Internet & Networking InfoWorld's Serdar Yegulalp takes an in-depth look at six Chromium-based spinoffs that bring privacy, security, social networking, and other interesting twists to Google's Chrome browser. 'When is it worth ditching Chrome for a Chromium-based remix? Some of the spinoffs are little better than novelties. Some have good ideas implemented in an iffy way. But a few point toward some genuinely new directions for both Chrome and other browsers.'

Agree. They have fluffy multipage articles that only drain your time and inform you about nothing.

In fact, this one is particularly bad even for infoworld.

Of the 5 "Chromium-Based Remixes", they included Chromium. So really it's only 4 "remixes"; one of which is which has been widely debunked as a scam:
SRWare Iron - the scam: http://chromium.hybridsource.org/the-iron-scam

Which then only leaves 3 "remixes".

What an epic fail of an article.

While I hate the Infoworld layout as much as anyone i am grateful for anybody that gives Comodo Dragon more exposure because after tripping over it a few years back that is all i give my customers and family as well as use it myself and think its great.

if you haven't tried it give it a spin, you can have it install all settings in its own folder so you can use it like a portable app, even install to stick, its Comodo Secure DNS (which you can toggle on and off at will) is faster than the local DNS and blocks most malware and phishing sites dead, all the Chrome extensions like ABP work great, and no phoning home like Google Chrome, its just a great and snappy browser.

I can understand the multi-page paradigm that many sites now use. Luckily, however, at this time in the Infoworld articles you can click the "Print" link above the article and get it all on one page...

Or use a browser extention such as Readability (which admittedly does what it can with these multi-page fluffy sites but is not 100% reliable).

My theory is that ads generate benefits each time they are displayed.

5 pages => 5x more ads displayed => 5x the ad revenue of one page.
