Google Chrome offers extremely fast site rendering, a sleek design and innovative features. But it also gets critique from data protection specialists for "features" such as creating a unique user ID Google knows about or the submission of data to Google to generate search suggestions. SRWare Iron is a real alternative. It offers the same features as Chrome - minus all the privacy issues. The list of extra privacy features you get with Iron is long and well worth a look.
One thing Iron does not (yet?) have is auto-update or in-app update. New versions don't become available as quickly as with Chrome. This means that you need to follow the update announcements and install updates manually. Below is a list of available packages by platform and their release timestamp. All details are always posted to the Iron forum.
