Comodo Dragon: Privalert(11 posts)
Hi Jim. I use Comodo Dragon mostly which is the Chromium variant. Ice Dragon is the FF one...got that too The Dragon has one or two more security features like Block Referrer Header (in Advanced Settings) and the Privalert extension, when it's there! Dragon's been going longer so Ice Dragon may get the same stuff eventually.
It's worth looking at the Comodo Program Manager as well as a security measure because if you run any malware-infected program that you unwittingly initiate it will warn you and stop it...not tested this part myself though with some malware yet. It monitors any program installation (including 64bit) and basically does the same job as Revo for all those programs it has monitored the installation of, as it does a post-uninstallation check for any leftover entries. Been using it a month with no problems. Only using Revo on those programs it hasn't monitored the install of...32bit anyway.
Get this extension and look in Tab menu: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/chrome-toolbox-by-google/fjccknnhdnkbanjilpjddjhmkghmachn?hl=en

Thanks Tony. I installed the Tab menu and got what I wanted.
It appears that I don't have to click the scroll wheel on a link now to open it in a new tab. :)
Things seem to work differently in different browsers.
Will just take a little getting use to Comodo Dragon I guess.
many thanks for helping me out, Tony.
That's ok mate. :) It might not seem as featured out-of-the-box as FF but there's usually an extension around somewhere for what you want. Make sure to have a look through Advanced settings and enable Block Referrer Header...that's how you are tracked by ad companies. You can enable or disable Secure DNS there as well...this warns about malware sites but could possibly slow some people's browsing down.
