Spark Browser by Baidu is a web browser based on Chromium, the project which also powers Google Chrome, SRWare Iron and other Chrome-like browsers currently available.
The functionality of Chrome and Spark are very similar, but Baidu has added many new features and given its graphical user interface a big refresh.
The control bar of Spark Browser includes quick access to bookmarks, downloads and a page zoom-in/zoom-out feature. It also integrates mouse gestures which can control different things like opening and closing browser tabs. Unfortunately you may not yet configure new gestures.
Another addition which Spark Browser boosts is a torrent client and an online media download feature. You can also create web page screenshots which can crop a part or all of a screenshot.
Baidu's Spark Browser looks great and provides a few features which Google has (as of yet) refused to integrate into Google Chrome.Spark Browser features and highlights:
