A Browser That Modernizes the Way You Interact with the Web

Horbito NOVA is a web browser that changes the way you interact with websites. It turns any site into an application so that you could interact with windows instead of tabs.

OS-Like Interface

The founders of NOVA want to completely alter the way a web browser looks and works. This is why when you look at NOVA, you end up thinking whether it’s a new browser or an operating system. The browser is the first of its kind that lets you engage with your web applications via an OS-like user interface – with badges, icons and windows. Instead of accessing apps via a URL, you would turn websites into applications by adding them to the taskbar of the browser. When booting NOVA, you would launch and work with the applications in a way similar to how you interact with a desktop app. In short, different websites would become clickable apps.

Chromium-Based

The browser is Chromium-based, which means each web application would work as quickly as they do in Google Chrome. The future would also see support from Chrome Store plugins. The overall performance of the browser is quite impressive too. The browser’s inherent nature ensures you use less windows or tabs, which means minimal memory consumption and smoother overall performance.

PROS

  • Easy to use
  • Stable for consumer use
  • Solid performance
  • Neat, value-adding interface

CONS

  • Taskbar management could be nightmarish
  • Cookie and browsing history management leaves a lot to desire
  • You would lose browser extensions
  • No Linux support
