The Browser Company has unveiled its Arc 1.0 browser for Mac, making it easier than ever to customize or modify the websites you visit.
The final version includes several features that have recently gained popularity, such as an optional toolbar, a site “control center,” and picture-in-picture support for Google Meet video calls.
Additionally, the software promises to be more streamlined and faster than previous iterations.
Arc continues to challenge the traditional conventions of web browsers. Users can personalize the appearance and layout of websites using Boosts, which allows for color changes, font replacements, and even the removal of unwanted sections.
While not all websites are compatible with these customizations, many can be shared with other users. Creating Boosts does not require coding or scripting knowledge.
Tabs still exist, but the focus of browsing is primarily on switchable virtual spaces, which act as tab groups to help users concentrate on specific tasks, such as work or catching up on social media. Frequently visited sites can be pinned, and a command bar is available for power users.
The company has also announced that a Windows version of Arc will be released in the near future.
Although it may not replace popular browsers like Chrome, Edge, or Safari for those who are already accustomed to their functionality, Arc offers a unique opportunity to reshape the web according to personal preferences.
