Orbitum is a Chromium-based web browser that has some unique features specifically intended for social networking. The program has the same slim interface that characterizes Chrome, and it is as easy to use. Luckily, it also inherits great speed and stability from its web-rendering engine.
Orbitum’s most outstanding characteristic is its seamless integration with two social networks: Facebook, Vkontakte, and Odnoklassniki. In this regard, the browser has a built-in chat, which is accessible from a sidebar and, therefore, allows you to interact with other people while you are browsing other pages.
Another feature that surely deserves mentioning is the Quick Launch toolbar. This panel lets you create a list of your most visited websites and open all of them with a single click. In addition, the browser comes with its own audio player. Last but not least, there is one of my favorite features: the possibility to download torrents without the need to use any external software. As to other features, Orbitum is very similar to other Chromium-based browsers. Needless to say, it supports installing extensions to enable other functions.
On the other hand, the program has a disadvantage inherent to belonging to the Chrome family. It may collect user information.
In general, Orbitum is another browser of the Chromium family. Choosing one or the other depends on your specific needs and preferences, so it is recommendable to try some of them, as it is even possible that you like to use more than one, depending on the purpose. Fortunately, the product is free to use.
