Cometbird

Recommended Posts

I just installed it. I see no difference between Cometbird and Firefox...at all. I just installed the WOT addon and it thought I was using Firefox. I didn't just willingly install spyware did I?

Hm...Saying it is a FF clone only on the "Develop" page is not nice.

Is this safe to be on my PC or not??

 

Being a "clone" of legitimate software is bothering me.

I hadn't heard of it until the other day with a request to have CCleaner cleanse it.

SiteAdvisor lists the site as safe.

 

A clone of open source software is fine, think about it Netscape have used Mozilla's stuff for years now, as does Flock, etc. To ease your mind just upload the installer to one or all of these: virScan.org, Virus Total, Jotti

Good point. I usually scan files here: http://online.us.drweb.com. I guess I don't see the point of an app like Cometbird. It seems exactly like Firefox, with only a few very minor changes.
