Bromite Browser – a Chromium fork with support for ad blocking and enhanced privacy. Bromite aims at providing a no-clutter browsing experience without privacy-invasive features and with the addition of a fast ad-blocking engine.

Bromite is currently built for ARM, ARM64 and x86 and for the Android SDK versions 19 and 21; Bromite SystemWebView is provided as well (SDK21+). For every Bromite build you can always find a matching vanilla Chromium build which is used for example to verify which issues are specific to Bromite or not.

Nyxt – a keyboard-oriented, extensible web-browser designed for power users. Conceptually inspired by Emacs and Vim, it has familiar key-bindings (Emacs, vi, CUA), is fully configurable and extensible in Lisp, and has powerful features for productivity.

Features:
– Fast tab switching – Switch easily between your open tabs via fuzzy search.
– Multiple selection – Commands can accept multiple inputs, allowing you to quickly perform an operation against multiple objects. In the example below we search for penguins, and only open up links that have the text “animal” within them.
– Powerful bookmarks – Bookmark a page with tags. Search bookmarks with compound queries. Capture more data about your bookmarks, and group and wrangle them in any way you like.
– Multi tab search – Search multiple tabs at the same time, and view all the results in a single window. Jump quickly through your open tabs to find what you need.
– History as a tree – History is represented as a tree that you can traverse. Smarter than the “forwards-backwards” abstraction found in other browsers, the tree makes sure you never lose track of where you’ve been.

WebPositive (or Web+) – the Haiku native web browser. One part of its name is a tip of the hat to BeOS’ simple NetPositive, the other points to its modern foundation: the WebKit. This open source HTML rendering library is at the heart of other mainstream browsers as well, like Safari of Mac OS X and Google’s Chrome. By using the ever evolving WebKit, Web+ will be able to keep up with new web technologies.

Webpositive supports most HTML5 features, including ‘audio’ and ‘video’ support, while geolocation support is still being worked on. WebPositive does not currently support any form of plugins, although developer Stephan Aßmus has suggested that he may look into plugin support in the future.
