Russian Internet giant Yandex has launched the new version of its Chromium-based browser offering a twist on the traditional format.

The new test version of the browser aims to strip the clutter out of using the Web and help the Russian search company stand up to Google.
The system is designed to put almost all the focus on websites and as little as possible on browser controls like buttons and search bars.
For example, tabs that house individual websites are moved down to the bottom of the page, reflecting their subordinate status.
The beta also includes a bunch of privacy-related features for those concerned about having full control over the data they share online.
