WebApps is an open-source, secure, sandboxed browser for mobi/web app sites. What this means is that you can browse mobile websites/web apps securely within the app, but any external links will open in your default browser or other app. With the ability to create homescreen shortcuts, WebApps turns your favourite mobi/web apps into secure apps! 

WebApps automatically uses HTTPS for all requests, and by default actually blocks any 3rd party requests (e.g. analytics, ad trackers, etc) and any insecure requests (i.e. requests that are not using HTTPS).

The main use for WebApps is that you can disable cookies, password saving, and flash/local storage on your default browser. This way, you cannot easily be tracked or have your session hijacked when on public Wifi. You can safely opt to use the mobile versions of some popular apps (like Facebook, Twitter, etc.) instead of using their Android app counterparts, since the Android apps can leak a lot of private data (e.g. automatic photo uploads, location, your contact list, etc.).

- Works like Mozilla Prism on the desktop. This is a mostly chrome-less browser that gets out of your way.
- Much like FirefoxOS did, WebApps turns websites into secure apps on your phone (you can create shortcuts on your homescreen)
- Completely full-screen browsing (auto-hiding action bar)
- Securely browse mobile sites (uses HTTPS and rejects HTTP connections to avoid wire-tapping)
- Blocks 3rd party requests (images/scripts/iframes) like the NoScript and NotScripts plugins on the desktop
- Allows self-signed SSL certificates to be accepted and saved
- Saves website certificates and warns if the certificate changes (can detect man-in-the-middle attack) 
- User agent setting allows more rich mobile experience (depending on site)
- Uses much less bandwidth than native apps. No background sync'ing.
- Features local data storage and caching for reduced bandwidth usage and better speed. Toggling images off saves more bandwidth when using mobile data.
- Fully open source software.

    Great, doesn't seem to have the same issues with connectivity Chrome has for some pwa sites. I use this mostly with homeassistant, only wish is that it support push notifications by option per site, which the dev has an issue on GH for anyway. This is fairly limited in features, but the privacy and stability are worth it for me.

    I use this app about 80% of the to for my web browsing activities. 2 major benefits for me is 1) no distracting adverts or ads 2) no trackers. My web surfing activities feels quite.

    Great stuff. Please allow different/separate browser agent for each app.

    Pretty good app. I just struggled with broken sites in the beggining, but unblocking a few 3rd Party stuff brought back my experience. I just wish I didn't need to allow 3rd Parties to simply see images, but it is sandboxed, so it isn't all that much of a bother.

    Good app BUT Apps should not have the ability to open stuff in my browser. It ruins the entire point when it starts jumping out to my default browser app on my phone. Please allow the user to block web apps from opening stuff in the browser of the phone.

    Pretty good. The feautres that I need to use it more often is the ability to block ads and receive notifications. Then I can run it like a normal app.

    It used to be possible to open links or pics from FB with a long press and then choose a browser , and that doesn't seem to work now. I shouldn't have updated this app. Please change if possible.

    just cause it works. privacy friendly, and to all those people complaining about facebook not being there.. seriously, you want all your data to be leaked? And that there's no https, well.. its a SANDBOXED browser. it doesn't require https connection to be secure, its already a sandbox. If you don't know what a sandbox is, google it.

    It doesn't work for me. Facebook sign on page barely loads but nothing else. I was able to load google news home but when I clicked a link I received a blank page.
