I would Like to see a Browser like chrome, firefox, or Brave. But without the tracking and also it being based in the same location as protonmail would mean its secure and safe to use.
With companys like google buying up all the alternative browsers I think this a needed program/app. What good is the secure email when Chrome is snap shoting and keylogging your protonmail logins.
I would like to see this as I do not want to use Google, Bing, Firefox, etc. as I believe there are not secure anymore these days.
Good idea .Full secure with out a lot of buttons .
Esther Use Startpage, you get google results. and it is very secure, some times I feel it is more secure than duckduckgo.
I've started using DuckDuckGo for purposes of private online searching, though I sometimes slip back to using Google Chrome because the search results somehow seem better/more powerful. I guess that's because of all the analytical information they're using.
Whilst a Proton Browser would be super cool, and as much as I'd like to see one, I'd prefer it was only done if a) it was better than other options currently out there, b) and didn't take necessary resources from the secure mail aspect, or overstretch the great team.
What a weird idea. There are plenty of trustworthy, open-source browsers. These include Firefox (which is very fast now since the update last autumn) and Brave. Firefox has lots of available add-ons that protect privacy (e.g. uBlock Origin, Cookie Autodelete and Bitwarden - all open source) and Brave has some of this functionality built in already.
It's even less clear to me what advantage it would have for a browser to be "based in the same location" as protonmail. If the code is open source, that's the most important thing. What does it even mean for a browser to be based in a particular location?
Please, Protonmail, focus on the features that will let people finally drop Gmail. Primarily, a searchable calendar, but also search of emails like Tutanota has implemented via local indexing.
I use Brave, which is an anti tracking / secure browser
I can use the left and right arrow buttons to "scroll" back and forth thru my INBOX emails to review messages, but the buttons are not available to review SENT messages or I think any other folders.

I wish this service had a vote DOWN button.
There are sufficient alternatives out in the wilds of the internet to deliver this requirement.
All this does is distract the Proton Dev people and push precious resources onto frivolous projects when they should be focusing on their core service that we have already paid for, being EMAIL ...that is still deficient in so many areas.
I use https://proton.ac/
its call proton browser and positioned as a browser without tracking. on the core of the chromium of which they cut out all google backdoors .
I saw only two updates over the past year of proton browser... in my opinion this is a sign that the developers make changes only in the most extreme case of necessity.
Use the Firefox private browser.
I'd like too
Approximately half of browser users don't even know what privacy is and what the browser does. Most of them probably up-voted this suggestion, LOL

Iron Browser from srware.com is Google's Chrome with the Google tracking and GUID stuff removed.
I would rather they work together with brave and have brave add their VPN service.

But why... You already have lots of web browsers, just do some research.
That being said, why would you build a browser using these engines, as there are already lots of browsers... Plus, you'd need mobile versions in order to sync the favorites on all your devices.
Me, personally, I like to stay as google-less as possible, and for that same reason I use Firefox (with SpiderMonkey and Gecko engines).
Btw there are firefox versions (since firefox is fully-open-source) focused on user privacy (WaterFox).

I took my vote back as I believe ProtonMail should focus on making a secure email service for everyone as it has a lot to improve. Personally its more important that its designed in a way that users don't get stuck in its ecosystem.
There is no need for another privacy friendly browser, because there are already some... I think PM should for now primarily focus on email related features.
I think using different providers for completely different services is a good thing, because it removes the single point of failure.

I would gladly pay extra for this feature.
Paying $30 per month, is a steal for all the services you provide me with.
Just use Tor or DuckDuckGo browser, or Firefox with adding...
