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. :)
Older code may be vulnerable.

Older code may be vulnerable.
I am well aware of that, but i also use CIS and i also use other methods...like running any internet going program ( So Yandex included. ) through EMET. Just because a browser is a bit behind with the engine does not mean it is not a good and safe browser to use. I wish people would stop thinking like that, it just keeps other good/great browser unknown just because every one swears with the big named browsers.

This Chinese browser called 'Baidu Spark Browser' is not new - not the newest and best (another Baidu link: http://en.browser.baidu.com/ - WOT says OK.) ..
WOT Reputation of sparkbrowser.com : https://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/sparkbrowser.com - says BAD of it ..

'It's based on Chromium not Chrome. Yes there is a difference. "Who would be stupid enough to pay for this browser?" There are people stupid enough to do this. Just someone thought It would be cool to mess with Chromiums source. + What others say.'
'Very bad security, many untrue claims made by the creator plus many false testimonials.'
'A browser that's not only very incompetently made, but it also allows them to track your activity in the usage terms and is just bad in overall.'

Hi,
I had installed the Spark browser, he is good but: there are no extensions?

It was said, the browser is based on Google Chrome.
All extensions and themes of Google Chrome would be applicable.
That's not true: It is not possible, I tried it!
Who wants to try it: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/category/apps


**why is this not possible?

**why Baidu has no extensions and themes for the browser?

**where there are extensions?


I have written several mails to baidu.
But they do not respond, those damn!


Thanks in advance for all answers!

It's probably using an outdated version of chrome just like many of other chineese chrome forks.
If you have problems while downloading extensions/apps from Google App Store, then follow these steps:

Go to your Right Handside of Badu Browser, Click on Menu Bar (3 lines showing) and go to Bookmark and enable Book Mark Bar by clicking on "Show Bookmark Bar" and then follow screenshot..



and its is working Better than original Google Chrome too, In Facebook, sometime chrome failed to show images of posts..

I would not recoment any product from Baidu. They use adware/rough tactics to install other protucts etc. i would never trust baidu.
Dear ! 360 and Baidu are popular Chinese products.

I had checked their products, Browser, antivirus and etc, Both of them are trusted..

But my favourite antivirus is from other company, and both companies web browser are using Google Chrome engine, but their features are different, their antiviruses have engine from avira and bitdefender..

I am currently using Baidu Browser, in past my favourite was Firefox for many years and then Google chrome and now Baidu...

360 and Baidu products are using millions of people...

Its your choice to use them are not..
