**** Work in progress ****
Cromite’s goal is to
- limit the features built into the browser that can be used as a platform for tracking users’ habits, and, if it is not technically possible, disable them and leave it up to the user to choose whether to re-enable them
- limit the close integration between the browser and its manufacturer
- not let the excellent research work done by csagan5 with Bromite be lost
In addition, Cromite would like to promote greater integration with other non-profit, open source browsers, encouraging closer collaboration with others, and attempt to integrate them directly into Chromium once they have reached an appropriate level of maturity.
Be aware there’s no 32-bit support for Android and it’s kinda a beta. But it has support for Windows though.
I’m not sure where Bromite or a fork of it fits into the mobile android browser ecosystem. For other community maintained alternatives there’s FOSS Browser or Privacy Browser. For a good high security model, there’s TOR or Brave.
I’ve just become skeptical of those who aren’t using a webview wrapper due to the occasional tendency for projects to become unmaintained, which becomes a security liability. At least with something like Brave there is a clear monitization model which indicates longevity.
this is great i loved using bromite to separate my web app cookies and my default browser cookies. super happy that the project is coming back to life.
