Iridium Browser - A browser securing your privacy. That’s it.

  •        160

Iridium is a free, open, and libre browser modification of the Chromium code base, with privacy being enhanced in several key areas. Automatic transmission of partial queries, keywords, metrics to central services inhibited and only occurs with consent. In addition, all our builds are reproducible, and modifications are auditable, setting the project ahead of other secure browser providers.

There are many browsers out there. Chrome is fast, stable, and user-friendly but does not meet many organizations’ demands for privacy. Since the tight integration with its inventor (Google) makes many things easier, it does not comply to restrictive data environments. Iridium is not another new browser from scratch. It takes the Chromium code base, which is also used for the official Chrome browser, and enhances its security and sets certain policies by default. There are many forks of Chromium-based browsers, yet, in our opinion, they failed in many other key areas important for adoption.

inox-patchset - Inox patchset tries to provide a minimal Chromium based browser with focus on privacy by disabling data transmission to Google

  •    Shell

Inox patchset is applied on the chromium source code and tries to prevent data transmission to Google to get a minimal Chromium based browser. The patches are split up based on features, so it's easy to patch only a subset of them. It is possible that some data is still transmitted (but down to a minimum) this is because Chromium is a quite large and complex codebase which changes each day.

ungoogled-chromium - Modifications to Google Chromium for removing Google integration and enhancing privacy, control, and transparency

  •    Python

A number of features or background services communicate with Google servers despite the absence of an associated Google account or compiled-in Google API keys. Furthermore, the normal build process for Chromium involves running Google's own high-level commands that invoke many scripts and utilities, some of which download and use pre-built binaries provided by Google. Even the final build output includes some pre-built binaries. Fortunately, the source code is available for everything. ungoogled-chromium should not be considered a fork of Chromium. The main reason for this is that a fork is associated with more significant deviations from the Chromium, such as branding, configuration formats, file locations, and other interface changes. ungoogled-chromium will not modify the Chromium browser outside of the project's goals.

freshplayerplugin - ppapi2npapi compatibility layer

  •    C

PPAPI-host NPAPI-plugin adapter. As you know, Adobe have suspended further development of Flash player plugin for GNU/Linux. Latest available as an NPAPI plugin version 11.2 will get security updates for five years (since its release on May 4th, 2012), but further development have been ceased. Fortunately or not, newer versions are still available for Linux as a part of Chrome browser, where Flash comes bundled in a form of PPAPI plugin. PPAPI or Pepper Plugin API is an interface promoted by Chromium/Chrome team for browser plugins. It's NPAPI-inspired yet significantly different API which have every conceivable function plugin may want. Two-dimensional graphics, OpenGL ES, font rendering, network access, audio, and so on. It's huge, there are 111 groups of functions, called interfaces which todays Chromium browser offers to plugins. Although specs are not final yet, and new interface versions are arising, with some older ones getting deleted; rate of change have significantly slowed down.

hindsight - Internet history forensics for Google Chrome/Chromium

  •    Python

Hindsight is a free tool for analyzing web artifacts. It started with the browsing history of the Google Chrome web browser and has expanded to support other Chromium-based applications (with more to come!). Hindsight can parse a number of different types of web artifacts, including URLs, download history, cache records, bookmarks, autofill records, saved passwords, preferences, browser extensions, HTTP cookies, and Local Storage records (HTML5 cookies). Once the data is extracted from each file, it is correlated with data from other history files and placed in a timeline. The only field you are required to complete is "Profile Path". This is the location of the Chrome profile you want to analyze (the default profile paths for different OSes is listed at the bottom of this page). Click "Run" and you'll be taken to the results page in where you can save the results to a spreadsheet (or other formats).

privacybadger - Privacy Badger is a browser extension that automatically learns to block invisible trackers

  •    Javascript

Privacy Badger is a browser extension that automatically learns to block invisible trackers. Instead of keeping lists of what to block, Privacy Badger learns by watching which domains appear to be tracking you as you browse the Web. Privacy Badger sends the Do Not Track signal with your browsing. If trackers ignore your wishes, your Badger will learn to block them. Privacy Badger starts blocking once it sees the same tracker on three different websites.

emacs_chrome - A Chromium "clone" of It's All Text for spawning an editor to edit text areas in browsers

  •    Javascript

Edit with Emacs is an addon for webextension compatible browsers like Google's Chrome(ium), Opera or Firefox that allows you to edit text areas on your browser in a more full featured editor. It does this in conjunction with an "Edit Server" which services requests by the browser. This is because extensions cannot spawn new processes as a security measure. The extension packages native elisp version that can be run inside GNU Emacs itself, just follow the instructions from the options page of the extension. It has been known to work with GNU Emacs and Aquamacs (MacOS); it is presently not compatible with XEmacs.

remote-browser - A low-level browser automation framework built on top of the Web Extensions API standard

  •    Javascript

Remote Browser is a library for controlling web browsers like Chrome and Firefox programmatically using JavaScript. You've likely heard of similar browser automation frameworks before, such as Puppeteer and Selenium. Much like these other projects, Remote Browser can be used to accomplish a wide variety of tasks relating to UI testing, Server Side Rendering (SSR), and web scraping. What makes Remote Browser different from these other libraries is that it's built using standard cross-browser compatible technologies, and its primary goal is to facilitate interactions with existing APIs rather than to create a new one of its own. Remote Browser provides a minimalistic and lightweight framework for automating browsers using vanilla JavaScript, HTML browsing contexts, and the Web Extensions API. If you're already familiar with these technologies, then you already know almost everything that you need to use Remote Browser. If not, then there are vast learning resources out there, like The Mozilla Developer Network (MDN), which can get you up to speed in no time. Be sure to check out the Introduction, the Interactive Tour, and Usage Examples to learn about how Remote Browser makes it easy to use these technologies.
