An Android web browser
TRUST: Right permissions with no spying.
SPEED: No bloat with focus on efficiency.
FEATURES: Crash restore, undo closed tabs, infinite tabs & more.
FREE: As in no cost. Not for profit & not ad-supported but the sites you visit may be.

I wanted a trustworthy browser with features I need yet using as few resources as possible. I hope you enjoy it.

Not concerned with privacy? Spying wastes resources (battery, bandwidth, CPU) and slows your device.

Naked Browser does not use data to spy, monitor, or even show ads. All data transfer is solely as a result of your requests & retrievals. Because Naked Browser is designed for efficiency, you may use more data simply because you can browse sites faster.

Naked Browser uses the Android WebView (WebKit) that's on your device--the same one used by the stock Browser. All data requests & retrievals, all cookies, all passwords, etc. are handled by the WebView and Naked Browser does not interfere with the default behavior.

Naked Browser does not and may never employ a phishing filter, which can warn you if you have visited a site suspected of hosting malware. This does not mean that Naked Browser is insecure, but that--like with any web browser--you should be careful what sites you visit.

• Internet: ONLY for your web page requests & retrievals. Absolutely no monitoring or snooping, & ad-less too.
• File read/write: ONLY so you can save & upload files. Absolutely no other reason.
• View network state: ONLY to handle changes in network connectivity.
• Keep device from sleeping: ONLY to prevent downloads from being cut off.

    This perfectly replaces my default app which crashes on my phone & plus it does more. I'm still learning about other features. I can't think of anything that needs to be changed about it. Plus it's super fast.

    As much as I like Firefox this is so much faster. The Trade off is a little less beauty and functionality. Excellent browser.
