in a separate process and is isolated from the rest of the browser. The extensions and plugins also work in a similar way. SRWare Iron also offers an Incognito mode, which lets users safely browse pages on which tracking scripts and cookies will not work.

The source code is not available, so looks like the Iron is a closed source application.

The Tor software protects you by bouncing your communications around a distributed network of relays run by volunteers all around the world: it prevents somebody watching your Internet connection from learning what sites you visit, it prevents the sites you visit from learning your physical location, and it lets you access sites which are blocked. TOR was originally developed by and for the United States Navy to protect sensitive U.S. government communications.

Tor Browser lets you use Tor on Microsoft Windows, Apple MacOS, or GNU/Linux without needing to install any software. It can run off a USB flash drive, comes with a pre-configured web browser to protect your anonymity, and is self-contained (portable).

It contains Tor, a modified Firefox ESR, Torbutton, TorLauncher, NoScript, and HTTPS-Everywhere.

Tor Browser is the official internet browser tool of the Tor Network project. This software is aimed at serving users who want to browse in full anonymity, preventing surveillance of any kind. This is achieved by bouncing your communications around a distributed network or relays, making eavesdropping very difficult, if not practically impossible.

Tor Browser can run off a USB flash drive, comes with a pre-configured web browser to protect your anonymity, and is self-contained (portable).
