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..
if millions of users use a product dosnt make it safe or respectful. Qihoo is a bad company as well just use google and look what all they have done in the past. Last one was cheating in av-test with a changed product. thats not the only bad thing,there are way more bad things qihoo have done. and from baidu,i dont even start what they are doing,how they bundle there products like pups/pua/adware crap,spy on there users(same as qihoo does) try to uninstall other softwares from other vendors(chinese versions only) etc etc the list goes on and goes on. but sure,if u want to use a product from a company like baidu/qihoo,u can do it.

I don't have nothing against companies trying to make a good browser from Chromium source. But in terms of security holes, patching them, security features, and in fact everything that is a lot more important than plugins for handling media like videos and music in browsers, and other unessential mumbo-jumbo, only browser that can go near to Google Chrome is Opera.

Some Chrome forks are outdated for more than 2 months or 3-4 versions from original Chromium releases. That's enough to hear

May be you right, but i think opera does not support Google Apps Store, i used opera in Past only a month and donot find it best, but i found opera best in days of Dial-up connection (50kb/s Page open speed) in 10 years ago approx. in my country, it gives 7-10kb/s download speed of files, even IDM speed was 2-4kb/s..

@Siraj : That's a pretty common issue which happen for some reason including Google Chrome browser; the best thing is to clear browsing history (use private browsing instead) or reset your internet connection or observe within few days which will back unusual.

Sorry for bumping up this old thread , but i have thried the Baidu browser and honsetly is blazing fast. Faster than MxNitro.

However it always crashes after about 1 minutes , don't know why. Was just wondering if others also have this issue and if they somehow fixed it? I'm using Windows 10

Thanks!
