Currently in private beta mode, Arc is an updated, design-forward and human-centric web browser from Hursh Agrawal and Josh Miller’s The Browser Company. With a more colorful, customizable and even modular interface, Arc’s design is refreshing and intuitive, featuring simple yet seemingly life-changing tweaks: a built-in split-view system, versatile sidebar, the ability to hover over a tab to preview, rename-able tabs for better organization, an easel space for text and image brainstorms and automatic picture-in-picture mode for watching videos. What sets Arc apart from any browser before it, however, is its commitment to not sell user data. Instead, the company has amassed over $30 million in investor funding and plans to operate under a freemium model similar to Slack. “I’ve never felt joy in seeing a software update for a web browser until I started using Arc. Even the way they share the changelog updates—as notes snippets initialed by staff—is comforting,” writes Raymond Wong for Inverse, where you can read the full review.
