Horse Browser helps to restore my mental context whenever I return to a research problem after a break.

Tabs Suck

Tabs are a windowless casino. And 'tab groups' can't help.

Someone screwed up. Internet browsers got it right the first time. Early explorers tracked each journey with a simple, tree-like hierarchy - so they always knew where they started.

Marketers ruined the internet.

Websites became cash cows to push content and sell products - and they weaponised distraction.

Browsers became transactional.

Your work is an obstacle to an advertising brand that wants you to spend money online.

Tab groups can’t help.

Your browser was built like a windowless casino. But you need a clear view that keeps you focused on your goals.


Stay focused with Trails® - an intuitive way to browse and work.

Trails® fix everything. Browse the internet with one simple sidebar that organises every page, task and project inside ‘Trails®’ - nested groups that capture the natural flow of each internet journey.

Trails® establish a simple parent-child hierarchy.

You can name, organise and even add an emoji to any Trail to transform it into a group or folder.

Build a system that suits your workflow and organisational strategy - with Trails®.

Browse with Trails®

Start each journey with a fresh Trail. You can close or open any Trail with a click - so it’s easy to switch tasks and clear your deck.

Explore Side-Trails®

Open each new page in a ‘Side-Trail’ that belongs to a parent Trail - so you can explore complex search journeys in seconds.

Customise your Trails®

Transform your Trails® into a flexible organisation system. Use names and emoji icons to identify each Trail and Side-Trail.

Enjoy a simple sidebar

Horse Browser offers a minimalist search experience, with your Trails® in one simple sidebar - and a vast expanse of screen real estate.


Use Trails® as folders. Just add a fresh Trail, set an emoji and a name - then drag-and-drop in pages for any website or tool.


Create groups for topics and use Side-Trails® as sub-topics to create a page organisation system that’s more flexible than bookmarks.

Horse Browser helps me navigate the labyrinth that is the apple developer documentation.

Protect your privacy with Horse Browser - the browser that fights adverts.

Horse Browser has your back. Explore the internet with a browser that blocks trackers, defends your data - and gives you total search engine freedom.

Most new internet browsers are developed on a codebase that was built by a multi-billion dollar advertising company. Yikes.

Horse Browser was designed to help you finish tasks. And it’s built in the European Union - so it complies with the EU’s tough data privacy laws.

Your data will never be a Horse Browser product.

Privacy assured

Relax. Horse Browser will never collect, track or sell your data. Our business model is simple: build and sell an awesome browser.


Browse with confidence. Horse Browser will quietly block any website adverts and trackers to protect your privacy and personal data.

Password manager

Store your passwords directly in Horse Browser so you can access any websites with minimal friction.

Search engine freedom

Search with your favourite engine. Choose from Google, DuckDuckGo, Bing, Yahoo, Ecosia, Brave, Baidu, Yandex, Kagi, and Qwant.

EU compliance

Horse Browser is built and maintained in the EU, so it complies with the world’s toughest data privacy standards - like GDPR.

No account needed

We don’t care who you are. Just buy a licence key, download Horse Browser - and browse in private. We’ll never bother you again.

Sencha Tea

Sencha (煎茶) is a type of Japanese ryokucha (緑茶, green tea) which is prepared by infusing the processed whole tea leaves in hot water. This is as opposed to matcha (抹茶), powdered Japanese green tea, where the green tea powder is mixed with hot water and therefore the leaf itself is included in the beverage. Sencha is the most popular tea in Japan. It represents about 80 percent of the tea produced in Japan.
