DuckDuckGo is working on a desktop version of Privacy Browser


DuckDuckGo is working on a desktop version of its Privacy Browser, which so far is only available for Android devices, iPhones and iPads. Gabriel Weinberg, the company’s CEO and founder, reports that the web browser should not contain complicated settings or misleading warnings, but should provide a simple browsing experience that at the same time respects the user’s privacy.

Rather than using a Chromium fork, DuckDuckGo chose to build the desktop app around the os-based rendering engines (like on mobile). This can cut out a lot of “unnecessary clutter” that has accumulated in the major browsers over the years. For example, the new web browser would not only offer more privacy and have a sleeker appearance than Chrome, but also be significantly faster than the Google browser.

For now, the company has only shown the macOS version, which is being tested through a closed beta. Weinberg has confirmed on Twitter that a variant for Windows is also being worked on. It is not clear when the browser should be available, but users are expected to try it out next year.
