Default Love the internet but hate smut?

Some might say that's a contradiction in terms, but these guys think otherwise.

Asil Browser

I'll play with it a bit and report back. :cool:

OK. Installed. Seems to be Chrome based.

It doesn't really prevent anything, but it does give you an extra chance to stop yourself before you succumb to sin. :P

Some screen shots:





This is the YouTube home page (not logged in).
You can still click a video and see it.



This one is an actual pr0n site, so I'll just link not embed.

Hmmm, Basically a revision of the Brave browser. Like Brave it sits on the Chrome engine.
Wonder if it logs and can share activity to some other location.

It seems like you don't know that Google (and others) have safe modes you can use, that already do this shit.

Warn you and mask "offending" content.

And not just smut. They will help you avoid wrongthink as well.

Yes, we do know that.
But did you see that this browser seems preset for specific "offensive" material?
I seem to remember that some Xtian group had been working on similar notion a few years back.
But they couldn't ever seem to agree on which content should be screened.

However their concept of wrongthink is not the same as that of Google, though there might be a bit of overlap.

Nor is their concept all that much like Christian fundies (other than porn).

Default Re: Love the internet but hate smut?

When I was travelling in Turkey I went to one internet cafe (this was 20 years ago) and was reading discussion boards and, annoyingly, the browser closed itself on me few times. Later I realised these probably weren't crashes but triggered by content, and the trigger was probably the word "atheism/atheist".
