Dooble is a free and open source web browser. Dooble was created to improve privacy. Currently, Dooble is available for FreeBSD,  Linux, OS X, and Windows. Dooble uses Qt for its user interface and abstraction from the operating system and processor architecture. Because of this, Dooble should be portable to any system that supports POSIX threads and the Qt WebKit library, and triversally Qt, OpenSSL, SQLite and other common libraries. Dooble provides integration with Spot-On, a privacy focused communication suite written by the author of Dooble.
Dooble is designed and implemented in order to improve privacy and usability.
Version 1.26 of Dooble introduced support for addons. Linux and Windows installers contain the Interface plugin, a new Open Source Social Networking application that's similar to ChatZilla and Diaspora. As of version 1.40, the TorBrowser Add-On based on Vidalia is supported: Tor Browser Addon.
Dooble includes a simple bookmarks browser. Users may also modify an existing bookmark via a popup that's accessible from the location widget.
Distributed Search Engine
Encrypted Browsing Information
Most of the data that Dooble retains is stored using authenticated encryption. Dooble does not encode file associations and user settings. Dooble also provides a session-based model where the data is encrypted with a temporary password.
File Manager and FTP Browser
Highly-configurable proxy settings provide reasonable flexibility.
Dooble supports session restoration for authenticated sessions. If Dooble exits prematurely, the user may restore previous tabs and windows at the next authenticated session.
Third-Party Content Blocking
Some Web sites employ iFrames in order to distribute content from one or more third-party Web sites. Since this technology may raise privacy issues with some users, Dooble provides a means of blocking external content.
