#prowser - a web browser with privacy and speed in mind

(browsing → no JavaScript)

This project is in development and has not been audited.

I think we need a new web browser which pledges to approach the web problem on the grounds of simplicity, stability, performance, and security, and declares a subset of the web standards as blessed and implements only those. I wouldn't invite JavaScript.



  1. usability: be an alternative to chromium and firefox. and still be usable by normal users (no cli browser)

  2. privacy: defaults to protect privacy

  3. speed: be as fast as possible
