What is Yandex Browser?

Yandex Browser is a free, fast, and secure web browser developed by Yandex. The program was designed to emphasize simplicity, distinguishing it from competing browsers such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and UC Browser. Even though the program is developed based on Chromium, it has some advanced features. For example, the address and search bar combine and blend perfectly with the overall design.

The program works quickly on different versions of the Windows operating system. Yandex Browser has a special drop-down panel that gives recommendations for websites. The system takes into account your "favorite" and most visited sites. You can even personalize this list in a few clicks. When you type in the search bar of your Internet browser, it offers options for four different search engines. The program allows you to access some Yandex services, including the search service and Yandex mailbox.

Reliable internet browser based on Chromium

Since 2014, the development team has released various updates for Linux and Windows. Regarding web search, Yandex faced stiff competition from Google and Bing. A few years ago, Yandex teamed up with Mozilla Firefox, another popular web browser, to replace Google's search engine with Yandex's default search. With constant updates, attempts to build a strong community, and regular features, the Yandex browser is trying to dominate the search and browser market. Like other options available on the Internet, Yandex is free to download. The application is developed by Yandex Search, which is a Russian corporation. The application uses the Blink web engine, which thoroughly checks the security of web pages and downloaded files with Kaspersky antivirus.

Is Yandex Browser safe?

It is worth noting that Yandex Browser is not an open-source project. As a result, users do not see the source code of the program. This makes it impossible to check what is happening behind the scenes. According to some users, Yandex gets all the necessary permissions to collect comprehensive data. It can also share this data with the authorities if the need arises. On the other hand, almost every browser does the same, and most users have no serious concerns about programs tracking their search history. Yandex web browser has several security features, including DNSCrypt, DNS spoofing protection, and automatic HTTPS support.

Why is Yandex Browser worth downloading for Windows?

Yandex Browser has all the functionality available in popular Internet browsers. The program is convenient, fast, and relatively safe. A significant advantage is that the tool has some advanced features that have become the main reason users switch to this application. For example, existing users of Yandex services find a valuable program for easy access to their accounts. Yandex Browser is developed on the Chromium platform and therefore looks quite familiar. After launching the program, you will see the same interface similar to Chrome. Since it is a lightweight application, it does not require significant system resources and works without problems on all types of PCs.
