Description : A web browser focusing on decentralized discovery
A simple and performant yet powerful window onto the open decentralized web
Odysseus is a convenient and privacy-respecting web browser, that increasingly,
gently, and unobtrusively guides you wherever you want to go online.
Through this well thought out simplicity Odysseus lets you focus on the
webpages that matter to you.
* Tabbed web browsing
* Opens non-webpage links in 3rd party apps, or suggests ones to install
* DuckDuckGo integration
* Browser history
* Topsites with initial hand-curated recommendations
These features are completed to a high degree of polish.
I created my own web browser in order to experiment with relying on
decentralized protocols like webfeeds, SKOS, OpenSearch, and links for
discovery webpage rather than centralized websites. I have heard significant
interest from people online to have it packaged for Debian-based systems.
As such I'm keen to manage a Debian package for my work.
