SRWare Iron v69.0.3600.0 Updated

billon on 9 Oct 2018
  • 160MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 9 Oct 2018
  • Suggested by freakazoid

SRWare Iron is a privacy-enhanced web browser based on Chromium, the open source project behind Google Chrome. By default, Iron sends out less information as compared to Chrome (e.g., creating a unique user ID or the submission of entries to Google to generate suggestions), making it potentially more privacy friendly and secure in operation.

Iron supports both official and unofficial themes and some extensions from Chrome. Additionally, to enable blocking ad servers, a 'adblock.ini' is present in the program folder, and Opera's 'urlfilter.ini' can easily be converted to Iron's accepted format by following these instructions (or see comments below).

Note: It is recommended you change the homepage. The Iron default homepage may contain ads or links to fake adware-containing downloads.

Alternative packages:

  • Iron Portable (adds password portabilization, path portabilization, registry cleanup and Java support)
  • X-Iron (idem)

Category:
System Requirements: Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? No. It creates some registry keys in 'HKCU\Software\Chromium'. Start with --incognito parameter to prevent saving history and cookies after program closes.
Unicode support: Yes
Path portability: No
License: BSD
How to extract: Download the "Portable" ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch IronPortable.exe.

XP/Vista is no longer supported but the last release version 49 is available.
Similar/alternative apps: Chromium Portable, Google Chrome Portable
What's new?
  • New browser interface.
  • Bug-/Security fixes.

Just noting that Iron Portable and SRWare Iron Portable, as well as GoogleChromePortable and X-Chromium, create these registry keys:

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Google
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Google\Chrome
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Google\Chrome\Extensions

HKU\*\Software\Google
HKU\*\Software\Google\Chrome
HKU\*\Software\Google\Chrome\Extensions

Also note that the HKLM key is hidden in regedit. I can see it being created using Regshot and get to it and delete it with an alternate registry editor. I don't know how the key is protected. (Any info appreciated.)

The only Chromium browser that doesn't create these keys is Chromium Portable (http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=2169).

They also create the following folders/files:

C:\Users\*\AppData\Local\Chromium
C:\Users\*\AppData\Local\Chromium\User Data
C:\Users\*\AppData\Local\Chromium\User Data\Crashpad
C:\Users\*\AppData\Local\Chromium\User Data\Crashpad\metadata
C:\Users\*\AppData\Local\Chromium\User Data\Crashpad\reports
C:\Users\*\AppData\Local\Chromium\User Data\Crashpad\settings.dat

random17: thanks for the info but, as that addresses multiple programs and not just Iron, posts like that really belong in forums.

CherryTree produces great formatted HTML export. It's fully customisable after-the-fact, with the included styles.css. Embedded files, images and the HTML files are stored separately from each other.

To disable 'Start Screen' go to "Settings"-"Advanced" and uncheck "Show 'Start Screen' when Bandizip starts".
To revert to the old tool-bar go to "View"-"Toolbar" and select "Old".
