Doesn't look like a pretty browser, but i'll def try this sometime in the future.
Home / download page:
This may be the case, that you can not in the future never again try it - it seems that this browser is dead, as well as CoolNovo seems dead.
Current Spark:
Webinstaller: http://dl-vip.browser.baidu.com/All_Official-mini/Spark_MiniDownloader.exe
Offline installer: http://dl-vip.browser.baidu.com/Spark_Setup_all.exe
:( Unknown on which Chrome it based, as well as there isn't digital signature.
 
I don't really trust Baidu that much. Looks like everything is spaced apart way to much and uncommon functions are on the toolbar, just taking up idle space. Isn't Baidu a Chinese search engine, kind of a Chinese version of Google? If Google monitors your data and then Baidu...
(scream!)
Will be exactly the same as Google Chrome! (Other than the larger icon and OS X style omnibar

NB! The browser itself is perfectly usable, but it also installs some unneccessary spyware on your computer. Recommended after installation to run control and also complete registry control, to delete of a number of unnecessary entries, made by Spark installer.
Hmmm why not stay with IE, Mozilla, Chrome, Opera guaranteed proven, spyware free no crap no hassle and NO Asian rip off spy tactics and false advertisements about so called Asian fake browsers ripped of western products.
Really.....
I am not going to bother with Asian products up to a point that i need one if there is NO western counterpart available that suits my needs.

I do respect innovative software and new idea's but i rather stay with proven concepts until proven otherwise rather then getting a B Minus program.
And yes some western software is not as "spy free" as we all know (MS, Google and so on) but at least i know what i am signing up for and how to deal with it.
In the past weeks i did read to much crap about Baidu and other popular programs that i would not trust them on my computer even if they pay me to.

Just my 2 cents.

with Internet browser you can do it Download Youtube nor any Tube, r*dT*b3, and you can
convert your youtube to MP4,MP3 FLV etc, for this used Spark Browser..please note Spark browser
will force to change your IE default Search engine and Spark browser will update automatically without permission.
(special thing Spark Browser you can download any Torrent link) here my SS http://goo.gl/uv46fe
Off Topic: If you are FireFox lovers..more simply used eg add-ons video download helper it's stil compatible
to FireFox 30.0 beta 7

I hope my experience will helped you a lot,
good luck... and give it a try now.

Notice: When you Try Spark Browser,other APPS/SW better on virtual mode used eg:Shadow Defender
If you wish to choose Spark Browser it's not wrong but carefully to handling it.

My vote I like it!

On all of the Chromium clones, if you want to sync your settings they require you to have a Google account, they don't have their own sync features. I rather trust my privacy with Google compared to the third-party clone developers, if you search for Chrome extensions they are several that will block Google's tracking and give you better privacy. You can not add anything to the clones to patch vulnerabilities.

Thanks. :D
Yandex Browser has its own Yandex Sync.

your..and now My Yandex 999.9 Chrome engine ..yes cool UI...how to set default search engine to google not Yandex.com?

When you go to Settings click on "manage search engines", then when you hover over the Google search engine you will see to the right of it a small blue box with the text "make default". Just click on it and that should do it.

i dont like it its use a old core
Well to each their own of course, but personally i think it is sad to say that you do not like the entire browser just because it is not the same current engine as Google Chrome. Yandex is a great browser in my opinion because i tried it out, and saw that i liked it more then any other browser i have tried in the past. ( Including Google Chrome. )

But as i mentioned already to each their own. :)
