    Has anybody tried Element Browser? It is a free browser made by Element Software. I am interested in these features: Safesurf, Dynamic malware protection, and antiphishing.

    there doesn't seem to be much on their website about the security of their browser except for this bit:

    IIRC, there was a discussion over at Gizmo's forum.

    Dynamic malware protection: Built on the proven reliability of Element Antivirus, Element Browser can automatically detect and shut down malicious software that may be running on your computer. (I assume this provides a measure of defense against scareware and potentially unwanted software.)

    SafeSurf: With SafeSurf you can block users from accessing unwanted web content ranging from social networking and video sites to adult, malicious attack sites, violence etc. And this is all done with a simple click of a button. And you can secure it too!

    Eh, I'll stick to Chrome for security. This could be interesting in the future.
