SRWare Iron: The browser of the future – based on the free Sourcecode “Chromium” - without any problems at privacy and security

Google’s Web browser Chrome thrilled with an extremely fast site rendering, a sleek design and innovative features.  But it also gets critic from data protection specialists , for reasons such as creating a unique user ID or the submission of entries to Google to generate suggestions. SRWare Iron is a real alternative. The browser is based on the Chromium-source and offers the same features as Chrome – but without the critical points that the privacy concern.

That’s the reason why SRWare Iron has been created with which you can now use the innovative features without worrying about your privacy.


Iron browser has the exact same features as Chrome. You can pull out tabs to new windows, open browser in Incognito mode, search from the URL bar and almost everything else that exists in Chrome.

Frequently asked questions

I don’t know what it’s about here. What is Iron?
Iron ist an Internet-Browser like “Internet Explorer”, “Firefox” oder “Opera”. It is based on the  “Chromium” Sourcecode.

I read about tools, which try to anonymize Chrome. Why not use these?
Right, there are tools, which try to do the same than Iron. But these don’t work with the sourcecode and so they only provide a limited control. E.g. they can’t disbale functions like th URL-Tracker.

Can i really check that Iron doesn’t submit any private data, how you say?
Yes, you can. There are tools like Wireshark, which scan the whole network-traffic. SRWare Iron could not recognize any obvious activity. But you can proof this by yourself.

Can’t i just use an precompiled unchanged Chromium-Build from the  Google Server?
This is not useful because the original Chromium-Builds have nearly the same functions inside than the original Chrome.

Whats the difference beetwen Iron and Chrome?

The current version of Google Chrome uses Version 530.5 of the Rendering-Engine WebKit, how the Browserstring tells. In Iron we obviously use the most actual WebKit-Version (530.9).
