Yandex Browser

I did a bit of experimenting a while back with the Yandex browser, still beta.
It also is a Chromium type, but it does have some interesting wrinkles, including some unique security stuff.
It would definitely be a keeper if their translator worked consistently, because it's base is in Russian.
Any chance of adding it to MX?

hmmm [sarcasm]a browser built on Google technology in Moscow. I'll bet the security is unique. :eek: [/sarcasm]

I used it I lasted 3 days, I could not stand it, 40% Spanish 60% Russian, it's fast and safe but after trying several browsers in MX my recommendation is to keep Slimjet (walks beautifully) and Vivaldi (very safe)
Firefox sometimes slows down the machine and Opera is fast but with third-party additions.

I had given it a try. Translation was unfinished. Configuration too restrictive.

Well, just one more Chromium fork among 15 others...

I bow to your collective opinion.
As for privacy, using it might confuse the NSA ....? ;)

And strangely, since I posted this, I spotted this post, also today:
viewtopic.php?f=6&p=484535#p484535

It is not nice at all to either Slimjet or Vivaldi, which I just happen to use most. Opinions on referenced article's validity would be welcomed.
