xB Browser is a simple web browser whose main advantage is anonymous and secure online navigation. Based on the Firefox engine, xB Browser uses the Tor network to encrypt your browsing activities.
Once you start the program, it takes a while for it to start, as it has to set the Tor connection. However, once it is up and running, you don't have to configure it or install additional tools for hiding your identity.
Focused on the anonymity feature, the program fails to provide fast browsing speed and you can notice this as soon as you access the first webpage, but that is the price to pay for the advantage of hiding the identity while browsing.
In order to add extra protection to your identity, xB Browser is set by default to clear the browsing history and delete all the cookies when you close it. However, you can change this feature using the 'Options' window.
The software provides users with a clean interface and easy access to options. Other than that, it includes all the standard features of any application from its category: tabbed browsing, website history, smart bookmarks, a download manager and a Web search tool. In addition, it comes with some useful tools for developers, such as the 'Error Console'.
Additionally, it can block pop-up windows, manage passwords and allows the user to customize and enhance the browser experience by using add-ons. Just like in Firefox, you can practically change almost every aspect of your browser. Install new themes to change the appearance of the application and add-ons to improve its functionality.
Providing multi-language support, xB Browser is an easy to use browser, fully configured to support the Tor network. Although it lacks navigation speed, it can hide your original IP address and encrypt the data while you explore the Web, which is a real advantage for protecting user privacy.
