    I am curious if anyone is using this browser. If so, what are your thoughts? I assume its best to use it in conjunction with the Mullvad app installed on your device?

    Personally, I like the idea behind this browser. I use Brave browser and a hardened version of firefox.
    but the problem is that I lack synchronization between devices. I use a desktop Mac, a laptop with Linux and an iPhone. I need a sync. In mullvad it is not possible to synchronize.

    Anyone established yet if it’s possible to set Mulvad as the default browser?

    Sorry @1PW it’s a bit too abstruse for me.
    I can’t readily see if it can be done for Linux and not Windows or the other way around, or it can’t be done at all.
    Or perhaps it’s me having a senior moment.
