If you are looking for a secure browser, you can not choose from a very large selection. Chrome, Opera, Firefox, etc. are being expanded more and more for convenience and are all starting to broadcast data to users in secret.
In addition, then the browser is tried on the other side with extensions like Ghostery, AdBlocker etc. more secure close. Unfortunately, this often causes the browsers to send exactly the opposite and even more data about the users at the end.
Any customization of a browser Also, similar to a tuned car, it makes them easier to recognize. Each extension is also recognizable to web servers and therefore offers the possibility of an individual fingerprint.
Only manual updates
Automatic updates of the Epic Browser Unfortunately, there is not. To do this, the browser would have to log in to a service again and ask for a newer version, consequently, he does not. But you can sign up in my newsletter and get this information in time.
The Epic Browser is a Google Chrome version, which was the "data sent" abgewöhnt.
In addition, some major changes were necessary. The result is but a browser which just as Google Chrome is easy to use, and no further extensions required to be considered "safe". By making all Epic users look the same, more anonymity in usage can generally be achieved.
The browser is loaded directly from the developer's site and appears larger than the Google Chrome browser. But that's because Google Chrome reloads needed updates and extensions later independently. But this is exactly what the developers wanted to avoid. There is no communication with Google or other extension providers.
