    Does it use hard-wired plugins to switch between Webkit and IE engines? Have the Google tracking and phone home connections been ripped out of it?

    So far,i like it.I'm using Comodo Dragon for a while,but wanted to try others.I'm trying SuperBird & now this.
    I wish 360 would put the star in the address field to save bookmarks faster,& add what Dragon has..."Do Not Allow Websites To Know Where You Came From(surpress HTTP Referrer header)".

    I just tested it and did not like it. I had spikes in high CPU where the fan worked to maximum. Also it was just like any other chrome based browser with nothing special. Heck I even tested some malware links and it seems it in-cloud protection did nothing chrome would do.

    I still have not find any chrome based browser that works better then coolnovo browser which is fast and multi-engines and lite in the chrome based browsers.

    Right now as I type this, 360 is using 2 processes totaling 49K with CPU fluctuating between 1-5%. Chrome has 5 processes totaling 270K, with the same CPU usage. The only thing that 360 doesn't have which I really like is the auto language translate that Chrome has.

    Also, no extra services were added like the two that Chrome adds.

    Do you have more extensions in Chrome? Chrome uses separate processes for each extension, plugin, etc. A bare Chrome with one tab open should use three processes:

    Chrome.exe (broker process)
    - Chrome.exe (GPU process)
    - Chrome.exe (tab)

    Hello,

    I am having a problem with downloads from Freakshare when using 360 Browser. The download starts but then it stops and says that it has been cancelled. Anybody having the same issue?

    Thanks

    well I have a a old 4 years old compact pc (small) and the fan is very sensitives to spikes of high cpu and etc., so when a program does it, the fan goes to loud over-drive noise. I use it to test the applications effects on windows and pc. So far the only browsers that effected it are 360 browser, baidu spark and waterfox.

    Thats why I am using coolnovo browser, as it does not cause this spikes, even with tons of extensions.

    I've got a problem with address bar, I can't see the url addresses in the address bar as you can see in screenshot below. when I click inside the address bar it just gets worse and worse. are any of you experiencing this freakish bug?

    everything else works just fine, It's fast and lite. I would use it as my secondary web browser if they fix that problem!

    Download manager in 360 is normal like in browsers or its download accelerator like IDM, FDM?

    Are there browsers with inbuilt adblocker & download accelerator?

    I installed this on a virtual machine where I'm testing OA
    the first two alerts considered, explicitly, the installer to be malware
    I allowed it to go on and, along the way, there were other alerts,
    many to actions not warranted to a browser
    I'll have to agree with Emsisoft's classification

    Call me racist or whatever politically correct ****
    but Chinese software won't go outside my VMs

    Screen logger detected? Wow, that's not cool. Have you got that alert for any other legitimate software? i.e. False Positive?

    nope

    there were other alerts
    like using explorer.exe to access the net
    gaining control over several Windows processes
    and more cool stuff

    installing software with OA can be trying
    but it's so revealing

    Why would a web browser need to do all that? I'll stick to IE11, thank you.

    Guys please stop bashing Chinese ppl, that's not like what You think. :) I wonder why some people have such special pessimistic perspective about Chinese ppl o_O just forget about countries borders, we are all humans, that's all that matters.

    uhhm, my point of view about OA: it's kinda prone to generate FAs, and that's one of the reasons I couldn't stand it anymore, therefore removed it unhappily. I'm running 360 browser with having all CFW guards switched on, I didn't get any single alert. you wanna know how much inaccurate online armor can be regarding screen loggers, ok be my guest, just Google this : "online armor screen logger"

    Our mad fellow flags almost everything as screen logger :blink: however, I still like it :)

    Amin

    Who said anything about Chinese people?
    Don't be stupid

    It's not false alerts
    it's a HIPS alerting to every action,
    if you can't tell the difference use something else

    If CFW is Comodo firewall I'm not surprised,
    once something is in their Trusted Vendors List
    everything will be allowed

    Googling that only shows a HIPS detecting keylogger behavior (its job)
    which is to be found in media players, PDF readers and so many others,
    and users unfamiliar with what that is, so screaming out "false positive"

    maybe that was me :argh:
    Chinese software = a software that has been made by Chinese ppl!
    and I'm not stupid, my mother had me tested when I was a kid! :)


    yes it is. I know the difference. I'm studying security engineering last time I checked. HIPS is not separate from the AV, it's just another AV's module and it belongs to AV. it makes no difference whether a file was detected via HIPS or sigs database, becuz in the end we'd call both a detection or a false positive. therefor wrongly flagging a file as a "screen logger" through HIPS alerts or any other modules, is a "false alarm".

    HIPS alerts are always welcome for all I care, but when it says "Screen logger detected" it's not just an alert, It's a detection as well.

    firstly, you can't just simply say "Trusted Vendors", There is a highly standard procedure behind that.

    + & +


    For what it's worth I have disabled 'Trust Applications signed by Trusted Vendors' in the File rating Settings panel. I also set HIPS to paranoid mode. although Comodo generated HIPS alerts, it never flagged '360 browser' as a "screen logger" nor recommended me to block it!

    Come on, Don't tell us "IE, Acrobat reader, firefox, KeePass, bitcoin and etc" are all screen loggers along with 360 browser! :p


    as I said, a detection is a detection regardless of being detected by HIPS or Sigs.

    and a "HIPS alert" is different from a "Malware detection" (I mean the 'screen logger detected' thing!) HIPS alerts are normal, but what we are talking about is "HIPS alert + virus detected"

    So I think the problem lies on weak white list capabilities, or maybe you're running 360 browser using 'Run safer'.

    Firstly, do not make sweeping statements like that. Only one poster mentioned "Chinese".

    Your response does not help the the discussion. I already challenged Joxx asking if 360 browser is the only browser that triggered OA security alerts.

    The questions remains, why does the 360 Browser require such deep hooks compared to other web browsers?
