Editors' review

Web Freer is built with the open-source Chromium models on which Google Chrome is built, and with HTTPS browsing and privacy options proves to be an effective tool. The sole purpose of Web Free is to replicate a comfortable browsing experience in a natively private environment. So instead of installing modules and add-ons for another browser that may be less secure, Web Freer is built from the ground up to support HTTPS and keep your data safe.

For the most part, it works exactly as intended. Installation is a bit confusing and takes a few minutes to finalize, but once done, you can open Web Freer as you would any other Web browser, and start surfing the Internet. By default, privacy controls are active, so the HTTPS support is there whenever you go online, encrypting your data, blocking display of your IP address, and making sure what you do is anonymous. It can also unblock sites that are commonly blocked by your ISP and it is very quick. The smartest move made by the developers of Web Freer was to build on Chromium, one of the fastest browsing experiences online, to ensure you gain benefits of private browsing without giving anything up. In our tests it was generally as fast as Chrome and often slightly faster than Firefox in opening high-media sites.

If you are eager to protect your browsing data and your identity when online, and want a browser to augment your antivirus protection, consider Web Freer. Designed from the ground up for privacy protection, it is a perfect supplement to your existing protections.

    "Yuk yuk & yuk"

    July 18, 2014   |   By MRPETERPAN1

    Version: Web Freer 1.1

    Pros

    Non non & non

    Cons

    It's terrible read below

    Summary

    There's a reason I use a program called "DeepFreeze".
    It's because when curiosity takes over and I install something too good to be true, I don't have to bother uninstalling it and having to worry about left over hidden junk files.
    A simple reboot and this yuk browser is gone, done.
    First of all it tries to install (without exaggeration) at least 10 different programs and you have to avoid them.
    Then when I started it up it says 'cannot connect to server'.
    Then it's in Spanish and trying the "Translate to English" failed.
    Then it pops up games on the main page
    Then................................
    I think you get the idea.
    If you install this and don't uncheck all the extra junk "YOU WILL BE SORRY"
    Even if you don't install the extra junk, you'll still be sorry.

    The first time I installed it was from their web site. That is when it tried to install 10 other programs plus all the other problems.
    The second time l downloaded it from CNET and there were no additional programs but Avast deleted it as a virus. Then l added it to exclusions and opened it up. Immediately it said I won a Mercedes car and to fill out a form with name, email, phone number and address.
    Too bad my firewall also blocks it going on the internet. Now l'll never get my Mercedes, darn!

    Shout out to CNET, y'all better take this garbage off your site before it ruins someones computer.
