Yandex.Browser is an Internet browser developed by Russian tech giant, Yandex. It has been developed from the same open source which brought Google Chrome into existence, Chromium. Also, it has taken some features from another popular web browser, Opera. The tabs are placed uniquely at the bottom of the browser. The utility offers a transparent interface to the users that hide address bar and bookmarks menu. Also, the title bar of the browser is semi-transparent and imitates the shade of the visited site’s layout. It also offers Opera-like turbo mode that can increase page loading speed for low bandwidth networks. Turbo mode is enabled by downloading an extension. During turbo mode, the data is routed through Yandex’s servers which compresses incoming data and then send it to the targeted device. The browser also supports custom backgrounds that allow you to change the background of the browser as per your preference. Yandex.Browser can use the extensions of both Opera and Chrome which can be downloaded from their respective stores. This browser runs on systems with XP or newer Windows versions.
