A place to discuss privacy and freedom in the digital world.

Bromite is chromium based and has site isolation wheras mull doesn’t have process isolation. Both are hardened browsers and are very good for privacy. If your threat model requires site isolation go for bromite but if you don’t need it, you can go for mull. I think mull is enough for my threat model and I really like its ad and tracker blocking and addon capabilities. You can add any addon with a customized addon collection.
Firefox has site isolation since a good while now, these are GrapheneOS community lies that Bromite has exclusive rights over it. These lies can be traced back to madaidan, and were debunked long ago: https://old.reddit.com/r/netsec/comments/i80uki/_/g162g4r/?context=3
Firefox has Tor Project features like First Party Isolation and anti fingerprinting which is unmatched by any Google Chrome or Blink/WebKit variants. Therefore, for site isolation, one must choose Firefox. Bromite and Google Chrome have lots of issues like WebRTC leaks.
Firefox doesn’t have per-site process isolation. That info is from the dev of mull.
I’m not sure what info to take from that linked comment, sorry. I didn’t refer to madaidan or grapheneos.
WebRTC is obviously only a problem if you use it. I think I’ve never used WebRTC in an android browser.
The site isolation claims for the past 3 years are made by madaidan, and not u/subzer0carnage on reddit. To debunk your very own claim, let me cite the developer of Mull and DivestOS himself, from reddit, from 3 weeks ago.
Thx for the clarification. Maybe there was just a misunderstanding. I wrote site isolation but meant per-site process isolation in the first comment but added it in the following comment.
I was actually very inconsistent. I used “site isolation” and “process isolation” in the first comment and “per-site process isolation” in the second comment.
As an alternative to Bromite there is Kiwi which is a good balance between privacy and usability.
Be careful because Kiwi in the latest release insert a lot of tracking: https://reports.exodus-privacy.eu.org/it/reports/com.kiwibrowser.browser/latest/
It looks like Firefox has trackers too, right?
Doesn’t fission offer site isolation for firefox on android? It’s disabled by default but you can turn it on with
I don’t think that enabling it does anything
oh. didn’t know that. hopefully it’ll be functional soon.
Btw on android it’s called rooting not jailbraking. I highly advise against rooting your android as this can introduce security risks. Indtalling another os like grapheneos does not requiere root access.
