Polarity Browser is an up and coming free web browser app available for multiple platforms. It integrates Google's Chromium and Microsoft's Trident rendering engines in one browser, an amazing feat that grants widespread compatibility. It's highly customizable, too, with themes and extensions. It even provides a few cute ways to reduce energy consumption!

A safe bet

Let's get one thing out of the way: Polarity Browser is safe to use. Though false positives have said otherwise, many reliable sources report that the web browser is clean as a whistle, and so do we. Now that that's out of the way, here's what's important. You can browse virtually any web page and use virtually any applet with Polarity. You can do so fairly easily, once you learn the browser, although its interface does differ a bit from Chrome and others. You can even use many Chrome extensions, though not all.

A worthy alternative

If none of the features above sell you on Polarity Browser, it may not be your cup of tea, although trying it is a very simple matter (as with any web browser). But if you want a web browser that's free of clutter and provides an interesting and functional alternative, Polarity is one of the best new options out there.

Polarity is a handy application designed to provide you with a tab-based, reliable and safe web browser.

Polarity is a handy application designed to provide you with a tab-based, reliable and safe/private web browser.

Based on the Chromium and the Trident engines, the browser comes with a favorite section, a bookmark manager, proxy connection and theme manager. When activated, the Private Mode will prevent the browser from recording the visited websites to the history file. The browser also has a built in translator, a built in web filter that scans each webpage when enabled, a built in adblocker, and more. Polarity's privacy tools with bundled VPN/Proxy support, header masking, and privacy mode with DoNotTrack will keep trackers from accessing your data.

Other features include voice recognition, url prediction, an url bar with live search results, proxy mode, Hardware Acceleration, HTML5 App Cache, User Agent Changer, CLI, Web Apps, Appstore, Extensions(Userscripts) and more.

Polarity is a web browser that is built for the modern web. Unlike from other web browsers, Polarity is fast and smooth and you will surely experience them when you use it. Polarity supports many standards on the web such as HTML5, CSS3, and other web technologies. The active garbage collector will ensure that the browser will use the least amount of RAM possible to surf the internet, unlike other browsers today which use a lot of RAM.

Polarity web browser is meant for any user who requires a lighter, faster, safer, and more stable browser that doesn't track you with the features of modern day web browsers.
