Yandex.Browser is a new browser based on Chromium from Russian search giant Yandex. It offers the same clean simplicity as Google's Chrome, with a few differences.

The similarities to Chrome are more obvious than the differences. There is the same combined search and address bar, and the general layout is the same.

When you open a new tab, however, a drop down panel of suggested or most-visited sited appears. This can be easily edited. When you type into Yandex.Browser's search bar, as well as suggested addresses, you can also choose from one of four search engines. Next to the search bar there is also a button that takes you to the Russian language Yandex home.

Overall, Yandex.Browser is fast and easy to use, but there is little reason to recommend it over Chrome or other Chromium based browsers unless you use Yandex's search and email services. If Yandex.Browser develops more of its own personality and features it could be a serious alternative browser.

As an official Yandex product, Yandex.Browser is guaranteed a some success. Outside of Russia, it would be improved if links to the Russian Yandex site were internationalized.

Built with Chromium, Yandex.Browser is a solid browser that looks modern and is easy to use. It's ideal for people who use Yandex services.

Smart yet simple browser for all devices

Yandex.Browser is a simple and easy-to-use internet browser. Its clutter-free interface gives you plenty of space for viewing webpages. The minimalist design allows you to focus on more important things.

Yandex.Browser can translate both individual words and entire webpages to and from English, French, German, Ukrainian, Turkish and a number of other languages.

Yandex.Browser will help you quickly call numbers found on the internet. Just one click on the number on the site and Yandex.Browser for mobile phones will dial it on your smartphone.

Use Yandex.Browser on any computer, smartphone, or tablet. Your bookmarks and Tableau are available everywhere and load automatically after logging into the browser.
