    I am the developer of Privacy Browser, an privacy focused browser for Android currently based on Android's `WebView`.

    A user of Privacy Browser is a member of this forum and suggested I might post here to receive feedback and feature suggestions.

    Privacy Browser disables JavaScript, cookies, and DOM storage by default. There are controls to enable these features automatically by domain as well as on-the-fly controls to enable them temporarily while browsing. It also supports pinning of SSL certificates by domain, and integrates with Orbot for browsing through the Tor network.

    A list of planned features are available in the roadmap and the issue tracker.

    Are there any other suggestions member of the forum have?

    Thanks for the information.
    Bought the browser for a pound to support the effort.

    Privacy Browser runs on Android 4.4 (KitKat) or higher, although there is a MITM vulnerability on Android 4.4 that can be exploited if the web server is not configured correctly.

    Hi

    I just tested your browser and found that my ip address is leaking when I use Tor. I'm using browserleaks.com and whoer.net to check. I noticed that webrtc is enabled.

    Orfox has no such problem

    Also, it can't block social media plugins despite having Fanboy's Annoyance List. You can test this at www.engadget.com or www.gizmodo.com

    Can you fix them? Thanks
