Keepsafe enters the world of Android browsers presenting its new Keepsafe Browser: secure, private, fast, includes incognito mode …
Well, if Google gives you lemons … make a browser that incorporates new options. And with these intentions comes Kiwi Browser, a browser that combines a minimalist style, speed and privacy for the user. Do you want to know more? We start!

Now we come to one of the characteristics that Kiwi Browser shines with its own light.

The developers are working on a data saver mode substitute due to restrictions on third-party browsers that use Chromium. A few simple details that make this browser a serious candidate to be tested and follow its evolution.
