Hermit is better than traditional browsers & native apps, see why: hermit.chimbori.com/features/compare

BETTER THAN NATIVE APPS

• Lite Apps take up almost no space, best for low storage devices
• They don’t run in the background, which saves battery
• Scriptlets: Run your own custom extension scripts!
• Built-in customizable Content Blocker can block ads, malware, misinformation, & targeted propaganda. You pick what to block.

BETTER THAN TRADITIONAL BROWSERS

Compare Hermit with Traditional Browsers: hermit.chimbori.com/features/compare

• Each Lite App opens in its own permanent window, not a new browser tab each time
• Links clicked in other apps open directly in Lite Apps (must set Hermit as your default browser)
• Settings, permissions, themes & icons are saved separately for each Lite App
• Share links from other Android apps to your Lite Apps

SANDBOXES: MULTIPLE PROFILES / CONTAINERS

Hermit is the only Android browser with Sandboxes: Isolated Containers with Multiple Profiles.

• Sandboxes keep your Web browsing isolated in separate containers
• Use multiple accounts, all active at the same time, in the same browser
• Keep work accounts and personal accounts separate
• Ideal for privacy-invasive social sites
• Use permanent Incognito Mode for sites that offer free content to new users

ADVANCED BROWSER FOR POWER USERS

It takes a bit of learning & understanding before you can use Hermit effectively & we’re here to help!
