JonDoBrowser provides strong privacy for web surfing
Today, JonDos releases the first beta version of "JonDoBrowser", a special Firefox browser for secure web surfing, e.g. by using the anonymizing network "JonDonym".
What is new?
Unlike to the previous JonDoFox software package, the additional security compared to Firefox is not only achieved by using add-ons: it is rather a custom Firefox distribution with slighty changed browser code, in which features that might be problematic for privacy were disabled. The effects can be seen at http://ip-check.info
Developing a custom browser has become necessary, as the Firefox code contains more and more privacy-harming functionalities which add-ons can only fix inadequately. Since such a project is very resource consuming, the development is conducted in collaboration with the Tor project. The browser code is published under an open source license.
The beta version of JonDoBrowser is available on all desktop operating systems (Windows, Mac OS X, Linux) and can be downloaded for free and anonymous at the following URL:
