Yandex Browser 1.0

Yandex.Browser is a simple and easy-to-use internet browser. It loads pages quickly, just shows you what you need and gives you plenty of space for viewing webpages. The Yandex browser features a merged search and address bar, which can be used both to surf and to search the internet. The browser also gives its users a choice of search engines with which to power their search. Users do not need to change the settings - a new search provider can easily be picked at a click for each specific search.

The Yandex browser uses the WebKit engine, popular with a large number of web developers. The browser's user interface is based on the open-source Chromium code. The Yandex browser platform has through a technological partnership with a key long term partner been expanded to incorporate Opera Software's Turbo technology, which allows to boost the browser's page loading capacity even with a slow connection. The Turbo mode will be included in the next browser release. In addition to the basic open-source components, the browser has also been augmented with out-of-the-box plug-ins, including the latest versions of Adobe Flash and a PDF reader.

The company's cloud-based safe browsing technology, together with Kaspersky Lab's security solution, enhances the browser's safety by warning the users about potentially malicious websites.

Tried it for about 5 minutes. Not bad, but hate the way this browser and Chromes bookmarks are setup.

Might give it another shot after it get's more up to date as far as options within the settings, although that is doubtful.

Won't let you specify install directory. Just use a chrome/ium build.
That completely miss the point of using this browser. It's pretty nifty, the only problem though is that the English version still has some Russian elements in it
