The browser is up for download at 1stbrowser.com. But it can also be found bundled with other software, especially adware-type programs that you should always try to avoid and remove them when infected. But let us get back to 1stBrowser. The website and software bundling are the two known means of disseminating it. Those of you who have not tried this browser should be surprised to learn that it is identical to the Google Chrome web browser. Now this is nothing new since we have seen plenty of modified browsers based on one particular one. 1stBrowser uses Cromium as its basis, which is why it looks identical to Chrome.

In any case, if you had Chrome before, and you accidentally or purposefully installed 1stBrowser, it will automatically be set as the default browser of your computer. It is really annoying that the user does not have a say in the matter. Inattentive users might even get confused and start using 1stBrowser thinking it was Chrome. The main difference that sets them apart is the fact that 1stBrowser has been modified and is set to track your surfing habits in order to present you with user-specific content. It is clear that the developers are in the business of making money via commercial advertisements, and 1stBrowser is merely a clone of Chrome, just with more ads. Thus, we suggest that you remove 1stBrowser and install Chrome or any other reliable browser.
The browser has been developed by a company called SIEN S.A., which is a known adware developer. You can check other products developed by this company at its website at Sien.com. Apart from developing 1stBrowser, the company has also released applications, such as Yappyz, Iminent, and a few others. Note that the aforementioned applications are considered to be adware, so you should remove them.
