The better Google Chrome: Iron respects your privacy!

Soon after Google released the new Chrome Browser, I installed and tested it, and I really liked the speed of the browser and the concept of handling each individual tab as a sandbox. But I got concerned about my privacy, so I stopped using Chrome a few days later.
Now I found a Chrome based browser which respects the privacy. It is called Iron. Read here what they say about there release regarding privacy:
