Additional Comments

Left-clicking on Iron's desktop icon opens its GUI, but it's non-functional as first installed and has to be modified: * right-click on the icon and then left-click on Properties in the SRWare Iron properties box; * select the "Basic" tab if not already displayed; * on the "Command:" line, after "/SRWare\Iron.lnk", add (space) "--no-sandbox" (without the quote marks) * in the "Permissions" tab, make sure the "Execute:" line has "Allow executing file as program" checked; * left-click the "Close" button. Left-clicking the icon will then run the browser and access the Internet, but a warning message pops up saying: "You are using an unsupported command line flag. Stability and security will suffer." Iron is quite slow under Wine, so slow that it may time-out when trying to access some sites like YouTube. Having it open in Wine also seems to slow other Linux applications. Bookmarks can be imported, but not by clicking "Import bookmarks and settings" via the "Customize" icons at top right: * first, export any bookmarks from another browser as a .html file to your /home/(name)/Downloads or /Documents folder; * then access Iron's bookmark manager (eg: right-click on the bookmarks bar, after enabling it in settings, Appearance), click on "Organize", then "Import bookmarks from HTML file", then navigate to where you saved the bookmarks.html file in your home directory. * click "Open" and the bookmarks will slowly be imported, taking a few minutes. As Iron is derived from Chromium, there are many Chromium command line switches that may or may not work with Iron; one list is at:
