BlueGriffon – a next-generation of web and EPUB editor based on the rendering engine of Firefox. BlueGriffon® has a long list of famous ancestors and proudly inherits from all of them: Netscape®, Mozilla® Composer and Nvu. It is powered by Gecko, the same rendering engine you can find at the heart of Firefox®, and is filled with tons of powerful features.

Like its predecessor, NVU, BlueGriffon furnishes a simple interface with all the most usual features needed to create web pages that are compliant with W3C web standards.

BlueGriffon is available in two versions (A.) without a license (the free version we listed on FossHub) and (B.) another version that requires a payment to use all its available features. You can check the differences between the free and paid version by visiting the “What’s Inside” section of the official site.

Netbox.Browser – an application for PC and mobile devices, the main function of which, in addition to access to web-resources, is to maintain the functioning of the Netbox.Chain blockchain network. The Netbox.Browser is the first web browser that does not have a centralized infrastructure: all personal data of users belong only to them and decisions on the areas of development of the product are made by the community.

Unlike common web browsers Netbox.Browser provides its users with the unique feature: it rewards them for the time spent while browsing.

There is no big corporation standing behind our web browser. There is no hidden reports sent to the server. There are people, the community that decides which way to develop Netbox.Browser.

Each working Netbox.Browser is a blockchain node. The browser carries an integrated wallet which makes blockchain transactions easy accessible and clear.

ungoogled-chromium – a Chromium based web browser, a lightweight approach to removing Google web service dependency.

In descending order of significance (i.e. most important objective first):
– ungoogled-chromium is Google Chromium, sans dependency on Google web services.
– ungoogled-chromium retains the default Chromium experience as closely as possible. Unlike other Chromium forks that have their own visions of a web browser, ungoogled-chromium is essentially a drop-in replacement for Chromium.
– ungoogled-chromium features tweaks to enhance privacy, control, and transparency. However, almost all of these features must be manually activated or enabled.

Without signing in to a Google Account, Chromium does pretty well in terms of security and privacy. However, Chromium still has some dependency on Google web services and binaries. In addition, Google designed Chromium to be easy and intuitive for users, which means they compromise on transparency and control of internal operations.

Redcore Browser – a Chromium based web browser created by Chinese company Redcore Times (Beijing) Technology Ltd.

Features:
– Hidden Shield Stealth Defense System is a browser-based security access program. Hidden Shield Stealth Defense System focuses on the usage scenarios of external personnel accessing the intranet, which is simpler and safer than VPN. Incognito S includes three components: enterprise browser, incognito gateway, and control background
– SDP is a mature security model. The Cloud Security Alliance has organized 4 SDP hacking contests, and no one has breached it so far. Gartner predicts that SDP will quickly become popular in 2018, and by 2021, 60% of enterprises will use SDP solutions to replace VPNs.
– Private DNS – The administrator can not perform DNS resolution on the external network, but only set the correspondence between the domain name and IP of the business system in the management and control background. When the user logs in to the browser, he obtains the IP of the business system from the background, and then accesses the business system. Because the DNS and IP of the business system are not exposed on the Internet, hackers cannot initiate network attacks.
– Dynamic firewall – Incognito incognito gateway “rejects all” connections by default, and will only receive the first packet with identity information sent by the corporate browser. After the server is authenticated, the browser will be allowed to establish a connection. Hackers cannot see the open ports and cannot scan the server. Moreover, hackers cannot see the content of the server, so they cannot see the value of hacking the server, which reduces the hacker’s willingness to attack.
– Application level access – Hidden Shield SDP only allows application-level access and does not expose the intranet. Even if malware is installed on employees’ computers, they cannot scan and steal resources on the intranet.
– On-demand authorization – The administrator can reasonably restrict which applications users can access in the background. For example, only employees in the finance department are allowed to access the financial system, but not the HR system. Unauthorized access will be blocked by the gateway. In this way, over-authorization of users is avoided, the attack surface is greatly reduced, and the possibility of employee leaks is also reduced.
