One thing you can do out of the box is run the browser in the cloud (docker container is included), which helps you prevent your device being tracked and hacked, because all the web browsing happens in the cloud, you just connect to the front-end (which only sends you pixels from the page). Some people call this a secure, isolated remote browser.

Anyway, there’s so much more you can do with this project. If you know some programming you can fully customize this browser app in so many ways (more ways than you can customize Chrome). You can literally build your own browser, instead of having a browser controlled by a massive company. This is a browser nobody controls but you.
