Comodo Tips

Komodo...We Mean Comodo Dragon Protects You Online

Browsers expose you to attack. At Comodo, we've been saying all along not to rely on the antivirus software in your browser to protect you from today's sophisticated malware. But now hackers are finding vulnerabilities in your browser itself to take aim at your PC or, more chillingly, at the personal information you store on it.

Comodo helps you guard your PC and the information on it with its new browser, Comodo Dragon. Dragon is constructed on the open-source Google Chrome browser. Its enhancements further protect your privacy, in ways that even Chrome does not.

Google Chrome tracks software errors in order to report them back to Google, but an attacker who finds that information can use it to discover vulnerabilities in the computer system. Comodo Dragon eliminates that threat by not tracking and reporting errors.

With Comodo Dragon, information about online exploration stays entirely within your PC. Unlike Google Chrome, Comodo Dragon does not create an ID for each visitor, nor does it track when and where the browser was downloaded. Similarly, when Google Chrome discovers errors, it communicates them with Google's remote server, whereas Comodo Dragon only responds with error messages found on your PC browser.

Comodo Dragon offers you an entirely new feature. 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 security.)
