    Have you added its executable to Adguard so it can be filtered? Also, reading that site and it's claim to be NSA/Prism safe is false advertising at best, as nothing seems to be safe from either on the internet. :p Other than that it kinda looks like another SRWare Iron scareware Chromium-fork type of browser.

    Having good built in security, and removal of Google spy BS isn't scareware, it's good common sense.

    Also, I was stating it doesn't work with Adguard, not asking for an opinion.

    Actually most, if not all of those "spy" claims are pretty unfounded and just plain paranoid. Besides with the logic that Google's spying on people, wouldn't it also be correct to assume Microsoft, Apple and Mozilla are 'spying' on us too? That and then there's the NSA. :p Wanna know why and how SRWare Icon (and Superbird I'm assuming) can claim they lack the "spy features"? Simply because most of those 'features' don't exist in Chromium (the open source browser Chrome is based on) like RLZ tracking. Other of the "spy" features are just plain taken out of context... that and Google didn't have the foresight to name their features "tracking" either.

    Here's an article about SRWare Iron, which honestly, and in my opinion, is a browser that plays off people's paranoia and fears about big bad Chrome. And the developer basically said he did it to make money off the browser: http://www.insanitybit.com/2012/06/23/srware-iron-browser-a-real-private-alternative-to-chrome-21/

    Hi!

    You can add it to the browsers list manually int "Settings" - "Browsers".

    Or do you want us to add this browser to defaults?

    I would recommend that most of the browsers and applications that Adguard can filter and have been tested be added by default. By doing so the default settings Adguard will work with ideally any browser. I am saying this because i see that Admuncher has quite an extensive list of applications and browsers.
