has launched a made-in-India browser, JioPages. The company claims that
focusses on data-privacy and gives users full control of their information. "While keeping privacy at the core of the browser, JioPages provides superior performance when compared to its peers. It is built on the powerful Chromium Blink engine, it provides enhanced browsing experience through faster engine migration, best-in-class webpage rendering, faster page loads, efficient media streaming, Emoji domain support and encrypted connection," said the company in a release.
Here are the key features of the all-new browser as per Reliance Jio:
Personalised Home Screen: Users have the option of setting any search engines such as Google, Bing, MSN, Yahoo or Duck Duck Go, as their default search option. They can also pin the links of their favourite websites on the home screen for quick and easy access.
Personalized theme: Users can choose from a range of colourful background themes. Tje browser also supports ‘Dark mode’.
Personalised content: The content feed is customised to suit the user’s preference in terms of language, topic and region. In addition, JioPages, as per the company, sends notifications only on topics that are either important or of interest to the user.
Cards: Another feature is 'Informative Card' that is said to capture key numbers, trends, symbols or headlines of a given topic, for e.g. stock market trends, commodity prices or cricket score, and display them as compact clickable banners on the screen.
Supports 8 Indian languages: The browser supports eight Indian languages -- Hindi, Marathi, Tamil, Gujarati, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada and Bengali. Users also have the option of customising their content feed according to their preferred state.
Advanced Download Manager: The browser categorises downloads according to the file type, i.e. Image, Video, Document or Pages.
Incognito Mode: The Incognito mode enables private browsing by preventing browsing history from being stored in the system. On JioPages, users will have the option of setting a four-digit security PIN or fingerprint as an access code to the Incognito mode.
Ad Blocker: The browser claims to block unsolicited ads and popups.
