Wexond is an extensible and privacy-focused web browser with a totally different user experience, built on top of Electron, TypeScript, React and styled-components. It aims to be fast, private, beautiful, extensible and functional.

Features

  • Wexond Shield - Browse the web without any ads and don't let websites to track you. Thanks to the Wexond Shield, websites can load even 2 times faster!
  • Beautiful and minimalistic UI - The address bar is hidden in Overlay to take less space, but it doesn't impact on usability in any way. It's even better! Give it a shot
  • Tab groups - Easily group tabs to groups and access them really fast.
  • Partial support for Chrome extensions - Install some extensions from Chrome Web Store (see #110)
  • Overlay - It contains everything you will need. Search box, bookmarks, menu, your custom components and much more!
  • Packages - Extend Wexond for you needs, by installing or developing your own packages. They can theme the browser and even add custom components to the Overlay! (#147)
