At a high level:
- Process per tab security model, with each tab owning it's own in-memory
state (cache, cookies, local storage, hsts db etc...).
- Efficiently integrated HTTPS Everywhere rules.
- Addresses some fingerprint-ability issues: Disabled geolocation, webgl,
accelerated <canvas>, static user agent, etc.
- Single tap to start a bundled Tor binary, and properly configure the
browsers proxy settings. Gave a fair amount of thought to UX and polish.
It's still early days, only builds for Android at the moment. Nobody has
seriously reviewed the code or black box tested. Lots of fingerprint
mitigation work still remains. Hoping to get feedback and suggestions for
improvement, and help.
