Arc Browser: The New Way to Customize and Vandalize Websites
The Browser Company’s Mac-exclusive internet browser, Arc, has been challenging the traditional browsing experience since its launch over a year ago. With its unique sidebar approach and the ability to create customizable spaces for specific tasks, Arc offers users a fresh perspective on web browsing. Today, the browser is rolling out its latest update, Boosts 2.0, which aims to give users even more control over the sites they visit. While it may not be reinventing the internet, Boosts 2.0 introduces exciting possibilities for personalization and customization.
Boosts was first introduced a year ago with the goal of simplifying the creation of browser extensions. According to product designer Nate Parrott, the original Boosts release made it “10 times easier” to build extensions, but it still required technical skills and knowledge of coding. Boosts 2.0 takes a major leap forward by providing simple tools that allow users to tweak websites without requiring coding expertise. The aim was to make customization 50 times easier than making a Chrome extension, making it accessible to a wider audience.
