Maiar is a new browser, making speed, security and privacy common settings for every user on the internet.
- Browse the web up to 8x faster. The best browser for you is the one that comes with privacy and ad-blocking features built-in and enabled by default. Maiar is faster and more energy efficient than other browsers, loading major web sites 2 to 8 times faster than Chrome and Safari on mobile and 2 times faster than Chrome on desktop.
- Tired of online ads? Enjoy an ad-free web. Maiar can block ads for you without installing any additional add-ons or extensions. Maiar’s built-in ad blocker blocks unwanted content by default and makes content-rich webpages load up to 8 times faster. Many websites often host multiple ads and as many as 70+ trackers per site. Most ad blockers still allow trackers through to profile your browsing patterns, locations or behaviour.
- Private and secure by default. Privacy and security are something you should expect by default. That’s why features to help protect your privacy and keep you secure are built into Maiar. Maiar blocks the software and trackers that follows you around and provide a deep level of protection. Our secure browser protects you from fraud and malware on the web.
Maiar is built on top of the Brave browser, just as Brave is built on top of Chromium. Both are open-source, and Maiar is as well. Thus, Maiar looks like Chrome on most operating systems, with the difference that it’s much faster and private.
Maiar is not in the personal data business. Our servers neither see nor store your browsing data — it stays private, on your devices, until you delete it. Which means we won’t ever sell your data to third parties.
Secure site upgrades. Whenever possible, Maiar automatically upgrades to HTTPS for secure, encrypted communications while other browsers would use an insecure connection.
Built-in Password Manager. You can have Maiar remember your passwords for different sites.
Defaults that matter. Browse confidently with default settings that block phishing, malware, and malvertising. Also, plugins, which have proven to be a security risk, are disabled by default.
Customize your settings. Choose your settings on a per-site or browser-wide basis. See how many ads and trackers are being blocked by Maiar every day by looking at your dashboard.
