SRWare Iron is a free web browser implementation of the Chromium source code, designed to offer an improved alternative to the well-known Google Chrome. It provides its users with the same features as Chrome, but it eliminates some privacy and security problems. In addition, it does implement some additional features that distinguish it from Google Chrome, such as built-in ad blocking.
The following Google Chrome features are not present in Iron: RLZ identifier, an encoded string sent together with all queries to Google or once every 24 hours; Google search access on startup for users with Google as default search; a unique ID for identifying the user in logs; a timestamp of when the browser was installed; Google-hosted error pages when a server is not present; Google Updater automatic installation; automatic address bar search suggestions; bug tracking system, sends information about crashes or errors.
