3.x Series Roadmap

The release of Privacy Browser 2.17 marks the end of the 2.x series (unless a serious bug is discovered that needs to be addressed). The 3.0 release will implement the long awaited tabbed browsing. Following that, all other features that can be implemented without Privacy WebView will makeup the body of the 3.x series. At any time, users can see which features are planned for the next release and the list of all remaining features for the 3.x series.

With the 4.x series, the plan is to create a rolling fork of Android’s WebView, called Privacy WebView, that will add missing privacy features. Once the 4.x series is implemented, I plan to start working on Privacy Browser for other platforms. My initial thought is that I can develop it using the Qt framework and QtWebEngine, which will allow me to use one code base for Linux, Windows, and macOS. However, I will do a deeper investigation of the options and make a final decision when we get closer to that point.

  1. Lack of tabbed browsing is the only thing keeping me from using this great browser all the time. Thanks for all you effort!

        1. 3.0 has been on F-Droid since April 27. Currently it has 3.0.1, which was added on May 5.
