SuperBird is a fast and secure Internet browser based on the same source code used for Google Chrome, except for some minor modifications. SuperBird does not send information about your browsing habits to Google or to any other site. This browser has been developed taking special care of both the navigation speed and the security of the user's data.

Of course, the program looks very similar to Google Chrome. By default, SuperBird’s start page is a "New Tab" page which allows you to access your most frequently visited websites with one click. In addition, the program allows you to browse several webpages simultaneously thanks to its tabbed system, just like the new versions of the most widely used Internet browsers. Besides, the program's installer is capable of importing the settings of your other browsers for you (Mozilla Firefox, for instance).

SuperBird is also capable of managing your bookmarks, your browsing history, and your downloads. It allows you to tweak any of both its simple and advanced settings, just like with any other Internet browser. The program offers you easy access to the list of your recently closed pages, so that you can recover any of them in a snap. This is a very useful feature, especially when you have closed a webpage by accident. Moreover, you can view the source code of the current webpage, or save the full page to your hard disk, among other powerful features.

Finally, I must mention that all the extensions available for Google Chrome are also supported by SuperBird. You can enable or disable any of these extensions at any moment. The program even includes a tool called "Task Manager", which allows you to monitor the CPU, memory, and network usage levels of SuperBird, any active extension, and of the active webpage.

To sum up, SuperBird is a fast, lightweight and secure Internet browser which offers you all the most helpful features available in other major browsers. Besides, as it is based on the same source code used for Google Chrome, they are 100% compatible.
