Polarity is a handy application designed to provide you with a tab-based, reliable and safe/private web browser. Based on the Chromium and the Trident engines, the browser comes with a favorite section, a bookmark manager, proxy connection and theme manager. When activated, the Private Mode will prevent the browser from recording the visited websites to the history file. The browser also has a built in translator, a built in web filter that scans each webpage when enabled, a built in adblocker, and more. Polarity's privacy tools with bundled VPN/Proxy support, header masking, and privacy mode with DoNotTrack will keep trackers from accessing your data.
Other features include voice recognition, url prediction, an url bar with live search results, proxy mode, Hardware Acceleration, HTML5 App Cache, User Agent Changer, CLI, Web Apps, Appstore, Extensions(Userscripts) and more. Polarity is a web browser that is built for the modern web. Unlike from other web browsers, Polarity is fast and smooth and you will surely experience them when you use it. Polarity supports many standards on the web such as HTML5, CSS3, and other web technologies. The active garbage collector will ensure that the browser will use the least amount of RAM possible to surf the internet, unlike other browsers today which use a lot of RAM. Polarity web browser is meant for any user who requires a lighter, faster, safer, and more stable browser that doesn't track you with the features of modern day web browsers.
