Secure browser

As a long time fan of the Ghostery browser extension I was interested to note they'd been purchased by a German company called Cliqz for incorporation into their Firefox derived browser, a product in part owned by Mozilla. The browser is apparently designed to comply with tight German privacy legislation and as a result  doesn't make note of your browsing or search history and doesn't pass it on to third parties.


Cliqz Browser


Having tested it out it seems quite quick if a little spartan looking, in order to maintain its security level it doesn't support any third party plug ins or extensions, but does come with an integrated ad blocker which you will need to turn on  if you want it and Ghostery. The Ad Blocker is a beta and doesn't seem to allow any user customisation but works OK out of the box. As with most current browsers it has the ability to open links in Incognito or as they say New Forget window. It also has an integrated Video recorder that will allow you to rip You-tube vids, not that you would of course that's in breach of the T & C and totally wrong.


If you like the idea of a fast bare bones browser with enhanced security it's well worth a look, if your browser toolbar is stuffed to the gunnels with  Extension control buttons less so.


I quite like it.
