Ambox warning pn.svg.png Deprecated.

SecBrowser ™ has been deprecated and is now unsupported. It will continue to function for users who still have it installed, as will its internal updater. There is no urgent need to stop using it, but that action is recommended. The SecBrowser ™ start page will soon be updated to notify users about its deprecation. For replacement recommendations, see: Host Browser Advice.


  • No bug reports / feature requests will be accepted.
  • No support requests will be answered.
  • No further development.

Deprecation reasons:

  • In the future, it will not be installed by default in Kicksecure ™.
    • Quote Kicksecure Default Browser development considerations:

      SecBrowser (a browser providing better privacy when browsing clearnet) will not be installed by default in Kicksecure ™ because of grave usability issues, namely its window bar is still saying "Tor Browser" rather than Firefox or SecBrowser. That would be too confusing for new users of Kicksecure. Also Chromium is more secure than SecBrowser. See also these Chromium considerations.

  • The development effort is too high.

To learn more about the SecBrowser ™ design refer to the last active version of the SecBrowser ™ website [archive].

The SecBrowser ™ source code remains Freedom Software [archive]. Developers are welcome to fork [archive] the software and take over maintenance.

Non-Affiliation with The Tor Project[edit]

SecBrowser ™ was a derivative of Tor® Browser, produced independently from the Tor® anonymity software and carries no guarantee from The Tor® Project [archive] about quality, suitability or anything else.
