Download on Flathub


Tangram is a new kind of browser. It is designed to organize and run your Web applications. Each tab is persistent and independent. You can set multiple tabs with different accounts for the same application.

Common use cases:

  • Stay up to date with your favorite communities; Mastodon, Twitter, ...
  • Merge all these chat applications into one; WhatsApp, Messenger, Telegram, ...
  • Group your organization tools under one application; EMail, Calendar, ...
  • One-stop for multiple sources of documentation or information


  • Setup and manage web applications
  • Persistent and independent tabs
  • Custom title
  • Re-order tabs
  • Change tabs position
  • Navigation
  • Shortcuts
  • Smart notifications
  • Downloads
  • Touchpad/touchscreen gestures


Tabs are independant and sandboxed from each others.

Both Flatpak and non-Flatpak versions of Tangram provide sandboxing for Web applications.

Use GNOME Builder.

If you knwo what you are doing - you can run from source locally instead:

./ runs the application in development mode. Hit <Ctrl><Shift>Q to restart the application.

  • data files are stored in ./var/data/ instead of $XDG_DATA_HOME/Tangram/
  • cache files are stored in ./var/cache/ instead of XDG_CACHE_HOME/Tangram/

To test desktop notifications you can add


make test
