Iridium Browser 62.1.0-Chromium-based browser with strong Privacy features


Iridium is a free, open, and libre browser modification of the Chromium code base, with privacy being enhanced in several key areas. Automatic transmission of partial queries, keywords, metrics to central services inhibited and only occurs with consent. In addition, all Iridium builds are reproducible, and modifications are auditable, setting the project ahead of other secure browser providers.

Differences between Iridium and Chromium:
