CometBird is not just another web browser. It has characteristics that make it outstand among similar applications. The similarities between this program and Mozilla Firefox are apparently not confined to their visual appearance because these programs also seem to be based on the same engine. Thus, CometBird inherits the stability and speed that has been made Firefox a favorite among users. In addition, Firefox users can easily switch to CometBird without having to learn anything new.

The browser is very lightweight. Moreover, taking into account that speed is a critical aspect when you are browsing the web, the claim that CometBird is even faster than Mozilla is really something to consider. Just like Mozilla, CometBird supports add-ons. Moreover, there is one that seems to have been specially designed for this browser, called UI enhancement. This extension expands CometBird’s functionalities by allowing you to create tab groups (like in Opera) and translate words or whole pages (like in Chrome). In addition, it lets you use colors to identify tabs and create notes about webpages. Perhaps the most publicized of this browser’s characteristics is that it can synchronize bookmarks by keeping an online record of them. Regarding this function, its developers claim that, unlike Chrome, which has been accused of violating their users’ privacy by requesting too much information about them, CometBird does not upload any sensitive information.

CometBird provides really powerful download features. Besides having the built-in download manager that is also present in Firefox, CometBird can download multiple types of online multimedia contents without the need to install any extension.
