WebApps

WebApps turns mobi/web app sites into secure apps! Open source.

Provide a secure way to browse popular webapps by eliminating referrers, 3rd party requests, cookies, cross-site scripting, etc.

It accomplishes this by providing a sandbox for multiple webapps (like Google's apps, Facebook, Twitter, etc.). Each webapp will run in it's own sandbox, with 3rd party requests (images, scripts, iframes, etc.) blocked, and all external links opening in an external default web browser (which should have cookies, plugins, flash, etc. disabled).

By default, all HTTP requests are blocked (only HTTPS allowed). This improves security, especially on untrusted networks. The app can also handle HTTPS links and open them in their own sandbox.

Based on GApps Browser.

Packages

Although APK downloads are available below to give you the choice, you should be aware that by installing that way you will not receive update notifications and it's a less secure way to download. We recommend that you install the F-Droid client and use that.
