    NIce and light with added security measures. No flash support though. That's a deal breaker for me.

    There is likely flash support, it just isn't built in.

    There is but its buggy at best. The last time I tried to run a flash program as an add on it crashed dragon multiple times. I know that its one of their increasing security limiting attack vectors by not having flash built in. I don't think that is necessary to remove it entirely. Maybe make it an option to add it, if needed. There are enough browsers out there to choose from, I think a lot of folks will find that not having flash built in is inconvenient.

    I've been using Dragon for a month or two now as a second browser. It is really quick to start and shutdown and I have had no problems watching youtube stuff in it (which uses flash as you know).

    I have it setup so it uses the Comodo DNS whereas usually I use Norton.
    So that's a quick way to check out a page that isn't working in Opera (my main browser) to see if it is a dns issue. Very often if it won't work in Opera, it will work in Comodo. I use firefox occasionally too.

    Lightweight and efficient. And very compatible. Great second browser with the DNS alternative setup. :thumb:

    Got BitLocker set up. I don't see any performance degradation.

    I switched to this over a month ago and am loving it. It is so light that I don't even notice it.

    Not for nothing, but I picked up something pretty serious on my system and out of ALL the programs I use, rescue disks, etc...(this includes Kaspersky, Norton, MS, MBAB, Spybot, Avast, AVG, Emisoft, all used to try and detect it and failed and even often paralyzed most of these apps from working at all) and Dr. Web was the only one that picked it up and told me for sure I was infected. Somehow this bug was even able to disable Dr. Web from creating a log file and going any further other than telling me I was infected in rescue mode, so I couldn't tell what I had or remove it, but it was the ONLY one out of the bunch that confirmed that I was in fact diseased.

    Don't know if that means anything to anyone, but something to think about.
