Min – a smarter, faster web browser based on the Chroimum project.

The main features are:
– Information from DuckDuckGo in the search bar.
– Built-in ad and tracker blocking
– Fuzzy search
– Full-text search for visited pages
– Reading list
– Tabs improvements (tabs open to the right, and fade out when inactive).
– Dark theme

Tabs in Min take up less space, giving you more room to browse the web. Pages you haven’t looked at in a while fade out, letting you see what’s important, and Focus Mode hides your other tabs to prevent you from getting distracted.

The searchbar answers your questions immediately, with information from DuckDuckGo including Wikipedia entries and more.

Tabs in Min open next to the current tab, so you’ll never lose your place. When you have too many tabs, you can easily split them into groups to help you stay organized.

Min lets you decide whether you want to see ads or not. And when you’re using a slow or expensive internet connection, it lets you block scripts and images, so pages load faster and use less data.
