    Hey Roky,

    Are you still using it and is it worth a download?
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?

    Yeah, I still use it on my EEEPCs. It is my primary browser in AntiX on those Netbooks. It runs faster and renders videos quicker on those little netbooks for me. Google Browser ext work in it. Plus I like that I can run it static.

    Whether or not it is worth it for you is YMMV kind of thing I guess.

    Iron is basically useless from what I've read. According to at least one person who did a diff on the source code, the "extra" privacy it affords are options already available in Chrome. Albeit the versions they looked at are a bit older now, I doubt it's changed much.
