Comodo Dragon ver 17.0 is now available for download

Glad to see an option to Disable Auto Updates in Options Basics …

After the last two updates going loopy, I much prefer the notification pop-up - At least with that we can say no for a day and not have the computer go round in circles if it accidently grabs a beta update.

I hope that setting sticks though for the next update - Because of the new default setting of having the auto-updater switched on, I now need to make all users on our desktop who are Limited Accounts (Windows XP), into Admin accounts so that I can also change their options to not auto-update, and then revert the change from Admin accounts back to Limited User accounts.

If the setting is not sticky between new future versions I will have to do this every time.

I do appreciate the benefits of auto-updates with chrome derived browsers, however with recent history I am wary of it …

And in the case of Limited User accounts on XP I presume it would just silently fail, or would it present those users with an elevation dialogue which would also fail … or worse; continuously try to update after each fail because it cannot get admin access at each attempt ?

On a positive note: I love this new version, the speed/performance took a bit of a dive in the last version, this new v 17 has brought back the speed, particularly with my home page …

But also when opening many new tabs simultaneously (right click a bookmarks folder, and choose Open all Bookmarks).

I do that with every new version of Dragon, because Dragon still loses all bookmark Fav Icons after an update. But I find its also a good measure of how the newer version performs.

I have never had these issues ever since using CD :wink:

The thing I like about Comodo Dragon is under Clear browsing data, which is located under the hood. Is that you can clear Website Storage. That Adobe Flash player stores.

So In other words it clears the websites that you have visited. Banking sites etc. But you have to choose to delete or leave them. It’s down to user’s choice.

So are we still on a beta channel? Dragon states “based on chromium 17.0.963.38”

Please check if the following value is present in the system registry:
