Permissions & Privacy

This is first and foremost. Permissions are closely related to our privacy. According to Android Documentation (developer.android.com/guide/topics/permissions/overview), there are two type of permission:

Normal : Normal permissions cover areas where your app needs to access data or resources outside the app's sandbox, but where there's very little risk to the user's privacy or the operation of other apps.

Dangerous : Dangerous permissions cover areas where the app wants data or resources that involve the user's private information, or could potentially affect the user's stored data or the operation of other apps.

Dangerous Permissions in OH Browser: None
(No Camera Permission, No Location Permission, No Storage Permission , No Contact Permission, No Identification Permission, etc). This app doesn't analyse your behavior, No Firebase analytics connected to this browser,
So clearly most secure browser! Most respect to your privacy! Not just marketing!

1) Unmatched speed with native experience,
2) Small app size & lightweight, saves storage & battery,

OH is one stop shop, packed with almost all features, no extra add-ons needed! Some unique features are Dark Mode, Ad blocker, Intuitive Gestures, Save As Web Archive / PDF, Separate Private Tabs, Secure Screen, Multiple Search Engines Support. Also more cool features are developing continuously!

FAQ
Q: I am using MIUI based mobile, when I download or save file, it says "Turn on documents", is that the problem of this app?

Hello, I like this browser really much.

What I miss are more privacy settings (Blocking 3rd party cookies, delete selected data automatically on close, custom search engine).

Still using this browser and watching what the futur will bring. Thanks a lot!

- Long press back key will give the handy option to clear data! Also I think to give an option to auto clear in settings!

- Block 3rd party cookies, customs search engine will be implemented.


Thank you for your feedback!

Thanks for the fast reply, I'm really impressed by your browser.
It's very fast and handy, no second hand needed. :)

Just bought pro and hope that you will keep this great browser up to date in future. Thanks a lot!

Can you improve the adblocker even more?
- Please block annoying cookie popups (Like Kiwi browser)
- Maybe allow custom filter lists (Like Easylist, EasyPrivacy)

Hey Dev. I just downloaded and am testing out your browser. So far it's really nice! Great job! Would it be possible to map one of the buttons to long press to exit and clear data?

OH has different goal than Via. But in the case of simplicity, I think OH is done enough. OH has only one toolbar with only 4 buttons (All functions there). So we may say it is the most simplified browser in the planet!

Open link in native apps: OH doesn't control that. Its depends on the web page code! If the web designer wants to launch that link using app, there is an api. But if the dev don't want, we leave that as is. OH doesn't change the behaviour of web page, I think it has sense.


Hand icon doing very important jobs! For ex, if you browsing a page with floating search bar on the top. If you are scrolled down 70% of the page, how will you reach that search bar? Scroll again to top then drag down? No, just tap hand icon.

Hand icon:
Tap - Top page will come down
Long Tap - Scroll to top!
Double tap - Expand system status bar

handy, isn't it?

Great browser, easily control with one hand.
How about add a media grabber feature. If you wants to bring some good browsing experiences aside from one hand browsing,
the media grabber comes with opening videos in external player will be a must. The original build-in video player sucks at one-hand control.

    Ya, we love dark mode. I am always trying to improve it. Guys who travel with me from the beginning know that the dark mode is progressively improved. Also I heard that Google is working on in built dark mode for web pages using Android system webview. So it is bonus for us. But until then I like to improve it....

    Thank you guys! Have a great day!:good:
