Sunday, December 20, 2015 Yandex Browser Portable, secure and anonymous browser!
"Yandex is a handsome and fast browser. But it is too much like Chrome for my comfort. Moreover, it localizes most of its functionality, taking away some of its international charm. Stands to reason, when you think about it, as you end up with Yandex + Yandex versus Google + Google Chrome using pretty much the same technology, and this is what the Russian market needs. However, for anyone outside Russia, the combination of language searches, translations and suggestions might be too much." — (April 27, 2013)
"But all in all, the browser seems to be good to go as an option for daily internet activities. Its additional features include mouse gestures, notifications from Facebook and Twitter, document/e-book viewer, safe browsing, and webpage translator, which puts it on par with today’s alternatives." —Andrii Degeler (27 Nov '14, 06:55pm)
"Design wise, Yandex’s concept browser borrows heavily from Microsoft’s Windows 8 redesign, from two years ago." —Natasha Lomas (@riptari), (Nov 28, 2014)
Yandex Browser, stylized as Yandex.Browser, (Russian: Яндекс.Браузер) is a freeware web browser developed by the Russian web search corporation Yandex that uses the Blink layout engine and is based on the Chromium open source project.
