Privacy Browser

Privacy Browser is an open source Android web browser focused on user privacy. It is released under the GPLv3+ license. The source code is available from git.stoutner.com.

The standard version is available on F-Droid, Google Play, XDA Labs, and the Amazon Appstore. The free version has all the features of the standard version with the addition of a banner ad across the bottom of the screen. It is available on Google Play, XDA Labs, and the Amazon Appstore.

By default, JavaScript, cookies, DOM storage, and ads are disabled. Users may enable these features on-the-fly or use domain settings to automatically enable them when visiting a specified domain.

Privacy Browser supports easy integration with Tor when Orbot is installed.

Currently, Privacy Browser uses Android’s System WebView to render web pages. As such, it works best if WebView is up to date.

Warning: Privacy Browser is susceptible to MITM (Man In The Middle) attacks when browsing insecure websites from devices running Android KitKat (version 4.4.x, API 19).

The Git repository can be cloned by running the following command:

git clone git://git.stoutner.com/git/PrivacyBrowser.git

There is also an Android.mk repository for integrating Privacy Browser into ROMs.
