Just tried a browser from a country that has some competitive engineers.
YANDEX is interesting, UI wise, feature wise, but it's probably the slowest Chromium browser I've used to date.
I've been using it for the past two days, haven't noticed any issues performance wise.
I have been meaning to try this browser for a while now. @AlphaBeta your review might just be enough for me to give it a spin.
How soon does it update its Chromium core?
I love this browser. It´s a nice Chromiun based, fast and comfortable, but in my computer, Opera improves its performance in speed and RAM consumption
Idk, I've tried it multiple times, same result. It'll work well like the first day or two, and then it'll just fall off a cliff. Could just be client-side, like anything else.
It doesn't use chromium. It uses the Blink layout engine and is based on the Chromium open source project
I think it does. Yandex is based on the open-source Chromium, just like Google Chrome, Comodo's Chromodo, etc.
Chromium (web browser) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Most browsers work well and smooth on my PC. I just have a problem with them not being able to render web pages right. Checking my CPU and RAM usage, yandex seems to use a little bit more RAM than chrome and opera.
It doesn't seem like they have a solid changelog. The latest version uses chrome v50 anyway.
Yandex.Browser — neat, intuitive and smart
Yandex 18.104.22.1681 is on Chrome 57.0.2987.2461
As expected it's one version behind the current Chrome browser
Opera has limited chrome extensions availability. So far Chromium uses chrome extensions without problems
so whats the bottom line? hot or not?
Good to know, using new or updated browsers is fun.
Using the same old same gets boring, plus Kaspersky download protection is a big deal
The build is different but they update it in their own way(so it doesn't matter)because it get updates every day.
Btw they use Sophos(Sig+Behaviour), Kaspersky and their own engine for blocking the websites.
I'm giving it a spin from both work and home for some time now. Security features are really neat, scan on download, tempering alerts, etc. As for speed and lightness, my current favorite is Opera, and I'm not measuring it by opening a task manager and looking at the usage - a bit pointless with todays hardware imho. As a guy with ~30+ tabs opened at an average, the feeling is it's almost as fast as Opera. Speaking of which, I'm quite irritated at the fact that there is no way of putting those tabs vertically. Opera, Firefox (haven't tested the Quantum yet), Vivaldi (I'm trying so hard to like it, but it's still missing that "someting") all have that possibility implemented one way or another. Yandex hasn't and that's the only thing that puts me off. Otherwise, I'd make a default browser in a minute.
I read some posts in other threads arguing the country it originates from. With all due respect to those members, this has nothing to do with the quality of the product. I understand personal preference, and speaking of trust, I'd sooner put mine in this one than in NSA one (whoops, USA one).
Conclusion, I think it has a really nice perspective and is great feature wise. If it, in addition, could cater to the tab freaks like me, it would be my default one.
Can you tell me where does Yandex connects to upon start up? Does it connects to Google?
