Yandex Browser is a user-friendly web browser that sports a minimalist look designed specifically for helping you surf the Internet in a cluster-free interface. It uses the same engine as Google Chrome and Safari for rendering web pages, namely the WebKit layout engine, and is based on the Chromium open source project from which it draws its source code. Not only does the program promise to deliver excellent browsing speed, thanks to its built-in turbo mode, which can be enabled in case your Internet connection is slow, but it is also able to warn you about harmful sites that may affect your computer’s security and checks all downloaded files for viruses with Kaspersky. A special emphasis is place on protecting your sensitive data from unauthorized viewing by letting users block or allow cookies for the specified web page, as well setting up permissions. Last but not least, the browser comes packed with an Incognito Mode that automatically erases all cookies and histories when the app is closed, and allows users to install various extensions. Yandex Browser proves to be as stable and feature-packed as other dedicated browsers on the market.
Slow connections won't slow you down. When internet speeds drop, Turbo mode is enabled, which will speed up how fast pages load and save on your data charges.
DNS Spoofing Protection
With the DNSCrypt technology on board, Yandex Browser ensures secure communication with a DNS resolver, encrypting data and preventing DNS spoofing or cache poisoning attacks.
If you need the latest exchange rates or weather forecast, the suggestions have your answer. If you want to visit a site but you don’t remember the exact address, enter its name and Yandex Browser will do the rest.
Change the background in the browser to suit your mood. You can select one of many preset backgrounds, or upload your favorite picture.
Your bookmarks and favorite sites are available to you on any device that has Yandex.Browser. You will never lose them, even if your device breaks or you lose it. Don't forget to install the version for your smartphone and tablet.
