It’s also fast and works across all platforms so you can get the same experience for browsing on all devices, with bookmarks and history following you.
It’s first noticeable how fast this browser is. It’s about the same speed as Chrome and that speed extends over to real-world usage. The browser also blocks ads to prevent users from being distracted while browsing and it will block flash data files that can help load pages faster. It also comes with an anti-tracking feature that will prevent websites from tracking your actions. It also scans your passwords on sites such as HaveIBeenPwned and make sure that they are safe.
The browser also comes with a number of extensions pre-installed but you can easily install more from the Store. Bank Mode is one of the most useful features. It is a sandbox feature that runs your browser and other applications in an isolated virtual machine from your main system. This feature is designed to safeguard you against phishing scams, by keeping your bank information confidential.
