Looking for a More Private Web Browser?


If you are searching for a more private browsing experience here are few alternative suggestions namely, Apple Safari, Brave, Mozilla Firefox and Vivaldi.

Apple Safari includes intelligent tracking prevention, private browsing, sandboxing for websites and protection from harmful sites. Using machine learning, Safari "identify advertisers and others who track your online behavior, and removes the cross site tracking data they leave behind." With private browsing your browsing history, is well, essentially erased. Safari also protects you against harmful malware ridden websites.

The Brave browser saves you money. Money that is otherwise spent to download ads and trackers. Yet even if you have unlimited mobile data or only use a desktop, "your information and time have value." Brave also plans to feature "Tor in the tab," an even more powerful browsing privacy feature.

Another fact is that "leading ad blockers still allow some ads and all trackers." Brave picks up where other browsers might leave off by blocking ads and trackers by default so your browsing experience is fundamentally faster and safer." Brave also reduces "your chances of being infected by malware, ransomware and spyware, which in 2016, increased in general by 132%. 

Mozilla Firefox browser allows you to browse without a trace with private browsing which "automatically erases your online info like passwords, cookies and history from your computer." With Firefox Private Browsing you can shrug off those intrusive trackers which can slow down your browsing speed and collect private info. Hidden trackers are blocked automatically.

Vivaldi recently won the Web User magazine's top-rated browser and Gold Award. Vivaldi simplifies managing your online privacy and makes it very straightforward. Other significant privacy features are the abilility to "view my history visually, and to clear my private data in one click."
