We recently discovered what you, the TechBeat readers, prefer to use when it comes to browsers, however we noticed that some of you commented on how you have chosen alternative browsers over the mainstream ones like Firefox, Chrome and Internet Explorer. So if you are looking for a change and want something a bit different, why not try one of these alternative browsers.

Comodo IceDragon

Picture 1 of 3

Comodo IceDragon is a Firefox-based browser that offers a high level of security for those who are particularly concerned about malware and phishing websites. One of the main reasons for this is because you can route web browsing through Comodo's own DNS servers, which the company claims are faster and more secure. Checks are performed on SSL digital certificates and you are given reports on how strong a secure website really is. At the same time an on-demand site inspector checks for malicious code. It features a virtual browsing mode so that it can run completely separate from the rest of your system, therefore ensuring that malware cannot infect your PC. It looks and feels just like Firefox but with added security, however if you prefer the Chrome framework then you have the option of using Comodo Dragon, which is specifically for Chromium based browsing.
