Over the past few months, I've been working on a new browser, called Min, that is integrated with DuckDuckGo.
There are several improvements to the search bar over other browsers:
- The search bar shows information from DuckDuckGo's API as you type.
- The browser supports fuzzy search, so you can type "dc/f" to get to this forum.
- Full-text search is supported for bookmarks, so its much easier to find things you've saved.
- !bangs are sorted by how often you've used them, so its easier to quickly search on a website.
There are also features that make Min easier to use when you have lots of tabs open:
- New tabs open to the right of the current tab, so you don't lose your place in the tabstrip.
- Tabs you haven't looked at in a while fade out, so its easier to find the tab you want.
- You can swipe down on the tab strip (or press shift + control/command + e) to view all of your open tabs in a grid.
It also includes features such as a reading list and a "focus mode" that prevents you from getting distracted.
Min is based on Chromium, using Electron
Currently, Mac OS X is the only platform that is officially supported, but there are Windows and Linux builds here
that should work. Please let me know if you run into any problems.
The source code is available on GitHub: https://github.com/PalmerAL/min/
You can download the browser here: https://palmeral.github.io/min
Let me know what you think!
I've also attached some screenshots of the browser.
