Swirl – a lightweight, powerful, fast, and beautiful browser that excels in simplicity, privacy, smoothness, and more. Swirl is designed to be lightweight and to stay out of your way as much as possible. It’s a fluid, minimalist browser that is extremely intuitive.

Swirl gives you a great experience on all of your devices – it works perfectly on computers running SDesk, and natively supports Apple Silicon when it runs on your Mac.

It uses the QtWebEngine rendering library (Which does use components of chromium, though I can’t imagine it uses everything, since It doesn’t support extensions that work with chromium), and it’s important to note that I didn’t fork chromium and just modify the UI, most non-webpage elements in the browser are written in the Qt6 UI framework and I maintain my own codebase for the browser instead of just applying patches to each chromium release. (I – means: the web browser developer)

It also makes extension development more accessible with the Lua programming language, and an easier to understand API (Which is currently being documented, and I will keep everyone here posted).
