Programs that respect your privacy

February 2017 Roadmap

I thought it would be valuable to lay down a development roadmap.

When I first envisioned Privacy Browser, I thought of a browser that would make it easy to disable JavaScript and other privacy sensitive settings and turn them on only for websites I trusted. With automatic controls by domain, it feels that Privacy Browser will have matured sufficiently to bump the version number to 2.0.

Most Android browsers’ implementation of tabs are more like quick bookmarks with large thumbnails than real tabbed browsing. My plan is to use a TabView (similar to the Guide and About sections). There are several complexities with doing so, including managing separate privacy settings for each tab, that make this more difficult that might initially appear. That is why the implementation is pushed all the way to version 3.0. But the final result should be a fully usable tabbed interface that scales well from small phones all the way to laptops and desktops.

  1. I love what your doing here with privacy browser . But there are a few concerns I want to address like the ability to hide WEBRTC. Internal ip address is still known and could possibly pin point the location of a user even if they were using tor.
