Cargo

A browser with almost no UI.

Cargo is a browser for people that live on the internet and hate mice. Cargo can be controlled using only a few keyboard shortcuts. Cargo only includes the most useful features of a browser, this way unnecessary features can't disturb you while surfing the interwebz. I built cargo, because I did not use most features that my browsers of choice(chrome and firefox) had.

Cargo is still in a very early state, but it is already usable, please help me developing it.

You can use one of our precompiled binaries to try out or install cargo.

Features

  • Chrome: Cargo uses electron's webview tags, which are powered by chromium.
  • Tabs: Like any other browser cargo supports tabs, but it hides them from you.
  • Devtools: Cargo has full support for chrome's devtools.
  • Cross platform: Cargo looks good on all platforms, even the titlebar on windows looks good.
  • Simple: Cargo only has the features most people need.
  • Tab restore: Cargo will automatically restore your previously opened tabs, when you open it.
  • Very cute: πŸš‚πŸš‹πŸš‹ Cargo(delivering the web to your home).
