Installs, shows GUI, functions AFTER a command line switch is added in the desktop icon's properties box. Browsing is kind of slow and jerky.
What does not
Browser does not work at all after initial install, needs icon link modification. Then, if both this Windows browser and a Linux browser are open a the same time, pull-down menus may stick and show in both browsers.
What was not tested
Other Chromium command line switches besides the one described here in the "Extra Comments" box.
As is the case with SRWare's Iron browser, a Chromium command switch (flag) has to be manually added in the Comodo Dragon desktop icon properties box before the browser will work: right-click on the icon, then at the end of the "Command:" line, after "Dragon.lnk", add one space, then "--no-sandbox" (without the quote marks). Close the properties box and restart browser. Although the browser then works, it pops up a warning notice saying that you are using an unsupported command line flag and that stability and security will suffer. For those who wish to experiment with more Chromium browser command-line switches, a list is at: http://peter.sh/experiments/chromium-command-line-switches/ Dragon's initial install process shows that Adobe Flash Player can also be installed (Internet connection required), thus enabling streaming video (like YouTube) to be played. Bookmarks can be imported but not directly from a Linux browser, as it will not find it. In that case first export the bookmarks as a .html file to your Linux Documents or Downloads folder, then start Dragon, enable "Show bookmarks bar", right-click on it. then click on Bookmark manager, then "Organise", select "import bookmarks from .html file", then navigate to wherever you saved the exported file. A large file may take a few minutes to install.
