Another new browser! But you should like this one!
Dude is a fast and secure browser designed to optimize your online productivity. Unlike mainstream browsers that make money by embedding their ads, Sidekick only relies on its users’ subscriptions to make money. As a result, it offers a whole new user experience that focuses solely on productivity and protecting your data, rather than on marketing it.
Sidekick’s founder, Dmitry Pushkarev, is an expert in biotechnology and cloud computing. He co-founded Moleculo Inc., a genome decoding company, and ClusterK, automation software acquired by Amazon. Before founding Sidekick, Dmitry held senior positions at Amazon.
Built on Chromium like many others, Sidekick works much like an operating system, providing direct access to your most used web services and a built-in search engine for all your documents, messages, and files. It supports multi-accounting within separate workspaces for your different projects or clients. Ideal for segmenting your activities.
In terms of features, Sidekick includes an ad blocker that protects your privacy and ensures pages load up to three times faster than traditional mainstream browsers. Remember to unblock Korben.info for support (or join Patreon!)
The browser also learns from your habits and knows which tabs to hibernate to save disk space, but also knows which tabs to keep to avoid losing your unsaved work. smart no?
Sidekick also optimizes storage by pooling the resources allocated to identical websites and online applications (like Google Docs). This reduces memory consumption by up to 80%. This allows you to run more web applications without slowing down your computer’s performance.
The browser also monitors CPU usage and when tabs are unusually busy, it will warn you and offer to close them.
Not that bad, is it? Of course, the best thing is still to try here.
