Comodo Dragon Protects Online Privacy

Jersey City, NJ, February 11, 2010 — Comodo, a leader in cybersecurity, announces its new Internet browser, Comodo Dragon. Like Google Chrome, Comodo Dragon is constructed on the open-source Chromium Project browser. Dragon's enhancements increase security and protect user privacy.

Comodo Dragon offers a new feature for Internet users. Websites all have digital certificates attesting to their identities, but some certificates offer more security than others. If Comodo Dragon encounters a Domain-only certificate, it warns the user that the website may not be reliable. Domain-only certificates are available to any webmaster at low cost and with no verification, providing no guarantee of authentication.

With Comodo Dragon, information about online exploration stays as much as possible within the user's PC. Comodo Dragon does not transmit information about a browsing session to a remote server. Such a transmission exposes information about where the user has been on the Internet. For example, other Chromium Project-based browsers refer software errors to remote servers. When it finds software errors, Comodo Dragon responds with error messages found on the PC browser, keeping information about the user's Internet travels private.

Comodo Dragon eliminates a potential threat: that attackers could find vulnerabilities by looking for the software errors that the browser was compiling to report to a remote server. Comodo Dragon neither tracks nor reports errors

Comodo Dragon protects Internet users from inadvertently exposing information about themselves, enhancing online security. For more information, visit Comodo.com/home/browsers-toolbars/browser.php
