ProtonMail – an encrypted e-mail service, which doesn’t let read messages by people other than a recipient and a sender.

ProtonMail is the world’s largest provider of encrypted email service with over a million users. The ProtonMail secure email application for Android allows you to easily send encrypted messages from your mobile device thanks to the integration of PGP end-to-end encryption. ProtonMail uses a modern user interface with a set of innovative features such as individual gestures on a screen and ability to send messages with a set date of removal.

From 2013, when CERN scientists founded ProtonMail, we (developers) were joined by citizens from around the world who support our mission to protect privacy on the web. Our mobile application was built thanks to a record campaign in which we raised $ 550,000. With the ProtonMail app, you can now create a free account with the ProtonMail inbox and start using a secure future box.

The notable features are:
– Messages are stored on ProtonMail servers in encrypted format. They are also transmitted in encrypted format between our servers and user devices.
– ProtonMail’s zero access architecture means that your data is encrypted in a way that makes it inaccessible to us. Data is encrypted on the client side using an encryption key that we do not have access to.
– We use only secure implementations of AES, RSA, along with OpenPGP. Furthermore, all of the cryptographic libraries we use are open source. By using open source libraries, we can guarantee that the encryption algorithms we are using do not have clandestinely built in back doors.

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.
