Dooble is a free and open-source web browser that was created to improve privacy.[3] Currently, Dooble is available for FreeBSD,[4] Linux,[4][5][6] macOS,[4] OS/2, and Windows.[4] Dooble uses Qt for its user interface and abstraction from the operating system and processor architecture. As a result, Dooble should be portable to any system that supports OpenSSL, POSIX threads, Qt, SQLite, and other libraries.

Features

Dooble is designed and implemented in order to improve privacy and usability.

History

The first version (0.1) was released in September, 2008.[10]

Since November 5, 2017 it uses the Qt WebEngine.[13]

The version (2.1.6) was released on January 25, 2018.[14]

Releases

Dooble was also available on Nokia's N900.[15]

Reception

In 2014 Dooble was rated as the ninth of ten "top" Linux browsers by Jack Wallen.[6] Dooble further has been announced in 2015 as one of the top five best secure browsers.[16] PCWorld reviewed Dooble in 2015 on the feature side as "rendering quickly, even on image-heavy sites".[17] The Guardian recommended Dooble in 2015 as an alternative browser against surveillance: "Try out a privacy-focused browser such as Dooble.".[18]
