Dooble: privacy oriented web browser

Dooble is a Qt5 based web browser with a major focus towards online privacy and security. It also comes with a list of extra features which you wouldn’t expect from a web browser, e.g., an integrated file manager of its own. Or consider the in-built desktop which serves as an user-level interface to the operating system. Definitely Dooble¬†deviates from the Unix philosophy of one program doing one thing right but it’s privacy oriented features are good. In addition, it’s a lightweight browser with a clean interface. Thanks to ads and script blocking by default, it provides a breezy browsing experience. And it doesn’t lack in settings either. As it uses Qt, Dooble can run on several Linux desktop environments as well as multiple operating systems.
