Both of the browsers offer the added benefit of enhanced privacy but serve rather different purposes, so let’s explore each for their strengths.

I’m glad to share the captures for your own comparisons; just ping me via email or Twitter if you’d like copies. Notice in Figure 5 the significant differences between counts specific to hosts, files, images, credentials, sessions, DNS, and Parameters.
|FIGURE 5: Comparing the differences between Aviator and Chrome browser session network traffic|
Supporting statistics as derived from results seen in Figure 5:
120% less host contact in Aviator capture vs. Chrome capture
69% less file interaction (download of certs, gifs, etc.) in Aviator capture vs. Chrome capture
86% fewer images presented (ads) in Aviator capture vs. Chrome capture
63% fewer total sessions in the Aviator capture vs. the Chrome capture
69% fewer DNS lookups in the Aviator capture vs. the Chrome capture
Hopefully you get the point. :-)
These differences between default configurations of Aviator and Chrome are achieved as follows:
- Aviator's privacy and security safeguards are preconfigured, active and enabled by default
- Aviator eliminates hidden tracking and uses the Disconnect extension to block privacy-destroying tracking from advertisers and social media companies
- WhiteHat is not partnering with advertisers or selling click data
- Unwanted access is prevented as Aviator blocks internal address space to prevent malicious Web pages from hitting your websites, routers, and firewalls
