A line-up of alternative privacy based web browsers.

Apart from the major web browsers — Chrome, Firefox, Safari, IE — there’s a mountain of other browsers available that focus on all sorts of different aspects. For instance, there’s Coowon for gamers and Midori for the system resource constrained and countless others.

But one category on the rise is privacy based web browsers. Competition is fierce among these browsers that want to protect you from cyber crooks, viruses, advertisers and more. If you aren’t up to the task of researching privacy based browsers on your own then use this list as a starting point to test a few out for yourself.

WhiteHat Aviator

WhiteHat Aviator is a privacy based web browser.

The WhiteHat Aviator privacy browser utilizes the DuckDuckGo search engine as its default service. Additionally, it disables all those obnoxious autoplay ads that blast out jingles and audio too. The adblocking feature assists with reducing the chances of a user accidentally downloading malicious software or programs.

Epic

Try the Epic privacy based web browser.

Chromium-based browser Epic works to deliver a private browsing without sacrificing browsing speed. It doesn’t store cookies or browsing history and when you terminate a browsing session and close your browser window everything is deleted. You can also hide your real IP address with Epic too. For a better tracker-free browsing experience Epic is worth a shot.

Comodo Dragon

Comodo Dragon offers is a new privacy based web browser.

The Comodo Dragon interface looks similar to Google Chrome, but modified to include extensive privacy browsing features that prevent data mining from occurring during your web browsing sessions. There is an option to select Comodo’s DNS, which will switch you from your current ISP’s DNS. This helps make it more difficult for your ISP to track your website activity and censor what you’re doing. Other Comodo Dragon features can be used to whitelist and blacklist websites, block Google AdSense and replace with AdTrustMedia browse in virtual mode.
