The research has shown that this potentially unwanted program has been developed using the Firefox browser engine, which means that Ebon Browser might share some functional and interface similarities with the said popular Internet browser. However, bear in mind that it does not mean that Ebon Browser is more trustworthy than Mozilla Firefox.
