A smarter, faster web browser
PalmerAL fix parsing of multi-line text nodes
Previously, if a text node contained a line break, the last word of the
first line and the first word of the next line would be merged
together, preventing either word from being searchable

Min is a smarter, faster web browser. It includes features such as:

  • Information from DuckDuckGo in the search bar.
  • Built-in ad and tracker blocking
  • Fuzzy search
  • Full-text search for visited pages
  • Reading list
  • Tabs improvements (tabs open to the right, and fade out when inactive).
  • Dark theme

More information, and prebuilt binaries are available here.

Note: Min uses an older version of Chromium, which may be missing security fixes from later versions. More Information

To run a prebuilt version, download one of the binaries here. If you want to build Min yourself, see the "Building" section below.


If you want to develop Min:

  • Install Node and Grunt.
  • Run npm install to install dependencies.
  • Build the translation files and a copy of the JS by running npm run build.
    • You can also watch for changes and automatically rebuild by running npm run watch.
  • Download a copy of Electron from here.
  • Start Min by running node_modules/.bin/electron ..1

1: Make sure no Min instance is already running before starting the development version of Min.

Building Binaries

If you are using OS X, install Homebrew, then run brew install fakeroot dpkg. Then:

  • Run npm run updateFilters to update the version of EasyList included with Min.
  • Run grunt macBuild, grunt linuxBuild, or grunt windowsBuild depending on which platform you want binaries for.

Contributing Translations

Thanks for taking the time to translate Min! To add translations for your local language:

  • Find the language code that goes with your language from this list.
  • In the localization/languages directory, create a new file, and name it "[your language code].json".
  • Open your new file, and copy the contents of the localization/languages/en-US.json file into your new file.
  • Change the "identifier" field in the new file to the language code from step 1.
  • Inside the file, replace each English string in the right-hand column with the equivalent translation.
  • (Optional) See your translations live by following the development instructions above. Min will display in the same language as your operating system, so make sure your computer is set to the same language that you're translating.
  • That's it! Make a pull request with your changes.
