    Pinga, the link that you have provided, directs to a Download page that lists the current version as 3.0.197.0. The author is directing readers to the Beta version 4.0.227, which is the same link currently provided in the above page, under Iron 4.0 Beta: Download and Infos > here <. In actuality, David Murphy should have linked to version 4.0.275 Release Candidate, the most current version.

    BTW, the blog post is from the same srware.net site and they are calling it the Iron-Version themselves.

    Anyone who uses the browser - and it seems that the author of the article was not among them - knows that it is called Iron. It is common to use dashes between words in German, i.e. in street names such as John-F-Kennedy-Allee.

    Hence the confusion... The Iron team must be too busy coding to be paying too much attention to their English translations. But hey, it's a great project and a great browser.

    They are not coding anything. They are merely taking the Chromium source code, compiling it and then calling it Iron. Chromium itself does not have any of the Chrome snooping -- that is something Google adds to be project. So, basically, Iron is just Chromium with a new name.

    This is true although they do add a few small things such as adblocking filter support. I'd still rather use Chromium between the two because Srware rarely ever updates.
