Min: fresh web browser in JS

min

Min is a new browser written in Javascript. It is privacy aware right from the default search engine which is DuckDuckGo. There are several improvements to conventional tab management and searching. The bloat-free and clean interface delivers a very smooth browsing experience.

Features

  • Search uses DuckDuckGo by default
  • Fuzzy search to find matches faster with less typing
  • Tabbed browsing
  • Bokmarks
  • Privacy – in-built ad, tracker, script and image blocker
  • Reader view with reading list
  • Focus mode (shows only the current tab)
  • Supports Linux, Windows and Mac
  • Open source and free

Tabbed-browsing enhancements

  • Click to open search (using DuckDuckGo)
  • Swipe up on tab to close it
  • Tabs fade out if not opened for a while

Min is very fast because of its minimal approach. How memory usage is as high as Google Chrome.

The browser is under heavy development and lacks a lot of advanced features one may expect.

Installation

Packages are available for Ubuntu (both 32/64-bits). Download the one you need and install it. If the entry for min doesn’t show up in your start menu, run:
