Min Browser is a lightweight web browser designed for Mac and Ubuntu operating systems. Open source and free to download, this browser aims to reduce CPU and power usage while retaining easy web browsing with basic functionality.
With modern web browsers becoming more demanding to run, less impactful options have become popular. Min Browser is one such option, an open source bare bones browser that lacks the additional features of Firefox or Chrome, but with a well-designed core. The search bar combines a search engine, Wikipedia results and a calculator, simplifying browsing. An in-built ad blocker is a nice touch and tab control is intuitive and clever. The browser is open source, meaning that anyone can edit or add features, but this does require a knowledge of coding.
Min Browser is an impressive fan creation which offers a simple web browser perfect for those who run additional background programs, use an older PC or simply want to extend their laptop battery. Diving under the hood takes a knowledgeable hand but the basic setup is fine for most users. The interface is clean and necessarily bare which may, however, discourage some. Min Browser is a decent choice which will probably appeal more to advanced users.
