Cake Browser was a swipe-based mobile web browser developed by Cake Technologies, Inc.,[1] a tech startup founded in 2016[2] in Provo, Utah.[3] Cake Browser displayed search results as preloaded web pages instead of a list of clickable links.[4][5][6] Results were swipeable across standard search verticals, including web search, image search, video search, news, and shopping.[2][7] In 2017, Cake Browser launched in test markets within Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and Taiwan.[7] It launched globally in 2018.[7] Cake Technologies announced in 2018 that it had raised $5 million in funding for Cake Browser led by Peak Ventures with participation from Pelion Venture Partners and Kickstart Seed Fund.[2][7]

In late 2022, Cake Browser was silently shut down. As of January 2023, their website redirects to Arc by The Browser Company.
