Chronicler

Chronicler is an offline-first web browser. Chronicler works as your own personal:

  • Web archiver, snapshotting pages exactly as you remember them.
  • Search engine, providing full-text search of all pages you visit.
  • Web crawler, automatically downloading entire sites to be browsed later.

Introduction to Chronicler video

Getting Started

macOS: You can download the latest version from the releases page.

Other platforms: Currently binary releases are published and tested for macOS only. If you are interested in testing another platform, please get in touch!

⚠️ Early development warning

Chronicler is functional but very early in development. Many features you might expect from a web browser have not yet been implemented. Your feedback is welcomed! Some features that have not yet been implemented include:

  • Keyboard shortcuts for everything (back/forward, open location, new tab).
  • Find in page.
  • Importing and exporting WARC files for interoperability.
  • Collections of pages, to restrict searching and manage disk space.
