Gngr: A New Web Browser Focused On Privacy

A group of developers have started writing their own open-source web browser that primarily is designed to increase web privacy and greater security.

While the code has yet to drop on Gngr, it's said to be coming after the initial release. Those interested in more information on this privacy-focused web-browser can visit Gngr.info. Read more
