Is there any advantages using SRware Iron over Chrome if any. Thanks

http://www.srware.ne...9c272408797008d

Not really. Iron is a browser that claims to have superior privacy over Chrome but all it really does is remove features they claim to be privacy issues when you can just disable them in options anyway. If anything, the entire

project is a bit of a sham. It plays on peoples paranoia of Google and doesn't do anything special, and if anything, they're purposely misleading on how Iron differs from Chrome which is practically nothing.

Yes - they keep disappearing and re-appearing at random. Rather annoying.

Glad it's not just me and actually an issue on Chrome's side. It's indeed rather annoying.

The favicon issue seems to be fixed in the latest Chromium builds so I would expect it to be the same in the dev builds soon.

^That's because it's the first build in which it is present. I installed that build last week and with that build I discovered the build. We're still waiting for the new version to fix this.

Hm, I'm not experiencing any bugs with favicons anymore on my end. There's no extension that could be causing the issue?

I'm not experiencing anymore either, although I did have to exit Chrome a couple of times and re-launch it for ti to update the favicon on the bookmark bar.

Disables the zoom icon/bubble

Glad they got rid of the bubble, at least for now. I use mouse gestures to zoom and the popup would be an annoyance between zoom actions. The zoom icon that appeared in the location bar I didn't mind though.
