We now recommend Chromium webbrowser instead of SRware Iron …

You might ask … why? for two simple resons:

1) commercial ads on the iron home page
2) no automatic updates in iron

after reading about the true intention of srware iron (which basically is to make money with ads) and being annoyed by having to do the updates manually all the time, besides a considerable count of crashes that have been introduced over the last several months i finally dropped srware iron completely and installed chromium binary from the free open source mac user group instead (which includes automatic updates + binary release for initial setup):

here’s some interesting article with background info about the intention behind iron:

Our recommendation: Chromium
Chromium Mac binary distribution offered by the Free Open Source Software Mac User Group – Here you get the world’s best webbrowser including automatic updates:

Have fun! 😉
