Why Use Open-Source Browsers?

Why Use Open-Source Browsers?

Like all open-source software, using open-source browsers brings a few advantages. Perhaps most importantly, it lets you trust the software.
Browsers are uniquely placed in the app world: they can track you, spy on you, and follow you in a way that other apps cannot. Given we live in a world of government surveillance and Big Brother-esque online ad agencies, it’s hard to trust closed-source software vendors. The vendors are within reach of surveillance laws.

The nature of an open-source browser means anyone can study it, verify it, and detect issues. You can be more confident you’re not being watched or tracked.

The other benefits of open-source browsers mirror the benefits of open-source software in general, such as combustibility, flexibility, and community support.
