Most of us use Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome or Opera to browse the Internet. Sure, there are many alternative browsers available for Windows. One lesser know browser you may want to check out is Citrio. If you’re not happy with your browsers download manager and proxy handling then Citrio is sure to interest you.

Citrio browser review


Citrio is a clean and fast web browser which has several additional features inside it. You’ll find this browser similar to Google Chrome,  however, many shortcomings of Google Chrome have been overcome in Citrio. It has a powerful yet intelligent download manager, which can detect and resolve torrent related downloads. Thus while using this browser, you do not need an extra torrent client to finish your download.


The next cool feature we noticed in this browser was the proxy widget, which you can use for browsing. This is a convenient widget and thus there’s no need to set up a proxy server configurations every time, just pick up one of the added options and start surfing the Web. You can find the proxy widget in the right side of the browser before the Settings icon.


Thus this browser could be great alternative if you’re looking for a smart downloading browser. The rest of the features of this browser are as follows:

  • Give you ability to browse the web faster and run complex web apps in handy manner
  • Simplicity in style
  • Built-in malware and phishing protection; thus nice in security
  • Download manager supports pause and resume for downloads
  • Single click action for downloads with Start all and Pause all buttons

  1. Sheet Bice

    From Softpedia comments: “This comes with a VERY old pepperflash.” and “After a while the torrentdownloader stopped working. The new tab Citrio with a searchbox from ASK can’t be changed. After uninstalling there was still an entry in the autostart section, the citrio updater. On top of that, there were SIX tasks in windows/tasks and System32/Tasks left behind. The offline/standalone installer doesn’t manage to install the whole package, with updates etc etc..AND it fails to uninstall because it also failed to install an uninstaller. The ONLY thing I liked about it was the video downloader, and the torrent downloader while it was still working..But that is not enough reason to install this huge pile of garbage.”

    Don’t know about the rest of the stuff Sheet Bice said because the fact it wouldn’t install unless you agreed to the Ask stuff was enough for me to cancel the install and delete it.

    What about Torch Browser?

  4. ^^ Yeah, It asks for ASK toolbar to install, you can simply deny it 🙂

    This is not what it is promoted to be: it is a lot more as Bice said. It leaves behind nuisance things and you click the ‘DECLINE’ button and you get nothing. I believe there is a small check box inside that giant Ask toolbar thing but it is far overshadowed by the big decline/accept at the bottom. It is not trying to sneak in anything like that but it is only really set up to install with no consideration for the end user’s ultimate computer security or desires with all the tasks and such. It was hard to root out since it left things behind the revo uninstaller or built in windows uninstaller could not even locate to take out. It is based on being kept forever- for that, it is ok, I use chromium in Linux and like it fine, so if you want these few nice features for privacy/anonymity it is a good addition to the field
