Comodo Dragon is a freeware web browser. It is based on Chromium and is produced by Comodo Group. Sporting a similar interface to Google Chrome, Dragon does not implement Chrome's usage tracking and some other potentially privacy-compromising features, and provides additional security measures, such as indicating the authenticity and relative strength of a website's SSL certificate. 
Upon installation, Comodo Dragon offers the opportunity to configure either the Dragon Comodo or the user's entire computer to use Comodo's own DNS servers instead of the user's Internet service provider. Comodo Dragon performs additional checks on the SSL digital certificates of secure websites, and informs users if a site's certificate may be of insufficient strength. It includes an on-demand site inspector designed to determine if a site hosts malicious code.
